Is Tamil a tough language to learn for north Indians? myths vs reality

Let's find out!

There’s a famous Chinese proverb that states that “to learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world”.  Isn’t it true? Learning a new language not only adds to your vocab but also provides a different vision of life. But, honestly is learning a new language is easy? Well, the answer to the question varies from individual to individual. No language is harder. Learning any language depends upon the desire, willingness, ability and determination of the person who wants to learn that language. Learning an alien language requires some effort and practice. Learning Tamil is no exception. Many times, being North Indians, we didn’t even give learning a try as we are under the clouds of many myths related to the language.

Here we are trying to bust some myths about the Tamil language so that you can take a step ahead to learn this ancient Dravidian language:

 

Complex Grammar:

It is a myth that Tamil has complex grammar. But actually, in Tamil, vowels and consonants are 12+18. In Tamil there are no joint letters, half letter, midpoint combination of letters, shortfall of one letter over the other in the top, middle and at the bottom as we find in Hindi. Tamil rather has simple grammar.            

 

Typical Gender rule

 In Hindi, even non-living things are classified as masculine and feminine genders, but in Tamil, it is not so. There are no such gender rules in Tamil that make it easy to learn.

 

Tough Pronunciation

 Tamil pronunciation may seem complicated and hard to any Hindi speaker. Apparently, it seems true but if one makes effort to listen carefully to whatever they are speaking then you’ll find that it’s not that hard. Watching Tamil movies (obviously with subtitles) can help a lot. (And believe me, the movies have great content).

 

Speaking wrong Tamil can offend Tamilians

The way beginners speak Tamil is no less than a comic scene from movies. But, still, no one gets offended and enjoys and encourages them to speak more and more.

 

So, if you are a North Indian and happen to be in Tamil Nādu for your studies, job or even for travel, consider learning Tamil. Moreover, learning Tamil is now easier than ever as Language Curry introduced Tamil in its app to make learning Tamil fun and easy. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app, start your learning journey, and as we know, with languages we are at home anywhere.
