Welcome to our first Persian lesson. Like anything else, you have to learn some basics first. We’re going to begin by learning some of the letters in the Persian Alphabet, namely short vowels and the letters used for B, P and T.
We are already familiar with long and short vowels. Now we can proceed and learn the pronunciation of every letter in the Persian Alphabet.
So far we have learned eight letters from the Persian Alphabet. After a quick review of what we’ve done so far, we’ll learn a few more.
This page is recommended if you want to learn to write in Persian. On this page you’ll find the same letters you have just studied this week.
Practice reading and writing Farsi with the drills found on this page. You should at least be able to recognize the letters we learned this week.
This page is dedicated to Persian poetry. These poetry samples are presented in a bilingual format to help your further understanding.
