From this week, we are going to deal with words instead of single letters. To read the words properly, we have two ways. First, put the signs or symbols on or under the letters as we did during our previous lessons. Second, use the English phonetic alphabets instead of putting the signs on or under the letters. Personally, I think it will be better if we a pply the second choice. As I have told you during the first nine lessons, Persian words do not have symbols when written. So, we’d better get used to it from now. I know it’s a bit difficult in the very beginning, but you will see yourself fluent in near future. Just follow the phonetic letters and try to learn the words in a parrot- like repetition.
Note: Please pronounce the words that we have already studied.
In the following sentences, how many. do you detect?
1- You singular?
2- You plural?
5- He or she?
Note: Please try to answer the questions first. Then, if you want to be sure, find the correct answers at the bottom of the following sentences.
