Yeah there’s over a 100 maybe even thousands of languages spoken in India. However most of those are dialects spoken in a small area such as villages and etc. India actually has about 20 something major languages that the majority of the population speaks. The major ones I know are Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, and Malayalam.

Hope that helps :man_with_turban:t4:‍♂

I wish Spanish was taught in elementary school tbh given our huge Hispanic population and that it’s easier to learn at a younger age.
