About the Punjabi Language

  • Punjabi is an Indo-Aryan language of the Indo-European language family.  It is unique for being the only tonal language in this family. 
  • There are ten Punjabi dialects which are mostly mutually intelligible.  This course teaches the Eastern Punjabi dialect as spoken in India.
  • Punjabi is spoken by approximately 110-112 million people world-wide. 
  • It is an official language in the Indian states of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, and is also spoken elsewhere in northwestern India.  Although not considered an offical language in Pakistan, it is spoken by the majority in the Pakistani province of Punjab. 
  • It is also spoken by expatriate communities in Bangladesh, Canada, Fiji, Kenya, Libya, Malaysia (Peninsular), Mauritius, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States.  In Canada, Punjabi is thought to be the sixth most frequently spoken language.

    Comments about Punjabi Phase 1, Unit 16-20:

    I listen to it while driving to work and commuting various places. What I learn really stays with me. After just a few times of listening and practicing the various phrases, I could already use some of what I learned in actual conversation. My one and only thing that I don't like is that a lot of the vocabulary is geared toward travelers. I'm sure that I will use what I'm learning someday, but for now I am more in need of prases that would be used in normal everyday conversation. Really though....I can't say enogh good about this program. It works and it's easy!

      I love the Pimsleur Punjabi program. The lessons are a perfect length. I can always use them even on a busy day. They never feel too overwhelming. I travel a lot during the week and can use them in the car.
