Pashto: An Elementary Textbook combines language and culture into a four-skills approach for learning Pashto that is sorely needed. Its versatility is its strength, and it appeals to students in both traditional language classrooms and independent language programs. -- Elizabeth H.D. Mazzocco, director, Five College Center for the Study of World Languages As an educator of Pashto language, I found [this] textbook particularly useful for those who intend to learn Pashto as a second language. In addition to the author's choice of topics and vocabulary, as well as the way grammar is organized, Inomkhojayev portrays Pashtun culture in a nonjudgmental manner, which makes this book exceptionally unique. -- Shirshah Said, Pashto language instructor, Indiana University
Rahmon Inomkhojayev is a professor at the Tashkent State Institute of Oriental Studies, where he teaches Pashto and Afghan studies. He is from Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
