The main problem with this course is simple, far too little content. This leads to two consequences:
a. the grammar descriptions are too short. Colloquial courses for almost all European languages include a complete overview of the main grammatical points (of course not always in great detail, but still) but this course gives offers very little for those interested in Urdu.
b. the vocabulary is a joke. For most other Colloquial courses, the vocabulary you learn in the course is somewhere around 1400-1600 words. Many courses include over 2000 words (Colloquial Italian, Icelandic, Albanian, Czech, Russian, Spanish of Latin America and probably others as well). This course, in sharp contrast, doesn't even include 800 words, and that's far too little for a course calling itself a "complete" language course.
So only half of the vocabulary found in other Colloquial courses and hardly any help at all with the grammar. That's not good enough.
I recommend 'Urdu Grammar' by Ruth Laila Schmidt.
