Mar 3, 2012 One thought on “does anyone know what language is spoken in sri lanka?” Krishantha says: March 29, 2012 at 3:53 pm Sinhala also known as Sinhalease is the language spoken by majority of Sri Lankans. Sinhala language is unique to Sri Lanka and it is a very ancient language. I think it derives from Sanskruth but there many Sri Lankan scholars who claim that Sinhalease is the original language and many other language derived from it. Then we have Tamil. Tamil language came to Sri Lanka from South India. Sri Lankan muslims also speak Tamil. There is no big difference between South Indian Tamil language and Sri Lankan Tamil dialects. English as the international language and being the medium of instructions in higher education, it is the second language of most of Sri Lankans.
