Survival Phrases

CeLCAR also sells Language Survival Kits for Dari and Pashto, which include a pocket-size (3.5 x 5) phrase book and accompanying CD. Phrase books list the phrases in the target script, phonetic translation, and English equivalent. These books were designed specifically for our language seminars and therefore include highly specific jargon in addition to everyday phrases.

    Specific topics include:

  • Greetings
  • Introductions
  • Daily Activities
  • Food
  • Time and Measurements
  • Sports
  • Family and Relatives
  • Conversations with native co-workers
  • Body Parts and Medical terms
  • Agriculture
  • Government Humanitarian Reconstruction
  • Military.
