There are several references on the internet to this beginners’ course for the study of Nepali. The book is available for purchase at a nominal price from Cornell University and is available for free download in PDF format, apparently authorized, from numerable websites. Audio recordings were prepared to accompany the course book. Member electronicmonk, who apparently enjoyed working with the book, reported that the link to the recordings on the Cornell University website has been deactivated. I made several unsuccessful attempts at locating the recordings. Perhaps someone could assist? UPDATE: Daristini kindly posted the following advice: "The audio to the Cornell University book "Nepali: A Beginner's Primer Conversation and Grammar" can, at least currently, be downloaded here: https://travelandcommunication.com/nepali-language-learning-pack-updated-library/02%20Nepali%20A%20Beginner's%20Primer%20Conversation%20and%20Grammar%20Audio.rar

It appears Cornell University's Nepali: A Beginner's Primer Conversation and Grammar course was at one time posted publicly in web page format on their website. This web based version includes the audio and is available through the Internet Archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20170927171220/http://lrc.cornell.edu/nepali/online/
