A language born in the Indo-Aryan period of prehistoric India, Assamese is one of the few ‘oldest’ languages in India. Spoken in Assam, a state known for its tea, national parks, and heritage sites, the language is one of the few languages in the world with no clear origins. Even though it is the state language of Assam, the language has been internationalized by the Assamese speaking community in Europe, North America, and in the Middle East.
The language boasts strong roots in literature, which emerged from the court poets of the Ahom Kingdom in Assam in the fourteenth century. Learn the language of this centuries old civilization and indulge yourself in the ancient culture and literature of Assam.
