HOW DOES IT WORK?
Watch to learn! See and hear how to speak your new language by watching video footage of native speakers, and learning from them. Conversations are spoken slowly so that beginning learners can understand everything. This language-learning method helps you build confidence on a computer before you test out your new speaking skills in the real world. Record yourself and listen to the playback to compare your pronunciation with the native speaker’s.

Play to learn with interactive games. Then take a comprehension quiz and see how you do in real-life social situations. A challenging recording quiz tests your pronunciation. You earn points for every game you play, and can earn bronze, silver and gold awards for your language achievements!

You can also learn on the go with a printable phrasebook. Practice your new language at school, on the plane... whenever you have a free moment!

Level 2 is designed to reinforce the basics of language fundamentals and will help you build proficiency in your new language. Interactive exercises and videos help build language fluency and keep novices engaged. Learn basic conversational phrases with structures you can adapt to fit different situations. Most importantly, Level 2 gives you the confidence to speak in your new language with a unique recording function.

WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

Examples of things you will learn include, “I’d like to pay by credit card,” “My camera has been stolen,” and “Where is the pharmacy?” Topics cover greetings, shops and restaurants, getting around, hotels, phone calls, emergencies, leisure and the basic vocabulary of business and technology.



WHY LEARN SINHALA?

  • Learn Sinhala to understand Sri Lankan culture.
  • Learning the Sinhala language can help you in the marketplace in Sri Lanka.

Visiting Sri Lanka

Sinhala is spoken by about 16 million speakers and is the official language of Sri Lanka. Set in the Indian Ocean in South Asia, the tropical island nation of Sri Lanka has a history dating back to the birth of time. It is a place where the original soul of Buddhism still flourishes and where nature’s beauty remains abundant and unspoiled.

Few places in the world can offer the traveler such a remarkable combination of stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, captivating cultural heritage and unique experiences within such a compact location. It is a great benefit to learn the main language, Sinhala. Within a mere area of just over 25,000 square miles lie eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, more than 820 miles of coastline — much of it pristine beaches — 15 national parks showcasing an abundance of wildlife, nearly 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, 250 acres of botanical gardens, 350 waterfalls, 25,000 water bodies, to a culture that extends back to over 2,500 years. This is an island of magical proportions, once known as Serendib, Taprobane, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, and Ceylon.

Sinhala-speaking Countries

Sinhala is also spoken in the islands of Maldives.

 Here are some of the basic Sinhala phrases that you will use often:

  • Sama venna. (Excuse me.)
