I'm a native English speaker trying to learn Malayalam.  If this is something you've tried, too, you may have noticed there aren't many resources out there for those who don't already speak another Indian language.

So as long as I'm trying to make a go of it, I decided to use this webpage to:
  • Organize what I learn, so that I don't forget or lose track during the inevitable gaps in my studies
  • Provide a basic tutorial that might be able to help anyone else trying to make there way here.  I do have a day job, so it won't be perfect, but hopefully it's better than nothing!

Here's what I've got so far....

Unit 1: Overview
Unit 2: From total beginner to reading simple kids books 
(and eavesdropping on conversations noone knows you can follow yet....)

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.  If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.  - Nelson Mandela

I cannot seem to find you email id. Are you still learning Malayalam? I am interested in learning the language. It would be great to have a companion along the way. And the resources that you might have collected so far may help me a lot. Thank you! :) Waiting for you reply! :)
