Class 1 (09/12/2009)

Telugu Keyboard at Google Transliteration

Dear Students:

In this class, we will be using a technique called "transliteration" to teach Telugu.
Transliteration means representing the sounds of one language in another language.

The picture above represents the Telugu alphabet and how it can be represented in English. When I introduce a Telugu word to you in the class, I will try to represent in three ways.

(1) Telugu Word written in Telugu
(2) Same word written in Transliteratiion
(3) Equivalent English word in English

By the way, you can play with Telugu alphabets on Google.
Click here and type your name in English in the text box and see your name appear in Telugu.
Can you try tracing your name in Telugu and show it to me?

Happy Learning
