How to make more progress in Kannada?
Kannada was designated as a classical language in 2008, and it is thought to be at least 2500 years old, making it India’s third oldest language after Sanskrit and Tamil. Kannada is one of India’s 22 official languages as well as 14 regional languages. Kannada has spoken in around 20 dialects (Ethnologue). They’re usually divided into three categories: northern, southern, and central. The nearby languages, such as Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, and others, have influenced many of the dialects.
In terms of phonology, syntax, and lexicon, there is a significant contrast between the spoken and written versions of the language. There are several regional dialects of Kannada spoken, but the written version is relatively standardised. There are also a variety of social groups based on caste or social status. Brahmin, non-Brahmin, and Untouchable are the three dialects of colloquial Kannada, dependent on social origin. The normal, or prestigious, variety is built on the Mysore-Bangalore area’s middle-class, educated Brahmin dialect.
There are a few very simplest ways to make progress in any language that your learning and the same goes for Kannada
In the first place, I would recommend you to know the basics really well; and understand the basic differences between other languages and Kannada especially in terms of sentence formation, grammar and syntax. For example, Kannada follows the Subject-Object-Verb order, while most other languages follow the Subject-Verb-Object order.
In the second place, I would recommend you listen to as many authentic Kannada resources you can find online, or on television, or watch Kannada movies, see Kannada serials, listen to Kannada songs, so that you can build your listening skills in Kannada and can identify the words being spoken, the way their spoken, the accent the places where the speakers take breathers, and so on and so forth.
Last but not least I would recommend you to speak as much Kannada as possible as a beginner. It is impossible that you do not make mistakes or start by speaking fluently, but that is just fine because it is the same for any other learner, learning any other language; so I would recommend you to make yourself strong and do go ahead and accept the fact that you are likely to make mistakes and be ok with it. Apart from that, I would also recommend you to start speaking in Kannada starting with smaller sentences, even if they are imperfect and go on building correct ones as you move ahead in your learning journey. A great help in sentence building would be, if you are able to converse with a Kannada native speaker, who not only can correct your mistakes but can also give you feedback on your written and spoken Kannada!
