Recruiting for a Pashto course in the incubator
We're recruiting. Pashto is said to be one of the most difficult language on earth, very few learning resource exist for Pashto, but I'm sure we can ;-)
(Pashto is also the language that pays the more on earth when you are a translator!)
I would like to provide help for Pashto as it is my native tongue and I am sure I have quite a lot of friends who can also provide their help... Keep in touch mate..
If you apply to English for Pashto speakers and make it in, you will automatically be considered for the reverse course.
I'd love to do a duolingo Pashto course. I have a book already - "A grammar of the Pukhto, Pushto, or language of the Afghans" by H.G.Raverty - but I wasn't planning to start it till I've finished the Persian course (on Mondly).
good luck! my fathers side of the family is pashtuni, and i dont speak a lick of it, but it sounds like a lovely language
From what I've heard from a friend who knows a little of it, it's just the syntactic difference rather than an inherent difficulty. (And there's inflections as well)
I am desperate to find a way to learn more Pashto! I started with "Your First 100 Words in Pashto" to learn how to read in Pashto and moved on to a Pimsleur course from there, but I really want more. :-)
Yes, it's very hard to find material to learn Pashto. It's the reason why Duolingo would make a unique and valuable thing in adding this very much sought language.
السلام عليكم. Hello everyone ! If you know any women/sisters willing to exchange Pashto for English please comment here to me! I prefer women so I can practice my accent and because I am a new muslimah. I know some Arabic but need to learn Pashto. I have skype/viber/whatsapp.
Desperately want to start learning Pashto somewhere. I think there would be plenty of people to help Duolingo out. Using roman alphabets to write Pashto could also work like chinese pinyin table.
Romanizing Pashto could get problematic with quite a few similar sounds. The script is not the same as any of these but falls in the same family as Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Sindhi (it is the most similar to the last two), so if you know any of these, you have an advantage.
I don't know it but would definitely want to try the Pakhtoon tongue someday.
I really want to learn pashto . My GF is a pakhtun but she never teach me.
