    Hi Ladies,

    I am new to this thread ; am actually Kannadiga and married Thrissur guy(malayali). Hope no offense if used malayali.:lowdown
    After marriage we moved to US and its been 8 months we are here.
    I would like to learn and speak malayalam as I am on TTC and it will be easy for baby to learn and speak malayalam if both the parents are speaking same language.

    I saw online sites for learning but I find by having kind of conversation will be easier to learn.
    please help me to learn from small words to big sentences.

    nyan peru renu :) :bonk
