Hello All!! Stere Ma She

I studied pashto at the Defense Language Institute in 2002. I am finally out of the military and would like to take my Pashto studies to a new level by studying the language and culture in a graduate school program. Here in the US I am aware that we have a Pashto program at Indiana University and University of Penn. Does anyone know of other Pashto programs in the US and also, any programs overseas? I think it would be great to study in another country besides the US but I think it would have to be an English speaking country for me to get the most out of my studies. I really like the forum you have here, thank you ahead of time for any responses.

I have just started working through this book and I thought I should comment on this guy. While what he is doing is great, I wouldn't recommend that people rely on this guy for answers, as (judging on his first lesson), he doesn't fully grasp what he is reading and makes some big mistakes, which aren't necessarily his fault as the book itself is quite flawed when it comes to the texts and using the correct letters.

For reference, I have written out conversation that he explains in this lesson and corrected the orthography:

نور چېري دي؟

داود: سلام۔
امان: سلام۔ ستړی مه شې۔
داود: خوار مه شې۔
امان: څنګه يې؟ / جوړ يې؟
داود: په خير يې؟ / ښه جوړ يې؟
داود: مهرباني۔
امان: تشکر۔
داود: ليلی چېري ده؟
امان: په کور کې ده۔
داود: رابيه او جون چېري دي؟
امان: ګومان کوم په ليليه کې دي۔
داود: پتنګ چېري دی؟
امان: په روغتون کې دی۔
داود: غلځی صاحب په صنف کې دی؟
امان: هو۔ له نوی شاگرد سره ناست دی۔
داود: ته څنګه يوازي ناست يې؟
امان: اسد ته منتظر يم۔


A few mistakes I picked up from the video

- 'Nor' in the title is not the name of a person, 'nor' here means 'others', so the title is "Where are the others?
- He doesn't make any distinction between the singular masculine 'day' (he/it is) or the plural 'di' (they are)
- Kawäm does not mean 'I am', but it is part of the compound verb 'goumān kawäm'
- جون refers to an American woman, Joan, not a man

I wouldn't recommend anyone learn from this book exclusively because it has lots of spelling and orthographical errors, but if you can recognise and correct the errors yourself it can be very useful for improving upon what you already know.

There is show aimed at children for learning Pashto on Ariana TV at 13:30 (EST), it is called "راځئ چې پښتو زده کړو".

There is a similar Dari program on Saturdays also.
