      I have been using this for 5 weeks and have learned a lot. It is great to pop in the ear buds or plug into the stereo while driving. Good preparation for things to come.

        Comments about Pashto Phase 1, Units 1-30:

        This is by far the best and quickest way to become conversational in a foreign language that there is available. The program does not teach through reading and writing, it just teaches through listening and speaking. You will be amazed at the progress you will make. At the end of the first lesson I was already able to understand a full conversation in Pashto. I am recommending this to all of my Soldiers!

          I use Pimsleur's langauge lessons to help make me a more valuable employee and expand my skillset. More importantly, I have a family member who will soon be sent to Afghanistan and it gives me great pleasure to help teach some words and expressions. You must be motivated to do this course, if you have that, you will be well rewarded.

            Comments about Pashto Phase 1, Units 1-30:

            I use this product on the computer, and it exceeded my expectations. I'm typically not a fan of audio-only courses, but this program is solid. I love the fact that the words covered are actually used in everyday conversation, and that the strange Pashto word order is carefully dissected.
            However, I dislike the fact that some words are broken apart BACKWARDS. I like to e able to slowly pronounce a word, just... Forward.

            Overall, very nice.
