About This Book

More than a million Sri Lankan Tamils now live abroad having left the country during the civil war. Many are fluent in the language of their host country be that English, German, French or Italian. Their children, who might speak Tamil at home, would rarely use it outside of the house. There will come a time when many in the Diaspora would want to visit Sri Lanka and knowledge of Tamil would help then enormously. There are also a large number of western travellers, businessmen and NGO staff that spend time in both Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu who would find this book useful in getting around. This book is aimed at both these groups of people. It is divided up into small sections that can easily be found. The English word is followed by the Tamil one and a pronunciation guide. The use of the Tamil script is important to help readers learn the different letters and recognise them in road and shop signs.
