Learn Kannada Easily: An Awesome Beginner-Friendly Course

Last Updated on March 6, 2023 by Tariq

Want to learn Kannada? Wondering how to learn Kannada easily? Want to start conversing in Kannada like a pro?

Guess what? I’ve got you covered.

Kannada (ಕನ್ನಡ) is a Dravidian language predominantly spoken by the people of Karnataka.

Kannada is also the language spoken by linguistic minorities in the states such as Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Kerala, and Goa.

By 2011, the Kannada language had roughly 43 million native speakers and was also spoken by over 12.9 million non-native speakers in Karnataka as a second and third language.

All of which adds up to nearly 57 million speakers.

With a number of non-Kannadigas considering Bangalore (Bengaluru) (and Mysore) as their home, it surely helps to learn how to speak Kannada.

After all, ‘When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do’!

Want to learn Kannada online?

Starting with the absolute basics, I’ve included all you’ll need to learn Kannada for absolute beginners.

With that being said, ‘Kannada Kaliyona.’ (which means, let’s learn Kannada)
