The official language of Nepal, Nepali, is widely spoken by the majority of the population. It belongs to the Indo-Aryan language family and shares close similarities with Hindi and Bengali. Nepali has a significant historical background and has been influenced by Sanskrit as well as the languages of neighboring countries like Tibet and India. Nepali is characterized by its highly structured nature, encompassing unique grammar and pronunciation rules. It is primarily written in the Devanagari script, which is also utilized for Hindi and Sanskrit. With a total of 12 vowels and 36 consonants, Nepali is spoken by a global community of over 17 million individuals.

In addition to Nepali Language, Nepal’s constitution recognizes several other official languages. These include Maithili, Bhojpuri, Tharu, Tamang, and Newari. Maithili is predominantly spoken in the eastern Terai region, while Bhojpuri is spoken in the southern Terai region. Tharu is spoken in both the Terai region and the hills, and Tamang is spoken in the central and eastern parts of Nepal. Newari is primarily spoken in the Kathmandu valley and its surrounding areas.
