Upto the last session,this series was named as ,”Let”s learn Tamil”. From this session, It will be named as

“Let’s learn Sinhala & Tamil”

Hope you all enjoyed talking in their own language with your friends.

As a start up,we shall test our memory from the words we learnt in the previous lesson.New readers can also try,because the answers are at the latter part of the article too.

Revising the memory: Try saying these English phrases in Sinhala as well as Tamil(Answers are at the latter part of the article)

01)Good morning.

02) How are you?

03)Have you had your breakfast?

04)Did you come for yesterday’s lecture?

05)Do you have the lecture note?

06) I am also in your group.

 

So,today we shall learn some words.

1.Morning =උදෑසන(udesana) =காலை (kaalai)

2.Afternoon= දවල් (dhawal) =பகல் (pagal)

3.Night =  රෑ (Rea) = இரவு (iravu)

Wishes( the wish to say “good” in Sinhala) – සුබ (subha)

So ,you can combine with the previous words and make,

Eg: සුබ (subha) උදෑසනක්. ( udesanak) – Good Morning

 

Wishes( the wish to say hello in Tamil) = வணக்கம் (vanakkam)

So ,you can combine with the previous words and make,

eg:  இரவு (iravu) வணக்கம் (vanakkam) -Good night

 

Food means – කෑම (kaema) – உணவு (unavu)

Now,try to combine this with the previous words and try to make words in sinhala and tamil for,
