    I am enjoying your lessons,used along with several grammars. But it seems to me that in lesson 11 many of your spoken words seems to include an extra syllable and some are for a different example. I also wish I could hear the examples more than once!

      DARAM is the present simple tense, and DASHTAM is the past simple.

    Persian root verbs are all the past. So DASHTAM is the root verb of “To Have”. And DASHTAM also means “I had”(past). DARAM means “I have”(present).
    But in English our root verbs are all in the present not the past.
