Namaskaram 🌼🤍
So, this is officially my first post lol. It's a bit confusing because Maybe I'm not very organized nor consistent with language learning, but I'm still trying.
I've been struggling with Malayalam alphabet for some months and when I noticed everything was turning into a snowball and I couldn't remember anything I decided to start all over again.
This is my attempt for the very first letters of the alphabet: അ «a» and ആ «aa». Malayalam, as well as other Indian languages, has an alphabet system comprised of single and double letters. The vowels are called സ്വരങ്ങൾ (svaram). The direction of writing is left to right in horizontal lines.
I'm using materials for now.
The words are:
അമ്മ: mother
അന്ന: Anna
ആന: elephant
ആമ: turtle
I'll be uploading other letters as my practice progress 🌼
