Not enough lessons per purchase

The Pimsleur language system is rightly prized for its method of teaching. I’ve tried Pimsleur before and was delighted to see that their courses were available on Audible. My one nit-pick is that each purchase is abbreviated to only 6 lessons, meaning that you need to make multiple purchases to get a reasonably comprehensive course of learning. I know that Pimsleur courses are expensive to buy (getting on for £300 per course) but I would have been happier if there’d been 10 lessons per purchase rather than a measly 5.

Excellent introduction

Like most of Pimsleur’s language courses this is an excellent introduction to a beautiful language. The vocabulary is fairly small but it shows you how to manipulate the words to your advantage. I would readily recommend this course to the complete beginner, and in fact to people who already know some Hindi, because in the matter of pronunciation practice Pimsleur is second to none.

Awesome!!!!

Awesome way to learn and speak the language. I'm bought 5+ of their language learning books and I'm going to keep going because it's a great learning resource. Learning a language has never been so easy!

Save your credits

For 1 credit I can buy a 30 hour long Harry Potter novel or a 2 hour language lesson. I think the whole course should be sold as a unit rather than individual lessons.

Best way to learn Hindi from scratch

I started off learning Hindi from text books. It's nowhere as efficient as this method and without this method I wasn't great at speaking and listening. In one week I'm already improving both my listening and speaking.
