    Nope. The Afghan dialect (Dari) is very different from our Farsi.

    I can speak English and Mandrain fluently, but cannot write Chinese by hand very well. Fortunately there's the keyboard, hehee.

    I also speak enough Spanish to get by in Mexico and not starve to death. Back in school I had the misfortune of taking latin, a very dead and useless language.

    Is Dari related to Persian? 'Cause one of my very very ignorant friends thinks they speak Arabic...

    Yes, it is very similar. It is generally considered that Afghanis speak Persian. The difference between the two are comparable to the difference between German German and Swiss German.

    Yeah, many fools also think Iran is Arabic-speaking.
