Georgian is a Kartvelian language spoken by about 4.1 million people mainly in Georgia, and also in Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Iran, and is the official language of Georgia and one of the oldest living languages in the world. Georgian has its own unique alphabet which was developed from an ancient script called Asomtavruli around the 5th century AD. The alphabet consists of 33 letters with seven vowels and 26 consonants. Georgian has three distinct dialects: Imeretian, Rachan-Laz and Svaneti which are mutually intelligible but have some differences in pronunciation and vocabulary. The language is highly inflected with complex verb conjugations that can be difficult for learners to master; however it does not have gender or grammatical cases like other Indo-European languages do.
