Georgian is spoken by approximately 4 million people. Georgian is counted among the southern Caucasian languages. It is written in its own semiotic system, the Georgian alphabet. This writing system has 33 letters. They have the same sequence as the Greek alphabet. However, the Georgian writing system is most likely derived from that of the Aramaic language.
In Georgian it is typical to have many consonants follow each other. Many Georgian words are therefore difficult for foreigners to pronounce. The grammar is also not very easy. It contains many elements that do not exist in any other language.
Georgian vocabulary reveals a lot about the history of the Caucasus. It contains many words that were adopted from other languages. Among them are Greek, Persian, Arabic, Russian and Turkish. But the special thing about Georgian is its long tradition. Georgian is among the oldest living languages of the civilized world!
