Ya i know that language. It is the official language of tamil nadu and also it is spoken by millions of other tamils all over the world. The tamil language has similarities with south indian languages.

I'm sorry, I wasn't formiliar with the language untill I saw it on this discussions. I haven't a clue how it sounds or where it is spoken, I did read that you are in India and I read that it's also spoken in Sri Lanka in another response so I guess I learned just a tad more about it today :)

Hello Coolgeth, I am fully aware of the language but I don't know how to speak in Tamil. In Malaysia, we have Indians who speak in their mother tongue language beside English.

I checked your profile and you are from India. Mostly the Tamil language is used in Tamil Nadu. In my country Sri Lanka we have about 2 million Tamils and it is one of the official languages. The language is much like Sinhala but one drawback is the inability to differentiate between Cha and Sa, Tha and Dha, Pa and Ba and Ka and Ga. In some cases the mother calls the some Apilash and the father calls him Abilash. Also Thevagi to some is Devaki to others. Just like Sinhala the Tamil language is very phonetic and is easy to learn. Unfortunately though I can read and write a bit, I cannot speak in Tamil.
