Namaste Dosti - Lesson 11
Hi Friends, Hard to believe, but we finished lesson 11! Yes, we are still alive. Not sure if we will continue to do podcasts, as there are so many good resources out there with native speakers. However I'm planning to add more transcripts for the existing podcasts. Anyway, in this episode we talk about family and vacation, and our movie song is Kuch na kaho from the movie of the same title (Stars: Abhishek Bacchan and Ashvariya Rai).

We hope you enjoy it! Link to the podcast. Do Pal - Song lyrics
Namaste Dosti - Lesson 7
Hard to believe, but we finished lesson 7! To our defense for the long wait, the podcast is pretty long and packed with new stuff. We are talking about going to the Garba, we are learning vocabulary about time and new numbers and we have a dialog about a planned vacation. Our Bollywood song comes to you by suggestion of a listener: It is the title song of the 1977 Movie "Hum kisi se kum nahin" - a qawali song. Here is the link to a YouTube clip for the song: Hum kisi se kum nahin Here are the lyrics. Please let us know if you have any comments and suggestions! Here is the link to the podcast.

I find the dialogues very helpful!
Good complementary resource
I hope the producers of this podcast will continue it! It nicely complements my Hindi studies. Cannot be the sole source of learning but definitely helpful as a refresher and review. Please continue making these podcasts!
I hope that all the "experts" writing about how bad this podcast is are out there making better ones of their own. There really isn't that much out there, so ANYTHING is greatly appreciated. Many thanks to those who put in the effort. Sharing is the key!
