Greetings - Slaw (s-l-ah-w)

Ok I'm going to teach simple greetings.

How are you? - Choni? (Ch-o-nee)
chon meaning "how" and the i (ee) meaning "you"

Your health? - Tendrustit? (Tan-dr-uus-teet)
This may seem like an odd thing to ask someone however,
in Kurdish, it flows out naturally

Fine thanks and you? - Bash'm supas ey to? (b-ah-sh-m su-pah-ss ey to)
Bash'm being the word for "good"; supas being the word for "thanks" and ey to meaning "and you"

Good bye - Xwahafiz (Kh-wah-ha-feez)
Xwa being the word for "God" and fiz meaning "protect".
As Islamic culture has now become mixed with Kurdish, when we say good bye, we say "god protect" a better translation would be "God bless"

ok good luck with these.

Learn Kurdish !

This is the first post. I try to get as many bloggers to help me out on this. There are no real resources for learning Kurdish on the net. So for that reason, this blog will be dedicated to give some basic lessons of the Kurdish language for those who might visit Kurdistan and want to learn a few basics of the Kurdish language.

I speak the Sorani dialect so I am expecting help from those who speak the other Kurdish dialects.
