    Any good tips on re-learning Punjabi and Urdu if you've forgotten?

    Basically I speak Punjabi like some gora pretending to be Punjabi and I can't speak Urdu at all! I really want to go to Pakistan and do some volunteer work in a years time, and need to be able to speak passable Urdu at least. Learning Punjabi is just so my cousins won't laugh at me!

    I can understand Punjabi perfectly and quite a bit of Urdu but I struggle sometimes understanding Urdu conversation on political news shows etc

    It's really weird I grew up in England but till I was 6 years old I could only speak fluent Punjabi because that's all my parents spoke to me like I couldn't speak English at all, then slowly I began to speak English and lost my Punjabi...

    My parents still speak Punjabi to me and my brothers/sister but we always reply in English, its just a habit. I think picking up Punjabi will probably be easier than learning Urdu because I've never spoken it.

    Does anyone have any tips on learning the two languages, I really really want to relearn these languages, I know my parents are disappointed that we forgot how to speak Punjabi and never learnt Urdu in the first place ?

    Sit in a gathering of punjabi speakers and listen what they say and try to memorize/use it. It will take time but soon u'll be able to speak.
