Learn Georgian

This is the official language of the Republic of Georgia and is known locally as kartuli. It is a Kartvelian or South Caucasian language which has a few sister languages also spoken in Georgia and written with the Georgian script, called Mkhedruli. A characteristic feature of Georgian is its large number of consonants, which are often strung together at the start of words in clusters that can be hard to pronounce. For example, 'life' is tskhovreba, 'horse' is ts’kheni, and 'cloud' is ghrubeli.
