The Pimsleur® Method has worked for millions all over the world. Totally portable; simple to use; Pimsleur works so you don't have to. Hindi Phase 1, Unit 1 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Hindi.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
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!
"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!
"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.
