10 Most Common Gujarati Words

Updated: Dec 27, 2022

Have you ever been to a different country that speaks the same language as you, but you can’t understand what they are saying?

Or have you learned a new language, but talked to a local and didn’t understand as much as you hoped you would?

It can be so frustrating to think you are going to understand something more than you actually end up understanding. You’re probably wondering, where’s the disconnect?

This might be for 2 reasons:

  1. Some of this might have to do with the accent of the locals: for example, in West Virginia, they say the English word “hollow” as “holler”, and if you just hear them say it verbally, you wont have a clue what they're talking about.

  2. OR the people have common slang that you didn’t learn in your Duo Lingo or Rosetta Stone app.

Sanskar Teaching aims to not only teach you the formal language but to make sure you know what the slang is… So, I’m here to fill in those gaps with Gujarati.

Here are the top 10 most used words in Gujarati:

Aapo meaning give in Gujarati

Besi haav means sit down in Gujarati

Chalk means let's go in Gujarati

Bhukh laagi means you hungry in Gujarati

Lo means take in Gujarati

Saaru means good in Gujarati

Chaale means its ok in gujarati
