A short history of the Tamil language

English to Tamil subtitling service

Tamil is a Dravidian language. It is spoken by around 52 million people mainly in India and Sri Lanka. There are also Tamil speakers in Vietnam, Canada, Singapore, the USA, Australia and the United Kingdom. Migrant communities have also settled in Germany, so you will hear Tamil there too.

Tamil is the official language of Sri Lanka and Singapore. It also has an official status in two other Indian areas. The language is also taught in schools in Malaysia, where they also teach Mandarin Chinese, Malay and English. In 2004 the government of India named it as the first ‘classical language.’

Inscriptions using Tamil date back to 500 BC and Tamil literature has existed since 300 BC. It was the first Indian language to be published, when in 1578, a Tamil prayer book was printed.

Reunion Island have settlers with Tamil origins, but the French who rule the island prohibited people from speaking Tamil. Although now it’s not the case and students on Reunion are showing an interest in learning Tamil again.

There are a number of Tamil dialects and also forms of speaking which range from a formal style, to a classic literary style and a colloquial style.
