hey, glad to hear things are going ok. I must say that no matter what yu been thru so far, I have been worrying about your safety and any other things that can go wrong. Please update your blog regularly so we can know you are ok and also to tell us about your experiences of course.
Always with you.
Learning Tajik in Khorog is difficult. The people here speak Shugni and occassionally Russian but rarely Tajik. I would suggest that you live outside of GBAO (or in Darvaz or Vanj – the Tajik parts of GBAO) if you want to learn Tajik. As for language programs, most people hire private tutors but it is fairly difficult finding one that also speaks English.
Thanks for the insight! Definitely appreciate it!!! I know it might not make much sense to study in Khorog, but I just don’t want to be living in the capital for the entire time! I would love to live somewhere…off the beaten path. All I need is some kind of tutor haha. Are there many guesthouses in the city? Do you happen to know the average price?
I actually don’t know much about accommodation in the city. I’ve always rented an apartment. I’m sorry, I’m not very useful on that front.
You’ll be able to find a tutor in Khorog, but it is difficult to practice here….so keep that in mind. Also, most of the tutors won’t speak English….Good luck!!
