I am planning to start online Pashto courses for beginners and advanced learners. For more details and registration please read Learning Pashto Online.
Here is a series of new Pashto lessons: http://www.hadihairan.com/2011/06/learn-pashto-introduction.html
Learning Pashto is as learning any language of the world: the learners have to have an interest in the language and its culture, willingness to learn and access to resources they need. As the Pashto language has never enjoyed patronage of any emperor or any powerful and independent state throughout history, but had been a target of the regional powers until late, and has managed to survive through continuous attempts against its existence, there are not as much learning resources available for it as for the other languages of the world. Yet enough books of grammar, about the usage of the language, and dictionaries from Pashto to other languages and vice versa have been written and printed and are available today that can help those who are keen to achieve their goals.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are publishing a number of Pashto books for which we need the help from people who love the Pashto language and want to promote knowledge in Afghanistan. The books include:
- Dictionaries and language books
- Books for children
- Poetry collections
- Stories (novels, short stories)
- Translations from other languages
Every kind of support and contribution is welcomed. Contact: email@example.com
Thanks in advance.
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.
