New Konkani Tabloid 'Goencho Ulo' in Roman Script Launched

A new Konkani tabloid "Goencho Ulo" in Roman Script launched on Thursday.

The first editorial of the newly-launched Konkani tabloid in Roman script written by Joel D'Souza.

The ten-page tabloid [6 colour pages + 2 B/W pages] is issued free to the konkani reading public all over Goa. Currently it is planned as a fortnightly. The promoters hope to raise funds to keep it that way. It will be self-financing or cease to exist. The onus is on all who love the language and want the script to generate advertisement revenue. The initial push came from Rs.30,000/- sent by Ben Antao.

"Anink ek panvl, anink ek divli pettli." meaning "One more step, one more lamp is lit." is the title of the front page edit.

Hello to all,
I am a christian married to a Konkani speaking man, and am wanting to learn the language so I can fit in well with my inlaw's especially with my mom in law. I want to know if there is anyway i can learn the language on line. I know there is no script for konkani, but is there any other way i can learn the language on line, like the language written in english format so i can pronounce and learn how to speak..i want to do this to surprise my husband too. So please help
