Telugu and tamil are dravidian languages in India. Telugu is predominantly spoken in Andhra Pradesh and in some parts of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. On the other hand Tamil is spoken predominantly in Tamil Nadu and some parts of Kerala, Andhra and Karnataka. These two languages are among the twenty two scheduled languages in India. Many people go to different states and if they know that language then there is no issue during communication but if they don't know much of that language then it will be very different.

So here is this site created so that both these languages can be learned easily so that communication becomes easy.
