Course Introduction

This course provides beginning Pashto learners with a wide selection of materials and task-oriented, communicative activities that facilitate the development of speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Pashto. Because the course is designed for beginners, it does not presume any previous knowledge of written or spoken Pashto.

Course Goals

The aim of this course is to provide students with an introductory high to intermediate low knowledge of the Pashto language, as it is spoken and written today in Afghanistan as well as the culture of the Afghans. The spoken language of educated native speakers, as well as the contemporary literary language as reflected in the media, will be emphasized throughout.

Module Topics Include

  • Getting Started
  • Module 1: An Introduction to Pashto
  • Module 2: Introducing Yourself to Others
