This is such an awesome way to learn a language!

I've never had experience with hindi before but I can understand and speak the words from the first lesson already!

Learning to speak Hindi in a fun and easy way!!!

Pimsleur's language programs are an excellent way for a beginner to dip their toe , so to speak, into learning a wonderful new foreign language. With my family and I preparing to visit India the later part of this year, the Pimsleur's learning method really makes practicing and learning Hindi fun and exciting for us!!!!

For those interested in learning Hindi, I highly recommend giving this title a try...

Introduction not content

This is the course introduction that is generic to the method and not Hindi itself. No content here.

Encourage by this tutorial

I have struggled to learn Bengali for many years. I decided to move onto Hindi since there are more learning tools available and many of my friends and family speak Hindi in addition to English and their native language. I've enjoyed this so far and purchased the next set. Let's hope I can keep up with dinner parties and Bollywood movies soon.

Dives straight in!

For me there is nothing worse than a really waffly book with far more explanation in English than the language you are learning.

Chapter 2 is a half hour lesson which is just brilliant! It starts off demonstrating a conversation in Hindi which you think crikey how long will it take for me to understand that? Weeks? Months? Years?

The sentence components are broken down so well that within 15 minutes I was really getting the hang of it!

I look forward to phase 2 & hopefully future phases will be released on Audible!

Great start to learning how Hindi works

Good first lesson in Hindi and asking if the other person knows Hindi. You learn several questions and responses.
