Learn Tigrinya

Tigrinya is a Semitic language originating in the Middle East. Although not necessarily understood by those speaking other Semitic languages, there are linguistic similarities. Different scripts are used for the different Semitic languages, but mostly they do not use alphabets: instead, they use abjads, which do not include vowels. Tigrinya and Amharic use a modified abjad which uTalk will help you with!
