This easy-to-use Nepalese language course was developed for Arlene’s Himalayan Trekking Course at U.C. Berkeley by Usha Jain, Minu Singh, and Arlene Blum.  It consists of three hours of audio instruction accompanied by a written text.  Learning some Nepalese before your trip shows your respect for the people and culture of this ancient Himalayan country.

This course has been adopted by the US Department of State to train those working in Nepal:
“This course is especially good for people who have difficulty learning languages. Using these CDs, the students start speaking Nepali right away.” —Nepali Language Instructor, US Department of State
