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.

All that you need to read, write and speak Pashto

August 21, 2007

I created this blog a few months ago to provide information about learning Pashto. This effort immensely appreciated which gave me courage to keep it updated and do something more. Some friends sent emails and some supported my efforts. I am thankful to all of you.

Some days ago, a Canadian friend donated domain and hosting for a website which is under strong construction this time. We are working to provide all that you need to read write and speak Pashto. You can visit the site here.

During our work on the site, it will be good to hear from you to know what should you think be placed on the site. Your suggestions and comments mean a lot to us.

Availability of Pashto books

August 2, 2007

Books are the main and the most important source of learning a language. Unfortunately, when I searched for Pashto books, only a few were available on some Pashto websites like tolafghan and benawa.

In this situation, the learners and readers of the Pashto language in European, Arab and other countries might face problems getting Pashto books. So I thought we should try to solve this problem.

An idea is that an online library will be created with the help of donations we receive, on which we will upload thousands of Pashto books, magazines and research papers on various subjects.

In the mean time, if you need a Pashto book, provide us your mailing address and shipment expenses, we will send it to you.

Learners and readers are welcomed for any kind of help in this regard.


Love in Pashto

July 26, 2007

Everyday I check Blog Stats of LEARN PASHTO, I find searches like these:

Love words in Pashto
Love phrases in Pashto
Love conversation in Pashto
How to say ‘I love you’ in Pashto

So I thought to write something about this word.

As I have said in a previous post that every language had some good-hearing and attractive words, مينه (love) is the most used and favorite word of Pashto.

Some of the uses and expressions are as following:

زه د خپل مور او پلار سره ډېره مينه لرم
I love my parents

نن سبا رښتينې مينه موندل گران دي
It is difficult to find true love nowadays

مينه د نړۍ تر ټولو ستره ډالۍ ده
Love is world’s biggest gift

په انگليسي کې څنګه وايي چې ” تا سره مينه کوم”؟
How to say ‘I love you’ in English?

افغانان مينه ناک خلک دي
Afghans are loving people

And following are a few Pashto tappas mentioning love:

مينه په تلو راتلو زياتېږي
کله راځه کله به زه درځمه ميينه

مينې دې داسې لېونى کړم
چې لېوني راڅخه غواړي امانونه

مينه له اوره کمه نه ده
چې په لمبو شي عالمونه سوځوينه
