    Dear Afghanistan Team,
    We want to introduce the Afghan Council UK as providers of language training in Dari, Pashto. As native speakers, we have experience in running successful language and cultural training courses for government departments. We would like to enquire whether there are any opportunities for our trainers to work for your company.
    Please forward this email to the relevant department which is responsible for the bidding process for the cultural language training course Afghanistan or alternatively please send me their contact details or email address.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
