4.0 out of 5 stars Nepali
I bought this to learn how to learn the basic language. It covers everything around the basics and the teaching system is quite good.

1.0 out of 5 stars not for adults visiting Nepal
I was looking to build on 20-year old pidgin Nepali gained in that country, to converse on trek and in villages. What I got was a heap of words the same as English, like hotel and pizza and cola. Plus English foods rather than what you get in Nepal - where are the kinds of sag and momos and so on? And the phrases very quickly included 'where is the train station' and...

This review is from: Talk Now Learn Nepali: Essential Words and Phrases for Absolute Beginners (PC/Mac) (CD-ROM)
I was looking to build on 20-year old pidgin Nepali gained in that country, to converse on trek and in villages. What I got was a heap of words the same as English, like hotel and pizza and cola. Plus English foods rather than what you get in Nepal - where are the kinds of sag and momos and so on? And the phrases very quickly included 'where is the train station' and 'where can I park my car'. I can tell you with my experience over many visits there that you won't be looking for a train anywhere in Nepal and nor are you likely to be driving a car unless you are resident there with an official body, in which case you'll have your own tuition and advice. And several of the Nepalese translations of words like 'bathroom' and 'thank you' needed comment, as is so very well supplied in the brilliant Lonely Planet phrasebook.

And I was seriously annoyed to have grinning Caucasian Americans reading out the words instead of Nepalese. So terribly disappointing, a waste of the considerable time it took to 'optimise' itself for my MAC

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 18 Oct 2011
This review is from: Talk Now Learn Nepali: Essential Words and Phrases for Absolute Beginners (PC/Mac) (CD-ROM)
I have been teaching myself Nepali and was hoping to have some fun interactivity from this CD-ROM. Unfortunately, the vocabularly is very limited and they haven't even bothered to get images of Nepalese people. It's very basic and probably not a great way to learn. I wouldn't recommend it, but time will tell if I'm the only person with this opinion!
