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).

Namaste Dosti - Lesson 8

Namaste Dosti,
we finally finished lesson 8. Sorry about the long wait. Does it count as excuse that I just broke my arm? So typing and editing is taking a bit longer.
Anyway, in this podcast we talk about good resolutions and time units. We have a dialog about a visit to the movie theater.
Our Bollywood song is Do Pal from the movie Veer Zaara.
We hope you enjoy it!

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!
