Vaṇakkam

Updated: Mar 14

Hello to you, spoken in Tamil




Do you speak Tamil (5000 years old)? –The Oldest Living Language of the World Spoken by 78 million people and is the official language in Sri Lanka and Singapore. It is the only ancient language that has survived all the way to the modern world. Unlike many other languages where there are multiple ways of greeting, in Tamil there is just one way of greeting others. To greet someone in person or while on the telephone or internet, you would say 'Vanakkam' and, if meeting in person, you would say this with palms pressed against each other facing the person.
