Foreign languages ​​easier to learn for Indians

0
Learning languages ​​is more than learning words, it’s soaking up cultures. February 21 is International Mother Language Day. Learning a new language has always been on your to-do list, but you don’t know which one to choose? Here is an overview of languages ​​very close to your mother tongue, but foreign. Go ahead, learn them and check them off your to-do list.


German

Drawing many of its expressions and terms from the Indo-European language, it also draws parts from Latin, Greek, French and English. For Indians, it is easier to be German-speaking, especially if they have a background in Sanskrit.

Persian
The grammar of this southwestern Iranian language is similar to many contemporary European languages. With heavy lexical influences drawn from its neighbors, especially Irani, Urdu, Arabic, from time to time you consciously or unconsciously use terms from the language, all thanks to the Mughals who enriched our culture with romantic terms and greetings we still use . Have you used Khosh Amadid before? “You’re welcome.” All other Indo-Iranian languages ​​like Pashto, Kurdish and Balochi will be equally easy or difficult to learn.

Nepalese

While a significant number of people in India, like those from Sikkim and Darjeeling, speak Nepali, it shouldn’t be too difficult to learn this language, especially if you are from the eastern part of the country. With influences from Sanskrit, other Pahari languages ​​and Magahi, it has lexical similarities with Bengali. Along the same lines, you can also opt for Tibetan.

Sinhalese

Indo-Aryan language, it is the mother tongue of the Sinhalese who are the largest ethnic group in Sri Lanka. When formally spoken, it is very similar to Pali and Medieval Sinhalese; but its phonetic and grammatical features are very close to the Dravidian languages, especially Tamil.

Romance languages

As English is the second language of many Indians today (almost close to being their mother tongue), Romance languages ​​like Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Romanian come to your rescue. Many schools and colleges have made French (and Spanish too, in some cases) their second language and it is easier to choose, given the influence of European culture on our lives. Imbibing the language of the classics in our everyday use will make you realize how many borrowings English has taken from each of them.

Malay
Official language of Malaysia, the language borrowed from Sanskrit, Hindi, Tamil, Dutch, English, Portuguese and some Chinese dialects and is therefore easier to understand.
