Learn Pashto Writing and Speaking

As a language learner need so much and different resources to learn fleunt writing and speaking, unfortunately, there is a lack of these much resources on the internet to learn Pashto. Some websites and softwares are available as I have written about in my previous posts, yet a learner, beginner and advance level, needs real practice.

I have started to teach Pashto through regular lessons by email, chat on skype and  phone conversations for low fees. For those who want to improve their reading and writing skill want to practice their speaking skills can contact anytime.

Also contact for translating books, phmaplets, documents, ads, etc from English into Pashto and Urdu and vice versa. And other information on Pashto, Pashtoons, Pashto books and Pashto literature.

For more details please contact on ahhairan@gmail.com

    Hello! and Welcome to this great site i love pashto but the prob is that i have spend my whol life in punjab and now i can only speek urdu.

    • haris says:

      Mr.Ajab khan this is the worst comment ive seen so far. i live my whole life in punjab even in lower punjab but my parents always spoke pushto with us and we never forgot our language. but if you try you can still learn it anyway.
      the bottom line is…its never too late ;).

  3. Iddy says:

    Truth Escapes Satans Grip

    I had a dream.
    I saw satan swimming slowly, languorously, smiling,
    wafting down a river of blood.
    More and more as he spread his blood drenched arms
    across each bank, people murdered themselves
    and murdered their neighbors.
    Their blood poured out filling the river deeper and deeper,
    and satan patiently, willfully, joyfully
    screeched a hideous cry of encouragement.
    The unwitting souls on the riverbank, stood
    with their eyes firmly fixed on the heavens
    spoke the name of God,
    then committed self-murder,
    and satans fingers, dripping blood, dragged their souls
    into his hell bound torrent.
    Occasionally a bright beam of truth
    would shine upon one of the souls on the riverbank
    and they would simply walk away.
    And satan thrashed and screamed each time
    as another soul escaped his grip.

    Could someone translate this into Pashto?
    Through Grace Peace

    د پښتو ابېڅو پېژندنه او کارونه
    Knowing the Pashto Alphabetes and its Use.

    د پښتو ابېڅې (الفبا) ټول ټال ۴۴ ابېڅې دي او ليکدود ېې له عربي ابېڅو په بڼه رامنځته شوی او ليک او لوست ېې هم لکه د عربي پشان له ښي اړخ نه پيلېږي .
    The pashto Alphabetes are totaly 44 alphabetes and its fonts are of arabic style and could be read and written from the right side to to left as arabic.

    د پښتو ابېڅې (الفبا) پدې ډول دي .
    The Pashto Alphabetes are as this :
    ا ، ب ، پ ، ت ، ټ ، ث ، ج ، چ ، ځ ، څ ، ح ، خ ، د ، ډ ، ذ ، ر ، ز ، ژ ، ږ ، ړ ، س ، ش ، ښ ، ص ، ض ، ط ، ظ ، ع ، غ ، ف ، ق ، ک ، ګ ، ل ، م ، ن ، ڼ ، ه ، و ، ی ، ئ ، ې ، ي ، ۍ .
    Alef ; Bay ; Pay ; Thay; TTay (hard sound) ; Ce (SAY) ; Jeem ; Che (Chay) ; Dze (ZZay); Tse (tssy); Hhay ; Khay (xche); Daal; Ddaal (hard sound) ; Zaal ; Ray; Zay ; Zhay (a sound which is found in french and you combine your teeth and your toungue’s middle part meet the upper jaw ); Gay ; Rray (hard sound , found in Indian language its sound comes from when you take your toungue’s peak turn it towards back side of you upper jaw) ; Cin (Seen) ; Sheen ; Xeen( Kheen; a sound which comes when you press or bite the right and left sides of your toungue ); Swath (Swat) ; Dwath (Dwat); Thoi (Toi) ; Zoi ; Aiyn (Ayn) ( an arabic sound comming out from a throut) ; Ghain(Ghayn) (an arabic sound comes from open mouth without touch you tongue (sound of crow) ); Fay; Qqaaf (an arabic soun pushing your back part of toungue backwards and making sound) ; Kaaf; Gaaf(Gaph); Laam; Meem; Noon ; Noorn(its original pashto sound , you can make it by first joining your toungue’s peake with upper jaw and at last turning your toungue ’s peak backward) ; Hay; Wow; Yea ; Aie ; Ay; E ; Ei (french sound e with an apostrof on head).

    Joining the alphabetes to make a word.
    Alef +Cin(seen)+Laam+Alef+Meem ( its important to think about the sounds not about the names written structure) for example => AY + ECH+EM+EE+DE
    Now from that form of the combination we get a word (AHMED) .
    SO its important to thik about the sounds more here to not become confuse.
    Now start with Pashto alphabetes and join them making the words.
    Alef +Cin(seen)+Laam+Alef+Meem ( ا+ س+ ل + ا+ م )
    ASALAM ( Hello/Hei ) = اسلام
    Zay +Hay+ ( ZA ) (I / Iam) = ( ز+ ه ) ، زه

    Now you can continue making words from the following alphabetes:

    ا ، ب ، پ ، ت ، ټ ، ث ، ج ، چ ، ځ ، څ ، ح ، خ ، د ، ډ ، ذ ، ر ، ز ، ژ ، ږ ، ړ ، س ، ش ، ښ ، ص ، ض ، ط ، ظ ، ع ، غ ، ف ، ق ، ک ، ګ ، ل ، م ، ن ، ڼ ، ه ، و ، ی ، ئ ، ې ، ي ، ۍ .

  16. AMB says:

    try to analyse these words and place it in divided structural form like in above lessons.
    for example )=> Happy = KHwaXch (خوښ)(Khwakh), to analyse this adjective (word) we have to follow the rule from above: KHwaXch(Khwakh) = KHAY+WOW+XEEN(XCHEEN)= KHWAKH
    NOW : analyse these words to practice more and more:
    Play = لوبه = Loba
    Eat = وخوره = Wokhra
    Come = راشه = Rasha
    Go = لاړشه / ځه = Za / Larrsha
    You = ته = Teh
    I = زه = Za
    He = هغه = Hagha
    She = هغه = Hagha
    (to be noted that since Pashto language is a bitt exclusive in its structure and its grammer is bitt different than the common grammers of the english language or maybe of the other langauges so is most semilar to the French and with some of scandinavian langauges. here as you see both for HE/SHE I used (HAGHA) which refers to the pronounes, but when you introduce some one to other like )=> HE IS A BOY )=> HAGHA YAW HALIK DA ; SHE IS A GIRL )=> HAGHA YAWA JANAI DA : but when we come to the possisive form of pronoun then the form of the prounoun changes and in pashto it should be appointed or should be used like difinite artcle to be more clear , like for example )=> SHE ATE FOOD = HAGHAY KHWARRA WOKHWARRE. you see here we used instead HAGHA (HAGHAY). for masculan we dont change the form.
    I hope you get this lessin seriousely and learn from it as iam not a teacher maybe it would have some irrelevant form of explanations.

    what is a Past Tense?
    A past tense is a tense , sequience , circumstances or situation which people deal in about the past , about the things or speachs which is already done.
    in pashto language it is like this..
    تېرمهال ، دا هاغه مهال ،وخت ، حالت بيانوي چې څه تېر شوي وي ، څه باندې وخت تېر شوی وي ، د غورو (خبرو) او کړو وړو چې مهال ېې تېر وي څېړل کېږي. لکه د بېلګې په توګه ..

    احمد اوبه وڅکښلې (وڅښلې) ـ AHMED DRUNK WATER
    Ate = وخواړه ، وخوړل wokhware / wokhwaral
    Spoke = وغږېده ، وغږېد woghaged / woghagede
    Talked = خبرې وکړې ، وغږېده، وغږېد khabre wokre , woghageda , woghagede
    Told = وې وېل ، wewel
    Kept = وې ساته ، وېساته ، خوندي ېې کړ wesate , khwandee ye kar
    Played = ولوبېد wolobed
    Slept = ويده شو ،weede sho
    Burnt = وسوځېد ، وسو woswadzed , woso.

    here are some i hope there is no mistakes in there , but if there is please inform me . best of luck

    dear teacher alaikom salam.thank you for new lesson.

  30. AMB says:

    Dear Saieda Saadaat salamona ..
    I realy خوښوموم that somebody call me a teacher , however iam a student my self. by the way iam also glad that these small lessons can help you and help others.

    let me explain to you some Parts of speach..

    there are more parts of speach but here i will just explain some to you.

    1) Noun = نوم = Noom
    2) Pronoun = نومځر = Nomzar
    3) Verb = فعل = Fail
    4) Adverb = قيد = Qaid
    5) Infinitive = مصدر، مرستيال توري = Masdar, rastYalTorai

    6) Preposition = ربط توری = Rabt Torai
    7) Adjective = ستاينوم، صفت = StaiNoom, Sefat

    8) Artcle = تړنګنوم = TarangNoom
    9)Conjunction = وصل توری، نښلولو توری = Wasl Torai, Naxkhlawolo Torai

    اوس به ېې تاسو ته تشريح کړم

    Now I will explain these one by one to you..
    for today you have to learn the names above and its pronunciations , next time I will go through the explainition of each part of speach..
    Here is about the )=>

    Noun = نوم

    په پښتو کې ورته نوم وايوو. نوم د يو څيز ، يا کس د پېژندلو لپاره کارېږي . د بېلګې په توګه
    زمری ، افغان، اوسلو، مڼه، صوفيه ، کمپيوټر .. او داسې نور.
    په نومونو کې دوه ډوله نومونه لرو چې ورته عام نوم (اسم عام) او ځانګړی نوم (اسم خاص ) وايي .
    عام نوم … دا داسې نوم ته وايي چې د عامو څيزونو ، ځايونو ، او کسانو د پېژندلولپاره يو شانتې وي ، لکه
    د بېلګې په توګه ..ښار، ملک، وطن، کلی، هلک ، نجلۍ ، څيز ، شی، شيان ، خواړه، او داسې نور..
    ځانګړی نوم … دا داسې نوم دی چې د کس، ځای او څيز ځانګړتيا پکې ښکاری او يوازې د هغه کس، ځای، يا څیز نوم وي .
    د بېلګې په توګه… احمد، کابل، افغانستان، بنز، اوباما، برلين، ملالۍ ، شامي کباب، بادرنګ، توش قلم… او داسې نور

    Noun is called NOOM in Pashto , and it derives the name of a person, Place and things , for example:
    Zmarai, Afghan, Oslo, Apple, Sofia , Computer and etc..

    په لاندې جملو کې نوم په وپېژنۍ او په نخښه ېې کړۍ .
    In the following sentences try to know and appoint the Noom (noun).

    دا ګېند د زمري دی

    = DAA GAYND DE ZMAREE DAI = ( This is Zmarai’s Ball)

    مڼه خوندوره ده
    = MANRA KHWANDAWORA DA = (An Apple is delicious)

    زه يو کمپيوټر لرم
    = ZA YAW COMPUTER LAREM = (I have one Computer)

    د نجلۍ نوم صوفيه ده
    =DE JALAY NOOM Sofia DA=(The name of a girl is Sofia )

    د ناروې پلازمېنه اوسلو ده =DE NARWAY PLAZMENA Oslo DA =(The Capitalof Norway is Oslo)

    دئ افغان دی
    = DAI AFGHAN DAY = (He is an Afghan)

    (Daa Gaynd De Zmaree Day ) > In this sentence as you see we have changed the name (ZMARAI) into (ZMAREE) , here its because in Pashto the noun changes when it comes to the belongings, like when we say
    (THIS BALL IS BELONGING TO ZMARAI) in english just we add the extra conjunction word (belonging) or we add apostroph , but in Pashto we have to change the Name’s format and appoint it to the sepcific person.

    (DAA GAYND DE ZMAREE DAY ) its english translation
    but as we see in english its appointed by apostrophe and in the same manner in pashto it is possessively added (EE ي) to the name (ZMARAI) .

  31. saieda saadaat says:

    دا مرغه د احمدي دي(daa morgha de ahmadee day)
    دا ماشوم د زمري دي(daa mashom de zmaree day)
    dear teacher i have a question.why some times we should say (day)&some times say (da)?
    ديره مننه معلم و برادر عزيز

  34. AMB says:

    First let me explain the word pronoun: Pronoun is a short cut of noun or a word which is used instead of noun. For example:

    Common sentences pronoun based sentences

    Zmarai goes to Kabul = He goes to Kabul

    In the above sentence , HE is used instead Zmarai which means that is a Pronoun for the name of Zmarai.

    In Pashto Language We have five basic pronouns which some are sub divided into different indicative pronouns .
    first of all thank you for your attention I will answer your question here then will explain each pronoun and will give an example as well.

    Regarding your question ,
    why we use DAY دې ? and where? And why we use DE د and where?
    Why we use DAY دې ??
    ولې په پښتو کې موږ (دې ) کاروو او چېرته؟

    دې ٬ په پښتو کې د اضافه منفصل ضمير يا تړننومځر په نوم يادېږي ، دا اضافه تړن نومځر ځکه په پښتو کې کارېږي چې د پښتو ژبې دجلمو په کارونه کې موږ ته اضافي مرسته راکوي . د ٬دې ٬ کارونه په يوې جملې کې د پښتو ژبې ځانګړتيا ښکاره کوي ، او دا د مخاطب لورې موضوع ته زموږ پام اړوي. همداسې دا دوه ډوله بېلو جملو کې کارېږي . يوه ډول جمله کې د مفرد مونث (ښځينه) نژدې لورې اشاره ورګرځوي ، بل ډول جمله کې لکه د اضافي تړنې په څېر د موضوع اصل اړخ ته اشاره ورګرځوي چې په هغې کې هم د اضافي مفرد مونث يا مذکر نژدې لورې ته اشاره ده او د پښتو ژبې د جوړښت په تړاؤ ېې همداسې طريقه ده چې هرڅه مونث يا مذکر لري او د جملې په اساس بېلېږي .

    We use DAY(دې as an extra determiner in a phrase or a sentence which relates to the pronoun part of speach , it is a system which can be found in every language grammer but in its own way or type, every Noun is defined as masculine and feminine , and in pashto language everything you mention the pronouns should be determined by its specific gender. In this case this (DAY دې ) is used as a determiner and extra determiner in two different sentences , one is used for a near determention of singular feminine word (her/her’s) and another is used as possessive determiner to the sentence .

    For example follow the sentences below..
    لکه د بېلګې په توګه …

    (here i will analyse the sentence for you to understand better)

    ژوندی دې وي = ZHWANDAI DAY WEE = MAY IT LIVE

    ژوندی + دې وي + افغان Object +determines the subject to object + subject

    دې ته ما ووېل = ( DAY TA MAA WOOWEL)= I TOLD HER
    Here (DAY = دې ) is personal pronoun without apostroph (HER).

    تل دې وي افغانستان =( TEL DE WEE AFGHANISTAN)= Long Live Afghanistan

    Again here its a determiner which appoints towards the Noun =Afghanistan

    Now Why we Use DE = د ? This is because it joins and complete a sentence,
    This term is used mainly as an article its english is ( a , it, an, The ), but some times it is used conjoined with pronoun which is called the conjoined nknown pronoun( it can be appointed only by finger) .
    For example =
    د افغانستان بانک = DE AFGHANISTAN BANK = The Bank of Afghanistan
    Here DE = THE . it is determined by the article before noun.
    د دغه کار دی = DE DAGHA KAAR DAI =It is his work ( we dont know whose? , but you can appoint towards and here its mentioned towards near person).

    ستا د سترګو بلا واخلم = STA DE STARGO BALA WAKHLAM = I adore your eyes (I maya dore your eyes)

    So here we used the DE as article too bu tits typically pashto i didnt fined english explaination for it but , you can just assume it as a helper to join word to complete a sentence.

    I hope you understand this lesson too , i will come up with rest of the pronouns and examples , this month i have some exams so i may not be able to make the lessons soon. Inshallah later sometimes if we lived.

  35. AMB says:

    now regarding your sentences that you made , should say thats very well, but remains some small thing let me correct some of them .

    1)da kalee da malalee day )its a bitt wrong in the last form, because you mentione plurel then again finished it with a singular verb.
    right form is here => Daa Kaalee De Malalai dee =
    ( Always remember when you begin with singular masculin form of sentence then finish it with singular musculine verb , Day دی( its masculine) ,
    ده DA = Its a feminine singular verb.
    so you should say ( Daa Kaalee De Malalai dee ) .
    2) the second one is perfect, but try to evoid دي و instead write دی , Daa maargha (morgha) de Ahmadee day. (this is Ahmadee’s bird). دي is used in plurel form.
    3) this is also fine just you sshould learn the difference between singular form and plural and masculine noun and feminine one.
    ok res is fine , also it seems you have no pashto keyboard so you need to install from some afghan websites. good luck

    Ways to write and read Pashto

    1) First of all you have to understand and know the Alphabetes of the language

    2) Secondly you have to find the proper tense at the proper time and use them in a proper sentences

    3) Thirdly you have to have a note book where you can note some of them main points and notice the informations from it

    4) The most important after understanding is to begin communications and get into speaking and you have to be able to analyse the different times and tenses.

    i want to learn pashtoo language.ur site is good but i’m atanding at zero point of pashtoo language. may learn this language with help of you.

    • ZEE says:

      I can help you with Pashto 🙂 It is very easy.

      • M.K. says:

        Can you recommend a good dictionary that shows the word in Pashto script, with an English definition? A transliteration for pronunciation would be helpful but is not required. My problem is that phrase books don’t contain the pashto script. On line dictionaries are incomplete or limited in the number of words they contain. I can’t learn new words if I don’t know what they mean in English and how to spell them correctly in Pashto.

        I appreciate any help or information.

  49. shoaib says:

    please will anyone teach to speak in pushto.e-mail me shoaib_200701@yahoo.co.in

  50. AMB says:

    asalam alaikom everyone, Hello to all.
    regarding the pronunciation of the words you should ask the admin of this website who is a reporter himself and have the opportunity to provide you the audio listnings . I would have done that but I dont know where to put them and how to serve them to you all.
    mr. Shoaib aslaam alaikom from my side too .. If you want to learn the speaking form of the language you have to be in contacts with the people whose language is pashto and try to hear the different pashto radio or tv programmes . especialy try to read and listen to the news and make the questions and ask.
    here i can only provide you an explainations , discreptions of the grammer and can come up with my own way teachings , iam not any professional teacher neither did I teach anyone online , its my own interests as a hobby that i try to provide some basic informations regarding Pashto language. so if you have any question you can only put it here and ask inshallah i will be answering that to you soon or later . iam busy with some works so sometimes it takes a long while answering you all here so sorry for that inconviniency.

      Salam Aleikum!

      I am very interested in learning different language’s. And since pashto is very cute language and not to much hard to learn, and my lovely boyfriend is pashto speaker. So then i wanted to learn pashto 4 him.

      I can ask him to learn me, and of course he will. He already learned me some words, but i want to suprise him one day, by talking to him. Then he will get shocked that i just talk pashto, from where i have learned?

      So if anyone is interested to help me, just by some words. Then send me a Mail on: Mirapedersen@live.no .. There i have a mail with some words i want you to translate for me to pashto.. Thanks! 🙂

    • Babygirl says:

      Oh i’m sorry, i posted the message as an reply 2 you.

      Zam ta sara dera mena kom = I LOVE YOU..

      Isn’t that right? My boyfriend says it like this: Za ta sara meena kawoum.. So as you see it was almost the same, so i guess it have the same meaning just in annother dialect! 🙂

    د پښتو ژبې د لیکنې د زده کړې لپاره تاسو ته پکار ده چې د ژبې بنسټيزه تګلاره زده کړۍ او د بنسټ پيل ېې د پنځو ېې ګانو نه پیلېږي.

    The basic rule to learn how to write and make sentences in Pashto language, First you have to follow its five last alphabetes and learn tthem basicaly with their pronunciations .

    د بېلګې په توګه
    For Example:

    ی .. سړی، غويی ، کودی، لمسی، زوی، پاتی او داسې نور

    Its pronounciation is semilar to (ai)sound of
    english version

    ې .. خوږې، لوبې ، ښې، ژاؤلې، داسې، او نور.

    Its pronunciation is semilar to the sound (ay)of english .

    ي.. خوري، څښي، ځي، راځي، او داسې نور.

    Its pronunciation is semilar to the sound (ee) of English

    ئ ..ښوونکئ، زده کوونکئ، دئ ، خوريئ ،

    Its pronunciation is semilar to the sounds conjoined by (y) of English

    ۍ .. ځۍ، نجلۍ، ډوډۍ، ګاډۍ، او داسې نور.

    Its pronunciation is semilar to the sounds conjoined by (ei) of english.
