Connecting with Afghans through language

Nelson Mandela once said, “If you talk to a man in a language he
understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his
language, that goes to his heart.” A similar line of thought is
occurring at NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan where Dari language
course have begun.

the NTM-A headquarters – a basic Dari conversation course for senior
leaders and mentors, and “Qatra, Qatra,” a basic Dari course for any
interested coalition members.
