The national language of India is Hindi. Though many others exist. I dont have the numbers but i guess more than 30 languages are widely spoken. I speak kannada, Marathi ,hindi and english. Most people in india know tow or three languages. Kannada is the official language of karnataka, marathis the official language of Maharashtra. Different states have a language of their own.

Hey Y, I am in America and I only know English also. I do have a problem with people who come to our country, don't know English (fine you can learn) and they do not make an attempt to learn any English at all. We live in a trailer park and there are Mexican's at least that's what we think they are. They have been here for about a year now, and the don't speak any ENGLISH! Sunday night our water was turned off by them, the spiket to the water thing broke and instead of going to the land lady and telling her, they decided to TURN the main water valve and SHUT down the water to EVERYONE! Hubby had to try his hardest to make the 1 guy understand that he had to turn it back on. If they spoke English it would have been a better situation for all. Now if I go somewhere, I will try to learn the language, I don't see why they don't try to learn English. This is not a complaint, just a comment.

Hindi is the national language of our country India but English is the language which connects the different regions of our country.As we all know India is a country with varied cast, creed and religion,there are thousands of language spoken in our country and thus difficult to understand everyone,thus English acts as a connector for most of the people in India is well versed with English and speak and write in English.

the national language in India is Hindi...but each state has a different official language...so not all people know Hindi. Most people (though not all) know English too. Most kids who go to school learn atleast 3 languages, English, Hindi and the official language of the state they are in...and if they are basically from another state...they learn their mother tongue at home.

I live in Canada and our Main Language is English. Technically its both English and French. Not that many people here actually speak French. THere is only one province (Quebec) that is predominately French speaking. All students in Canada have to take French in school though. Everything sold in Canada has to have French and English on it as well. But if you came to Canada it would probably be more useful to know Mandarin, Cantanese, or hindi as a second language. Especially in British Columbia where I live. We have a lot of people from other countries here.

Well, in my country... English is the second language... and my country is considered as the largest English speaking country in Asia... almost all people know how to speak and write in this language... and the signs, streets, tv programs, government speeches... and almost everything is written in English... but there is a move to be more on the national language side...
