Why is Kurdish an important language to learn?
Kurdish is mainly spoken in Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria, but you will also hear it in areas like Armenia, Lebanon, Georgia, Kazakstan, and Afghanistan. There are more than twenty million people that speak this language and while you may think that you will never see them, you may be surprised when you suddenly hear this language one day. There are different types of Kurdish spoken, depending on where a person lives, but two of them are considered the main ones. Those two are Kurmanji and Sorani and while they sound the same, there are some subtle differences. You may decide that you want to learn both these dialects, so that you can easily communicate with anyone that you meet in the Kurdish areas. Once you know how to speak Kurdish, you may find that your new skills are needed more often than you thought. This is because not many people learn Kurdish, so others will need you to be their translator, so they can communicate almost as easily as you can.
