What Should I Know About This Dive?

Congrats! You are thinking about pursuing (or continuing your pursuit of) Malayalam! Awesome you! 
Malayalam is a language of India.  It is not only spoken in Kerala, but also its neighboring states, like Karnataka and Puducherry. Mastering Malayalam can be very helpful while navigating the streets of Kerala, or when doing business in India. In fact, Malayalam is the 8th most spoken language in India!
Malayalam has the most number of letters of any Indian language. If you include conjoined consonants, there are more than 500 letters. The easy part of Malayalam is vocabulary as Malayalam has quite a few borrowed words from Sanskrit. But you should also be careful because there are a lot of words that are the same in Hindi but have a different meaning. The people speaking Malayalam are very fast and flexible at talking, causing others to find it tricky to understand. 
We are proud to share with you this completely free online compendium of resources to help you get started with, improve, and ultimately master the Malayalam language. 
To that end, on the pages to come, you will find a bunch of truly helpful Malayalam language resources, each answering a key question you need the answer to. We also provide a list of resources, broken down by level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced, to ensure you get the support you need, no matter at what level you may find yourself. 
Where do the resources come from? Our members and staff. We individually screen every resource prior to posting to ensure high quality and to verify the authenticity of each. If it's listed, it means a) one of our Break Diving members has used the resource and highly recommends it, and b) the listed resource has in some way supported the growth of Break Diving and believes in our mission (or at the very least, has not actively refused to support our mission). You can trust that each resource we list is legitimate, and has our Break Diving seal of approval. If you have any issues with any of the resources listed, please reach out and let us know! 
That all being said, it's time to take a deep dive into Malayalam. Ready?
