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!

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 KURDISH?

  • Kurdish is spoken by over 35 million people worldwide.
  • Kurdish is the official language of Iraq.
  • Learn Kurdish if you plan to travel to Iraq.

Visiting Iraq

Kurdish, official language of Iraq alongside Arabic, is spoken by about 35 million people worldwide. Long ago, modern Iraq was ancient Mesopotamia, from the Greek meaning “between two rivers,” and it was here first that the cultivation of land was induced by humans, where writing was invented and where the Assyrians, Sumerians and Babylonians all made Iraq the center of the ancient world. When Islam came, Iraq again took center stage. Islam's most memorable split — between Sunnis and Shiites — was first played out on Iraqi soil. Baghdad also became one of Islam's greatest capitals, home to the Abbasid caliphs whose reign has become an embodiment for Islam's advances in learning and sophistication.

Kurdish-speaking Countries

In addition to Iraq, Kurdish is also spoken extensively in Turkey, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Turkmenistan and Pakistan.

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

  • Xelkî kam deverî? (Where are you from?)
  • Kurdî qise dekeyt? (Do you speak Kurdi?)
  • Hîway selametît bo dexwazim. (Get well soon.)
