Maldivian Language-Basic Dhivehi

We speak our own language, named Dhivehi, with varying dialects from north to south. But since most of us are fluent in English throughout the country, communication with our guests is almost never a problem. But even when a language barrier does present itself, we Dhivehin have always been known for the warmness in our hearts and the love in our hearts – and as they say, love is a universal language. But if you would like to get to learn a few phrases ahead of your trip to the Maldives, our Basic Dhivehi section has all the basic Dhivehi you need to know, to make communication during your trip to the Maldives as seamless as possible.
