Kevin Ziegler commented on Complete Urdu (free resources) from Complete Urdu (free resources): I just started, and it seems like a great resource, but please stop auto play! It's very annoying.
William James commented on Complete Urdu (free resources) from Complete Urdu (free resources): This book is just amazing. It gave me the ability to read Nastaliq script. I know Arabic Naskh Script but I did not know Urdu Nastaliq Script.
