Walk the sandy roads of Afghanistan and trek the same paths left by humans at least 50,000 years ago. The country’s rich and ancient architecture, artifacts, and culture will guide you through a fascinating journey that begins with the Middle Stone Age all the way to modern times. Today, Afghanistan is a crossroads of civilization and home to 31 million people. As an increasingly relevant region, learning the language opens up lines of communication crucial to global affairs, politics, and cultural competence.
