    I've more than half way through the Punjabi and Hindi versions. These are my first foray into Indian languages and I'm very impressed with the series.

    The Pimsleur course takes a slightly different approach to language learning. The rate of progress with these lessons is slow compared to the typical approach of grammar + vocabulary. But it excels tremendously at developing your inner ear to hear the language and at making conversation second nature rather than a purely mechanical affair. If you don't understand what I mean by this let me give an example: I studied Spanish in school for 6 years, had a huge vocabulary but couldn't understand a word from a native speaker and most definitely couldn't converse. When I went to India recently, having done maybe 1/3 of the Punjabi series, I couldn't exactly have a deep conversation as my vocab was extremely limited BUT whenever I heard someone speaking with the tools I'd learned, my ear immediately picked it up. Also I could distinguish individual words even though I didn't know them. It was exciting given how little I knew!

    The content is great - it makes you think on your toes and it's not condescending or overly simplistic or anything like that. The technical production is top notch with different native speakers for male/female. The narrator is American English - all very clear and intelligible.
