Finding Content to Help You Learn Gujarati
The joy of language learning is indeed always wanting more – more words, phrases, rules, and languages to help us navigate and understand the world. The perfect example of this is the Indo-Aryan language of Gujarati spoken by 55.5 million people worldwide. Yes, that’s three fives!
The 700-year-old Gujarati language is native to the nation of Gujarat in India but is also spoken in Bangladesh, Fiji, and many parts of South Asia. As such, it is a global language. In fact, it is one of the fastest growing and most widely-spoken Indian languages in the United States and Canada.
