These six volumes are designed for use in the Foreign Service Institute's basic audiolingual course in Dari (Kabuli or Afghan Persian). The course consists of 60 lessons, each having three main parts: (1) basic sentences and drills, (2) dialogues, and (3) an English-Dari vocabulary list. Many of the later lessons include additional sentences that expand on the contents of the particular lesson. Phonetic transcription of the language has been avoided except as an aid to pronunciation in the vocabulary sections. In order to reflect colloquial usage, a few minor changes have been made in the normal orthography. These have been noted in the vocabulary section of each lesson as they occur. (Author/PMP)
