    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love map and the one that I bought included Kursdistan in Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey. There are about 40 million Kurdish scattered in these four countries.

    What to buy: a mapamundi!

    What to pay: 4000 Iraqi dinars (about 2 and a half Euro)

    Al-Jazira Bookshop

    At the western end of Kawa Street, look out for the tiny Al-Jazira Bookshop. It might seem like an odd recommendation, but even if you don't speak or read Kurdish or Arabic, you might be interested in buying a map of the region or a Kurdish flag. If you do read Arabic, then you can pick up a semi-useful Kurdish phrasebook (optimistically entitled "Speak Kurdish Fluently!"). It won't teach you how to speak fluently, and you really have to scour the phrases for something you might actually be able to use, but it gave me a headstart...and also taught me how to read the Kurdish alphabet, which is based on Arabic but joins up differently.

    Now for a rant...why oh why oh why aren't there any Kurdish language study books available? My local bookshop has teach yourself guides for Albanian and Welsh, Tagalog and Telugu, Amharic and Armenian...but there is absolutely nothing available in English for learning Kurdish. Routledge and Teach Yourself and the other big names in the language book industry, please take note!
