In this paper, a model is proposed to recognize speech and language by speech signal for countries like India where many languages are spoken. We have used MFCC and delta-MFCCs as acoustic features. We used a supervised learning technique to train ANN (Artificial neural network) as recognizer. To train this model resilient back propagation algorithm and radial basis function neural network used and results are compared. The ANN model tries to classify the input with respect to a set of words and languages. In this work four Indian languages Hindi, English, Sanskrit and Telugu are used. A multi speaker Speech recognition and language recognizer proposed for these four Indian languages
