I didn't learn Pashto as a kid. I only attended school for 3 years in Afghanistan. By the age of 18 I couldn't read or write anything. Then I started teaching myself. About 10 years ago I forced myself to learn how to read and write again. Now I read books, I can write and I am trying improve it so that I can start writing books in Pashto in future.

I taught myself to read and write Pashto in the past few months. I can read and write better than anyone else in my family but I have a vocabulary deficiency and I'm not experienced in reading Perso-Arabic script outside of reading Quran so my reading is very slow.

I attended school during the communist era. We barely had any proper classes due to rocket attacks. I didn't really learn anything in those three short years.

I knew some Pashto because my paternal family speak Pashto. My mom speaks Dari and I only spoke Dari for years. I decided to speak and write in Pashto when I became an adult.

Chimi kuni is what are you doing
Me fahme is i understand
Nafamom? I think you mean nafahmidi(means dont know)
Ast is 'is' or 'ist'(German Cognate) or 'de/da'(Pashto)
