How does Persian sound to Pakistanis

Language and phrasebook Urdu

What language do the Pakistani speak? Knowledge of English is widespread in Pakistan, but it opens doors and hearts to master a few words of the national and official language Urdu.

The National language is Urdu, an Indo-Aryan language that belongs to the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-German language family. Urdu has both HindiElements as well persian or. arabic Characteristics. The cursive script is therefore also borrowed from the latter culture area.

In fact, Urdu is only spoken by a fraction of the Pakistani population, 7 percent to be precise, but as an administrative language it connects all dialectically influenced regions. The original ones still exist in these Regional languages Punjabi, Sindhi, Pashtu, Seraiki and Baluchi. English is understood in large parts of the country and spoken at a good level.

Hospitable people! Anyone who discovers Pakistan from the inside out forgets all clichés and prejudices ...
