My First Dari Dictionary
With colorful, eye-catching illustrations to stimulate imagination and curiosity, My First Dari Dictionary is specially designed for children ages 5 to 12. It contains more than 1,000 everyday words (from colors, animals, household items, foods and more)—each illustrated and translated into Dari with accompanying phonetic pronunciation.
The illustrations are arranged alphabetically by English so even young readers can easily search for words, and each one is labeled with clear, bold type. Recent studies suggest that children should begin learning a foreign language before age 10 for best results.
This dictionary is a fun, engaging way for parents or grandparents to introduce Dari to young children. Teachers will also find the dictionary useful for students who are learning Dari or English from Kindergarten and up.
Spoken by over 12.5 million people worldwide, Dari is the version of Persian (Farsi) spoken in Afghanistan, and the primary language of Kabul, the nation’s capital. It is an Indo-European language which uses the Persian alphabet for its writing system.
