Dari-English/English-Dari Dictionary & Phrasebook Reviews
This book can help you learn to speak Dari. However, you will not find instruction in the Persian alphabet in this book so you will not learn to read Dari using this book. However, the book does include instruction on verb conjugation early on whereas the other basic reference people often has does not. Other beginner Dari books often leave this out which is the only reason I would give a book that won't teach you how to write a language three stars. It also includes a large English-Persian pronunciation dictionary. This book can be purchased in Kabul, Afghanistan from some kids on the street selling books, but if you are truly interested in learning Dari I would recommend first buying the Hippocrene Beginner's Series Dari book as it will teach you the alphabet. Once you know the alphabet the two should be used in conjunction.
