Difficult to follow in audio
The narrator is great and one's accent could really develop by copying her. However, the frustrating thing is that just after telling you how to say something, the script goes onto say "an ALTERNATIVE way to say the same thing is...". This just makes the programme incredibly difficult to follow - just as you've begun to memorise how to say one phrase your brain is scrambled by learning a similar but different phrase. For an English speaker, that might work with another European language, based on similar Latin or Greek words, but given that Hindi is so different, it just doesn't work. Maybe listening to this with the written text in front of you would work better but as it is, this is just too complicated for an audio-only 'get by in' product.
I would cut all the 'an alternative way of saying this is...' sections.
