Assam had been an ideal meeting ground for diverse races; streams of human waves carrying with them distinct cultures and trends in civilization settled here. Austro-Asiatics, Negritos, Dravidians, Alpines, Indo-Mongoloids, Tibeto-Burmese and Aryans penetrated into Assam through different routes. Assamese people are a uniquely fused community and their language is a unique fusion of languages of the races. What a wonderful experience it would be if we learn this language.While sipping a cup of tea don’t we think of Assam, which despite its depleted size due to partition contributes fifteen percent of total production of tea in the world. Assamese has been instrumental in fostering and enriching the regional languages of India thereby inculcating sublime India culture, Readwell’s Learn Assamese in a Month will qualify you to enter a realm which is varied and rich. Moreover, learning it though English will be interesting and informative.
