Overview

Bangalore, or Bengaluru as it’s known today, is India’s 3 most populous city with 8.426 million people [2011].

Bangalore is the capital of Karnataka, and the official language is Kannada. It would be great if you knew a smattering of Kannada to get going in Bangalore. Here are some useful phrases that you could learn to get by in Bangalore.

People speak and understand English. Plus, cultural communities speak Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
