learn sinhala podcast - session 4

In this session I do an Audio Tutorial on Introducing Yourself in Sinhala

You’ll need to listen to the first Audio Tutorial (Session 02) in order to understand this one better.

This is the 4th session of the Lazy But Smart Sinhala Podcast and in this you will learn:

  • The possessives of some pronouns we already saw
  • 2 easy ways to introduce yourself
  • How to ask someone their name
  • How to say “thank you” and “I’m fine, thank you”

And like in the previous Audio Tutorial, at the end of the session we’ll go through a sample dialogue between you and me and I’ll ask you some questions on the material we just covered.

    Thank you for the lesson again. I was wondering whether in Sinhala the plural form of I and He which are We and They exist or not. If they do, please state’em.
