      Hello,

      I am planning to learn Pali language. I have found a couple of resources. If anyone knows any other good resources please share.

      1) Pali Primer by Lily De Silva

      2) A Course in the Pali Language

      Thank you, Aniduan.

      I saw the following being referred to as a good resource for a beginner. I am not sure how good it is:

      It will play the whole series sequentially. You can also select different lessons by using the hamburger selector on the top.

      Here are more resources for learning Pali:

      Learn Pali

      Concise Pali-English Dictionary by A.P. Buddhadatta Mahathera
      – A few words have wrong meanings!

      Another good resource is the book, “Pali – Buddha’s Language” by Kurt Schmidt.
      – In particular, Appendix B on “Grammar Basics” provides a guide to declension, how the same word is modified to indicate tense, gender, etc.
