Very poor pronunciation and usage

I am a Hindi speaking native of India. From listening to the teacher Meena's accent both in English and Hindi, it seems very probable that she is from Southern India. Hindi is not spoken as a mother-tongue in Southern India. Due to the influence of her own mother-tongue, her Hindi pronunciation is faulty. She is unable to make certain sounds that are required to speak Hindi properly. There are other problems in basic usage... for example, Namaste Dosti does not mean "Hello Friends" as explained in the 2nd podcast. It means "Hello Friendship". If you wanted to say Hello Friends, you would say Namaste Dosto(n) -- the (n) is nasal. Too many deficiencies to really give any credit to the creators of this podcast.

Bad beyond words

I thought that a podcast teaching a language will always be a good idea till I heard this. I come from the hindi speaking region of India with language scholars in my family and I am a native speaker. The podcast makes very elementary mistakes with verbs and tenses (compare the mistakes to this incorrect sentence in english: "I had having a party tomorrow") . The pronounciation is funny and very difficult to understand and it is very clear that they are neither the native speakers, nor have they learnt the language professionally. Anyone who learnt the language would not make these mistakes. I am subscribed to three language podcasts where I am learning the words and constructs. I do not wish anyone learns hindi through this podcast. A complete waste of time.

Sabse Wonderful

I am currently taking a Hindi Language Class at Berlitz and doing the Rosetta Stone program at home and I still think this is the best Hindi Learning resource out there. Many things have been made much clearer and easier to remember with this wonderful series of Podcasts. Thank you so much! Shukriya
