Summary:

Dari, also called “Dari Persian,” “Eastern Persian,” or “Afghan Persian,” is one of the two official languages of Afghanistan, the other being Pashto. Dari, however, is the standard language used in the government and in the media, and is the native tongue of about 50% of the population. It’s one of three major Persian dialects, although there are many minor ones. Pimsleur's Dari courses teach the official form, “Kabuli Dari.”

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Dari Persian Phase 2, Units 26-30 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Dari.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Dari. You'll be reading words, phrases, and short sentences using familiar vocabulary as well as new vocabulary regarding useful topics such as food, travel, shopping, communication, and more. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

Pimsleur® programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur® gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed. (AudioFile magazine)
