Punjabi Primer - Scientifically designed for easy learning by Dr. Gurbakhsh Singh - Published by The Kalidhar Trust, Gurdwara Baru Sahib, Himachal Pradesh, India From the Preface: "Younger people may find this very helpful for learning to read Gurmukhi. It is based on the conversion method of learning Punjabi. According to this method, one learns to convert the Punjabi alphabet and vowels into corresponding English forms, the use of which the student already knows. It, therefore, enables a person to read Panjabi in about two weeks time. Learning by this technique becomes interesting because one starts reading and writing words the very first day."
