Lazy But Smart

Sinhala Reading Guide

Volume I

For anyone who's even slightly interested in learning to read basic Sinhala but didn't want to put in the effort.

"I have tried to learn Sinhala to better communicate with my wife and her family for a few years without learning to read or write it. To say the least, it hasn't been working as well as I'd like.

I always wanted to look up words that I hear but don't understand in a dictionary, and couldn't because of not being able to spell.

Dilshan's reading guide has helped me immensely with this. Hearing him say the sound the letter makes while I am looking at it was a great way to learn. Self-teaching with books is great, but pronunciation is lost without a product like Dilshan's.

I cannot wait for him to release subsequent volumes."

The Problem:

This is the traditional Sinhala alphabet grid that was taught to me as a kid:


(That was the sound of my young brain exploding)

- It was overwhelming

- I later found out that some letters are rarely used

- It wasn't fun for me


And most importantly,


-It's not how I'd want my future kids to learn it!

My Solution:

Come up with an unorthodox and fun way of learning key letters of the Sinhala alphabet to effortlessly read basic Sinhala words

"I liked that Dilshan's Sinhala Reading Guide contained lots of words that allowed me to get used to each letter and that it also contained words which are only used in the written language. It was very helpful and was definitely a good way to get started recognizing the letters, sounding out words, and learning some new Sinhala vocabulary too".

My Method:

- Select key letters from the traditional alphabet grid

- Completely rearrange them according to what makes sense to me

- Present it in 11 groups

- Give each group an easy to remember identity like this:

Item #3:  Lazy But Smart Sinhala Playground

I just went through the entire Playground section in 10 mins. That is an excellent way to practice speeding my reading up! Before this, I used to get so frustrated trying to read passages because it took me too long to read. This playground section helped so much. Thought I'd shout some praise.

"This package has been very helpful and I would definitely recommend it as a good place to start on the path to learning to read Sinhala. I have also already requested Dilshan to make more reading guides like this, and am hoping to learn more about reading Sinhala with him in the future."
