Dari Class by Afghan Communicator

In order to re-introduce Afghans to one of their languages and introduce non-Afghans to Afghan language of Dari, Afghan Communicator is delighted to offer its third semester of Dari classes in Manhattan or Queens, starting early July 2003.

The classes will be taught by a fifteen-year veteran teacher of the Habibia College in Kabul. The beginner and intermediate classes are for 8 weeks (3 hour sessions). At the end of the semester, successful students will receive a certificate of completion. Classes are open to Afghans and non-Afghans. The minimum age limit is 18.

The cost of the book and course materials are $150, to be paid in full by check, money order or cash in the first session. There is no other fee aside from the $150. There will be about 10 students per class.

We are also considering offering classes in Flushing, Queens, only if there are enough people interested. When replying, please mention which location you would like to attend and at what level.
