Get the right language on your travels in Nepal and neighbouring India and Pakistan: due to the high number of spoken languages, the 'official' language may not be the best one to learn for every area.

Fun facts about Nepali

Nepalis tell you to mind your own business by saying 'don't ask for the address of a village that you won't visit'!

Some pronouns like 'he' and 'she' can have up to eight different forms depending on formality and whether the person being spoken about is nearby or far away.

Nepali speakers often confuse 's' and 'sh' sounds, pronouncing them both as 's'.
