Lesson 5 : Learn to read and write த ந

In this lesson, we will learn two more important Tamil consonants, த் ந், and their consonantal vowels, த ந.

When we combine the vowel அ (which has the sound as in arrive, cut) with the consonants த் and ந், we get the consonantal vowels த and ந respectively.


Refer to the table below to learn about the pronunciation and examples. Click on each letter to hear it read out for you.

Letter Type Combination Equivalent English pronunciation
த் Consonant - three, birth
Consonantal vowel த் + அ author, mother
ந் Consonant - month, enthusiasm
Consonantal vowel ந் + அ nut, null


Primarily, these letters are made up of staright lines and curves. Just start from the top left, continue downwards and left to right. You should finish writing a letter without lifting the pen from the paper. Look at the animations below that shows you how to write each letter.
