In my quest to learn Hindi and Urdu to fluency, I have used many different textbooks. But both the Teach Yourself Hindi and the Teach Yourself Urdu are two of the best I have used for these languages. This book is an outstanding introduction to the Urdu language. Before starting I would recommend "Teach Yourself Urdu Script" before starring this, although this also teaches the script, the script book is a lot clearer and teaches actually how to write the script. This textbook has a dialogue in ...more

Highly recommended to anyone with no hobbies, no family, and a curious desire to learn a South Asian language.

If you are a beginner learning Urdu, this is the book to get. Though I am lucky that I have an Urdu-speaking husband and spend time in Pakistan and with Pakistani relatives, this book will give you 'the ground-work', the vocabulary, the grammar.

good book to grab urdu. i learned from this book for only 2 weeks before practicing in nepal, india, and pakistan. i was overwhelmed how i could survive with just basic knowledge from this book, then eventually i learned deeper from the conversation with the locals. i just wished there would be more complicated grammar explanation, as after finishing the last chapter i still couldnt make myself understood when making complicated sentences.

The best godamn reference book on urdu I have found yet. Explains the important aspects of urdu grammar in easy to understand, well laid out format with supplemental "conversations" between fictitious characters to see the grammar in usage. HIGHLY recommended for someone starting out with basic grammar and can already read the nasta'liq script (otherwise, you'll flounder). I still use this book to refer back to for clarification!

Good intro but lacking in a methodical introduction to grammar. I think it will continue to be a good reference to look back to as I learn.
