The history of Sri Lanka is also very good to know I am only 9 and I am learning about the history of Sri Lanka. But if you think about it I live in Sri Lanka so there you go you now know the national language on Sri Lanka and it is a very good tropical island Aswell so if you come here on holiday check out the beaches the culture and most of all the people get to know them because they are really nice the first 6 weeks I was here I felt like I was living the dream but then after you spend quite a bit of time here it gets even better. Hope you learnt something National Languages are Sinhalese and Tamil, both of which are spoken widely throughout the country.

The language is Sinhala, an ancient buddhist language used even years before sanskrit. Now 89% of the island uses that language, in fact 1 of every 100,000 people speak sinhala on the island. But that leaves 11% of the island to speak something else. 6% speak Tamil, and only 4% speak it well. 5% speak english and only English. So that leaves you with three languages that are spoken on the island nation of Sri Lanka, and out of the 89% that speak sinhala 53% can speak little English with it. Sanskrit and Lancastrian Sinhala, Tamil and English.

What is the capital of Sri Lanka?

User Avatar
The national political capital is Sri Jayawadenapura Kotte (Kotte, meaning Fortress), just east of the major city and former capital of Colombo. Most of the administrative functions, and diplomatic missions, are still centered in Colombo, some 30 years after the official relocation of Parliament in 1982. The two cities are located on the lower west coast. Since 100 AD, the national capital has been located in several cities, including Kotte. Their historical order is: Anuradhapura Plonnaruwa Anuradhapura Galigamuwa Kotte (1391) Kandy (1592) Colombo (1815) Kotte (1982) Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte is the official capital of Sri Lanka, an island country in South Asia.

They are kind hearted men, but with some cultural problems they can be childish. They can be intelligent but in my opinion they don't achieve their full potential, and most of them are trustworthy. They are known for their faithfull nature,so they are gonna still love you in the morning. So, in my humble opinion, Sri Lankan men are super awesome.

Asked in Sri Lanka, Calling and Area Codes

Where is telephone country code 94?

User Avatar
Country code +94 (dialed as 00 94 from many places) is Sri Lanka. Note that you must drop the trunk prefix 0 from the beginning of the Sri Lankan number when calling internationally. For example, Colombo's area code 011 becomes +94 11. Mobile numbers begin with +94 7. (The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.)
