    Thank you very much, Dilshan!
    I like this early morning motivation to get back to a bit of Singhala revision. I looove your flash cards!
    Now out into the garden for a bit of planting work, the flash cards will be buzzing around my brain …

    Have a great day and thanks again,

    Elisabeth

      Hi Elisabeth, great to hear from you again. It’s been a loooong time, right?

      Enjoy the gardening. Assuming it must be good weather this time of the year in your part of the world.

    Thank you Dilshan you are doing a phanthastic great job teaching singhala to the world what will leads to world recognition of singhala along with all other worlocal languages like English German French Russian Spanish Chinese and so on !!!!!!

    • Dilshan Jayasinha December 11, 2017 at 09:01 #

      Peter, I’m happy to see that I’m not the only one with the big dreams. I love the enthusiasm, thanks for the encouragement.

    Thanks Dilshan for being such an outstanding sinhala guru !! I’m enjoying your website and emails a lot and sorry for not acknowledging it more often with some feedback. Great job with the flashcards also – helps my slow (old !??) brain to register those lovely words and sentences much better than any book!
    I’m also looking forward to hearing the sound of Sinhala language very soon when arriving at Colombo airport end of next week! :o)
    Keep up the great work and have a wonderful evening!
    Sabine

      Wow, “Outstanding Sinhala Guru”. That’s definitely going into my ego bank. Thank you, I’m glad you’re enjoying my approach. Do keep at it and you’ll only find it gets easier. Have a great trip and tell me all about it when you’re back.
