Good episode? Give it some love!
Hello Language Lovers! Thank you for joining me for this episode of Speaking Tongues- the podcast in conversation with multilinguals. This week, my guest is EliKutty and we’re talking about her language of Malayalam.

In this episode, we talk about how she became a language teacher overseas and how a chance encounter in the Emirates led to her learning Malayalam. She tells us about the early days of trying to find resources for Malayalam and what she was able to do when those resources fell short. We talk about the ups and downs of learning certain sounds in Malayalam and how her experience as a teacher helped her find efficient ways to learn the language. We also talk a bit about humor in the Malayalam language, how other Malayali creators are making resources for people to learn their language and we talk about things that she loves about the culture and the food in Kerala.

Big thank you to EliKutty for joining me all the way from Vietnam for this conversation and for all of the work you do to highlight Kerala, its culture, its creators and its language.  If you enjoy this episode of Speaking Tongues, don’t forget to subscribe, rate and review the Speaking Tongues Podcast on Apple Podcasts or like and subscribe on YouTube so that other language lovers like ourselves can find the show!
