Comments about Pashto Phase 1, Unit 26-30:
I listen to the downloads during my work commute. I was quickly able to communicate with native speakers, as the curriculum is geared towards common everyday speech. I understand the grammatical structure and nuances in ways I couldn't gave with just textbook learning. I'm very happy with the product and hope to see Pashto III come out soon.
