LBSS 07: Your Age in Sinhala – Part (2/2) [AUDIO TUTORIAL]

Play

age in sinhala

This is Part 2 of the Audio Tutorial “Your Age in Sinhala”.

I recommend… no, actually, I’m telling you to go listen to Part 1 so that you don’t get lost in the middle of it.

In Part 2 we’ll look at:

  • How to ask someone their age in Sinhala
  • How to tell someone your age in Sinhala

And we’ll revise what we covered in both parts by going through a sample dialogue and some questions & answers.

      You’re absolutely right! Yes, the streaming audio at the top of the page was the correct one but the downloadable mp3 version was indeed of Session 5. Thanks for pointing it out. I’ve fixed it now.
