Certified Pashto and Dari teacher
italki teacher since Apr 18, 2018
As a Pashto language teacher, I have a long experience in language teaching. I am a native Pashto speaker, and also speak Dari language very well. In addition, I have a long experience in teaching Arabic.
I hav worked as a teacher in many international humanitarian organizations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and Global Partnership for Education (GPE). also I have worked as a teacher in Afghan schools.
My hobby is reading and discussing, especially on cultural and social issues.
If you are with me here in Itaki, you will learn Pashto quickly and learn more about Afghan culture.

Thanks largely to Aziz Rahman Hazim's help, I earned a 3 on the ACTFL exam for spoken pashto. This score indicates professional fluency and I think this speaks more to Aziz's talents than any particular skill I have in language learning.
I would not have obtained this score without the scores of reading materials, spoken lessons, and transcriptions that he so skillfully conveyed throughout my period of study. Aziz knows how to write and articulate himself well in pashto. This is a rarity among pashto tutors on this site and I would say he was far and away the most competent instructor that I encountered among ~6 total.
If you have an idea for what you want, not only will he work with you, he make your idea go above and beyond your original objectives. Moreover, his voice is friendly and his general demeanor throughout the lessons encourages you to speak. Go for him if you want to learn pashto. I earned a 3 on the exam, and I doubt many other teachers can provide what he does.

I had a great lesson with Aziz. I have learned another language previously but for now I cannot learn another due to time. However I do want to get some word banks and verb banks filled in so I can store vocabulary and familiarise myself with Pashto words and grammar rules so I feel I am getting somewhere and all time is not being lost. I made a HUGE list of verbs where you could write them in infinitive form and present progressive tense. He filled them all out perfectly! There were a lot! He was very happy to help and work for now in a way that will benefit the student better. I would highly recommend Aziz for this reason. I am taking another session tomorrow for prepositions and conjunctions and then one other for town/city and family nouns. After that I will return to him for lessons. 5 star!
