A word to the learner

Welcome to Colloquial Panjabi. The course, as the cover of this book clearly specifies, is a complete language course which aims at helping you learn the colloquial variety of Panjabi. As a complete language course for beginners, Colloquial Panjabi deals with all the four traditionally recognised linguistic skills:

Receptive Productive

Aural-oral Listening Speaking comprehension

Visual Reading Writing comprehension

But, more importantly, it attempts to do something else as well. One of its major objectives is to help the learner take her/his linguistic skills to the level from where she or he is able to take charge of her/his own learning, become her/his own language teacher and attain higher levels without anybody's help.
