This alphabet workbook has been prepared with the intention to teach Pashtu alphabet to interested individuals in an easy and fun way and within a short period of time. Students are expected to read and write Pashtu script after studying and completing the entire book with all its exercises. Pashtu letters are categorized into families of letters to facilitate learning except for the first letter of the alphabet. The letters in each family are introduced, their common characteristics are elaborated. Then, each letter is pronounced, transliterated and explained, backed with examples.
The examples in this book are of particular importance. Most of the examples are familiar words in English such as names of places written in Pashtu script.
The goal behind putting this book is to enable students or enthusiasts of Pashtu language to, first of all, recognize and pronounce the letters in all their forms—whether connected or not to another letter, or used in the beginning, middle or at the end of a word. Second of all, students should be able to conjugate letters in a word and pronounce the words. Thirdly, students should be able to write when given simple words. In short, the goal of this book is threefold—to enable students’ recognition including pronunciation of letters, conjugation of letters to produce a word and writing of words as well as pronouncing them.
