Discussions are a vital part of mentoring sessions, and they are sometimes difficult to anticipate. Nonetheless, they provide a goldmine of information for the student. Here are two instances of useful discussions that came out of seemingly simple questions.


Discussion Example I (Pashto)

This discussion about when vowels are used in Pashto writing comes out of the question, “how do you spell Boston?”

Discussion Example II (Pashto)

This discussion originates in checking the student’s homework. First they talk about allergies and end with American/Pashto expressions for illness and then they go on to hospitality.
