    The language Tamil is the easiest language to learn, understand, write , read and speak because of its limited alphabets. Only 12 vowels and 18 consonants (Total 30) form the alphabets. The vowels have different simple script when combined with consonants. Therefore writing and reading will be an easy task and can be accomplished within a week time.

    The language is also very easy to communicate orally as it has no tongue twisting words like the Malayalam language.

    These days learning a language is very easy. Many publishers especially the Balaji Publications publishes its National Integration Language Series - Titled "Learn(language)in 30 days". So there should not be any problem for the Non-Tamil speakers. The initiative and interest to learn a language is a primary must to learn a language.

    The easiest, effective and best way to learn to speak Tamil is to first learn the script and the grammar. Learning to speak without knowing the script and grammar may be less time consuming but you wont be able to build your own sentences and your knowledge of Tamil language would be limited.

    Please do the following to learn Tamil:
    1. Get yourselves a very basic English-Tamil learner's book.
    2. If you have any friends in India/ friends who travel to India get the textbooks of primary school students. This will help you in building your vocabulary.
    3. There are many online courses for learning Tamil. But these would be useful only when you know the basics of Tamil grammar.
    4. The best thing would be to have someone who knows Tamil , assist you as and when you learn.

    Learning Tamil by frequently talking to someone who knows Tamil may be less time consuming, but you will get to know only the common words and phrases without actually knowing the underlying grammar.
    All the best.
