With the precedence of the article series written by Alumni Thulansanan Viveganandarajah, it’s with great pleasure that I get to recontinue this series. Still, I would like to make a small change in the flow, which will be useful to both who are willing to learn Tamil and also for those who wish to learn Sinhala. So, the series will continue as,
“Let’s learn Sinhala & Tamil”
Note that the below will be in the talkative language, which might help in spoken aspect of the language before we learn the written aspect.
Hence, we start up with some day to day greetings we use in our university.
Try these with your university mates of the other language.
It will be fun !
