This language learning resource is designed to help learners acquire conversational ability in Afghan Pashto. Each Lesson includes dialogues, pronunciation drills and sections on grammar, augmented by exercises, comprehension drills, vocabulary lists, and proverbs. All the material is presented in Pashto script and easy-to-use phonetics with English explanations. This course is designed to provide the basis for an intensive language learning program for students, relief and development workers and agencies assisting in the reconstruction of Afghanistan, or working with Afghans in other countries.
The book will be of special interest to development agencies and NGOs, and their international sponsors, as well as to universities offering a Pashto Language Course as a part of their Near and Middle Eastern Studies or Iranian Languages Programs.
The third edition (2007) has been prepared with the addition of an English Vocabulary Index, and a General Index to assist students.
