Sorani Kurdish Level 2:

Targeted at beginners with Level 1 exposure to the Kurdish language and those who want to go beyond conversational Kurdish. The objective of Level 2 is to build on the conversation skills gained in Level 1 and also introduce learners to basic reading and writing in Sorani Kurdish.

Prerequisite: Completion of Kurdish Level 1 or a demonstrated command of basic Sorani Kurdish. 

Sorani Kurdish Level 3:
