The Pashto Language
Pashto is an Iranian language of the Indo-European family spoken by over 17 million people, primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This course teaches the Northern dialect as spoken in Kabul (Afghanistan), which will be understood through all Pashto-speaking regions. Pashto is one of the two official languages of Afghanistan (Dari is the other) and the native tongue of approximately 50 percent of the population there. Although, not an official language in Pakistan, it is spoken by approximately 13% of the population. Pashto uses a modified version of the Arabic alphabet, and is read right to left.

Comments about Pashto, Basic:
The Pashto Basic language course is very well designed. I like the bits of cultural information thrown in, and I like how the new material is related to, and builds on, the old. I listen to this driving to work and one lesson is just the right length for a commute! The only thing that annoys me is the daily e-mails from Pimsleur exhorting me immediately to buy more - this one will keep me busy for quite some time, thank you very much.
