About Learning Gujarati with Berlitz
Gujarati is spoken principally in the state of Gujarat, westernmost India, bordering Pakistan and the Arabian Sea. Like the other languages of the northern two-thirds of India, it is descended from Sanskrit, and is thus a member of the Indo-European family. Gujarati is written in an alphabet similar to that of Sanskrit and Hindi, but without the “headstroke,” or horizontal line, at the top. With about 50 million speakers, it is one of the official provincial languages recognized by the Indian constitution.
