Perfect for sharpening your skills

I grew up in a family that speaks Urdu, so I fully understand but often struggle with conversations and sentence formation. This podcast has helped build my confidence and skills in just a few episodes! My friends and family members have commented positively on my Urdu. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a general foundation in Urdu looking to connect further with their culture. The episodes provide introductions to new words and phrases that I can incorporate into everyday conversation. I write down some of my favorite lines, so I can review and practice later (Kitni dair lagay gi? Sava vs ponay, etc). The shifting guests add variety to each episode, and the host does a great job of switching between casual and formal structure. I hope the host continues to release episodes more regularly!
