Dr. Pimsleur's extremely accessible and successful program teaches you language in the same way a native speaker would-through exposure to everyday, normal conversations. Instead of chopping up a foreign language into a little bit of grammar and a dash of vocabulary, he presents the entire language course as a complete whole. And rather than memorizing repetitive drills that only dull learning, his "input/output" system of learning actually challenges your brain through teaching information, and asking you to recall what you've learned.
Basic Hindi will provide you with the vocabulary and language tools to learn the basics of a foreign language quickly and easily. You can listen anywhere, from in the car to jogging, while the audio-only instruction teaches you spoken language organically. 30 minute lessons, with both grammar and vocabulary, are designed to optimize the amount of language that can be learned in one sitting. The Basic Pimsleur Program is comprised of the first 10 lessons in the Pimsleur Comprehensive Level 1 course.
