Learning Nepali for Foreigners

Introduction to Nepali language

Nepali or Nepalese language is widely spoken in Nepal and is the main language of the country. Nepali is also spoken in some parts of India and Bhutan among the Nepali community. Nepali language is also one of the official languages in India. Nepali language was derived from Sanskrit and some words from the English language are also used frequently in Nepali. Nepali language is written in Devanagari script same like Hindi and Sanskrit. The script is written from left to right and each word is completed by giving a horizontal line on the top of the word. There are more than 21 million people who speak Nepali as their mother tongue including Nepal, India and Bhutan.

Nepali is the official language of Nepal but there are several other languages spoken in Nepal like Tibetan, Newari, Maithali, Bhojpuri, Tharu, Tamang, Gurung, Magar, Sherpa etc. The population living in Terai parts of Nepal speaks Hindi as well and the urban population of Nepal can understand Hindi. There is some similarity in Nepali and Hindi language with some similar words which are used in both.
