HOW DOES IT WORK?
Watch to learn! See and hear how to speak your new language by watching video footage of native speakers, and learning from them. Conversations are spoken slowly so that beginning learners can understand everything. This language-learning method helps you build confidence on a computer before you test out your new speaking skills in the real world. Record yourself and listen to the playback to compare your pronunciation with the native speaker’s.

Play to learn with interactive games. Then take a comprehension quiz and see how you do in real-life social situations. A challenging recording quiz tests your pronunciation. You earn points for every game you play, and can earn bronze, silver and gold awards for your language achievements!

You can also learn on the go with a printable phrasebook. Practice your new language at school, on the plane... whenever you have a free moment!

Level 2 is designed to reinforce the basics of language fundamentals and will help you build proficiency in your new language. Interactive exercises and videos help build language fluency and keep novices engaged. Learn basic conversational phrases with structures you can adapt to fit different situations. Most importantly, Level 2 gives you the confidence to speak in your new language with a unique recording function.

WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?
If you know some basic words and phrases in your new language, but you aren’t sure you can handle a full conversation, Level 2 will get you talking. Level 2 is great for recent beginners with everything spoken clearly and slowly.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
Go beyond basics and learn how to put together complete sentences, especially about things you commonly need to say abroad. Examples of things you will learn include, “I’d like to pay by credit card,” “My camera has been stolen,” and “Where is the pharmacy?” Topics cover greetings, shops and restaurants, getting around, hotels, phone calls, emergencies, leisure and the basic vocabulary of business and technology.


WHY LEARN DARI?

  • Dari is the most widely spoken language in Afghanistan.
  • Dari is a dialect of the Persian language.
  • Learn to speak Dari if you plan to travel to Afghanistan.

Visiting Afghanistan

Dari is a modern dialect of the Persian language, and is the most widely spoken language in Afghanistan. Dari is spoken by about 20 million people worldwide. While it remains a volatile, often hostile area, Afghanistan contains some incredible treasures. Kabul sets a buzzing pace and Mazar-e Sharif and Northeastern Afghanistan is the home of the country’s most sacred site. Samangan (Aibak) is the site for the caves and shrines of Takht-e Rostam, a hidden Buddhist gem and while the senseless destruction of the Buddha statues of Bamiyan still resonates, their ruins, set in a serene valley, are an awe-inspiring sight.

Dari-speaking Regions

Beyond Afghanistan, Dari is spoken in some areas across central Asia, the Middle East and South Asia. 

Here are some of the basic Dari phrases that you might use:

  • Sobh bekheir! (Good morning!)
  • Aya mitavanid be man komak konid? (Can you help me?)
  • Hazineh an cheghadr ast? (How much will it cost?)
