    Comments about Dari Persian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    What a great product. It only takes 30 minutes of my time per day, and as long as I do it, it really works. After only 17 days I was able to have a rudimentary conversation with an Afghan in Dari alone, and at least understand the structure of his response.

    It's a great course. I wish it was longer. I'm able to speak at an intermediate level right now but with more lessons I'm sure I can become fluent.

      Comments about Dari Persian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      The audio material is clear and digestable: not too much new vocabulary in each chapter, which is great. I've been listening to these chapters while walking, on the bus and biking (unfortunaly often disturbed by the noices of traffic) and sometimes in bed to fall asleep. I'm happy with the product (17 chapters of level I by now), though it seems rather concentrated in the needs of expats in Afghanistan, which I'm not and will not be. The recordings are clear and the voices on tape pleasant. It's really useful for me that this material can be used where ever, with nothing other than my ears occupied. However, I'd really appreciate a booklet with all the chapters in writing to help memorize the vocabulary and to check things after listening a new chapter. And I really mean material in old fashioned paper, since for me it's important that this material doesn't require using computer or mobile phone, since I use those enough already at work and free time.

        I listen to the half-hour long program modules every morning during my commute to work. I follow the user guide instructions and have found these instructions to be the key to effectively progress through the lessons.
