This is followed by analysis of the new concepts providing plenty of examples and illustrations. Next comes the chapter summary. Each chapter in part one ends with exercises. Part two (phrasebook) is about how to communicate with Afghans on a variety of situations (topics). This part first discusses language functions such as asking, ordering, requesting, apologizing, persuading, and so on. The second part is about topics or situations involving shopping, health, transportation, security, government and so on. The relevant vocabulary under each topic is listed into nouns, verbs and adjectives. The topics also include cross-cultural notes and proverbs.
