The two official languages of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan are Dari دری and Pashto پشتو , written in Arabic script. Pashto is an Eastern Iranian language and is also widely spoken in Pakistan. Dari is a Persian language, and is often mutually intelligible with Tajik Persian and Farsi. Several other languages are also spoken in the country.
Several Pashto and Dari textbooks and dictionaries are available at Gelman library and through consortium loan. Limited language help is also available on Google translate.
