Dear Kannadiga, I admire your noble intention, but I wonder what would be the motivation for Javaranchers to learn Kannada? Why do you think we should teach them a (Kannada) lesson?
Ofcourse, there are always curious minds, so here are a few good resources:
This site teaches the Kannada alphabet - there's audio, so you can actually hear how the letter sounds. The audio file on the main page reads out the entire alphabet. Click on each letter to go to a description page, where you can hear the letter, and sample words using the letter. Here's the site: Kannada Kali
(if the audio file doesn't play on Windows Media Player, use Real Audio).
And this one takes you further, with sample sentences: Learn Kannada
And here's another link explaining the Kannada alphabet's origin and features: Kannada Alphabet
That's a good start, don't you think, Mr/Ms Kannadiga?
>Why cant kannada language be used?
See previous post by Nanhesru Ningyake. To put in simple words, the objective in enforcing an English-only rule is to ensure everyone
understands what you are saying. Don't you agree?
