I am planning to start online Pashto courses for beginners and advanced learners. For more details and registration please read Learning Pashto Online.
Some people think that Pashto is a very complicated and hard-to-learn language. The reason behind this perception is a lack of knowledge and inaccessibility to the resources of this ancient yet live and interesting language.
The Pashto Academy of Peshawar University of Peshawar has published a Bilingual Primer, an illustrated book aimed for non-Pashto speakers and foreigners to learn Pashto from.
The beautiful book contains a lot of activity based information for learning the Pashto language. It has made the job easy and quicker.
Another book is Pashto Teacher, written by Prof. Gul Jan Wror in 1990, which is now unavailable in the market but we have made some copies.
The third is a booklet which contains links and information of all Pashto websites and online forums.
The set of these three books is available for those who want to learn English. To order the set, just contact email@example.com.
Pronounced as jens, the word has several meanings.
1) One popular meaning is ‘sex.’
Example: جنسي کيسې (sex stories)
2) It is also used for gender.
Example: د ښځې او نر جنس (male female gender)
3) The third meaning is ‘edible.’ Its plural is: ajnaas.
Example: د غنمو جنس (edible wheat)
4) ‘Alike’ is another meaning.
Example: هر همجنس د خپل همجنس سره جوړېږي (رحمان بابا) (Everyone likes to be with their alike)
The word is originally from Arabic. An entry for this on Wikitionary can be found here.
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.
