    "A must have for anyone who wishes to learn how to read and speak Hindi. It pretty much held my hand as I was just first learning how to write Devanagari script, was very simple and reassuring. The lessons are relatively short and delivered in "bite-sized" portions, which gives you time to take in, review, and practice their content. The only thing is, for the conjuncts, the presentation was much less useful. There were many of them in a small space, no information about how to draw them, not big enough (for me) to see clearly. So I was frustrated at that. But the handwriting samples at the back were great, etc.. - all in all a great investment."

    "Since this is probably the only option out there for self-taught old english, it's going to be pricey. But thankfully I felt this was everything I was hoping for; if I'd taken a university course, it would have cost more and been less fun. "

    "I wanted to learn Icelandic and had this book recommended to me on Amazon. I'm sure the author(s) know plenty about Icelandic language, but reading it was a total chore, and a snoozefest. I barely made it through the first chapter before I was looking for better resources."
