Are the languages ​​of Bajjika Maithili the same

Languages ​​in Nepal (Nepali for tourists)

The official language in Nepal is Nepali.

However, as the second official language, English is very widespread and is understood and spoken almost everywhere. This usually does not apply to smaller, remote villages.

Many ethnic groups in Nepal speak their own languages ​​in addition to Nepali and English, such as Maithili, Bhojpuri, Tharu, Tamang, Newari, Bajjika.

Interestingly, the most beautiful, purest and most accent-free Nepali is not spoken in Nepal, but in India (Darjeeling). This is largely due to the fact that over a million Nepali emigrated to India and Bhutan.

Useful vocabulary in Nepali

Nepali is an extremely difficult language and yet there are a few idioms in Nepali that any tourist can quickly learn and use. This not only helps with communication while traveling, but also shows the interest in the culture and the people in Nepal.
