    we learnt that at lesson 13!
    “we have /ra:/ after /dær/, which is the object of our sentence. As a rule, whenever a word is followed by /ra:/ is an object. It’s that simple: word + /ra:/ makes object.”
    it has no meaning in english I guess.. It is a small word like “from” or “the” if I can imagine, which means that the previous word is the object of the following verb!

      Thanks Maria for your help.

      You are right on ‘ra’,

      but I will talk about ‘ra’ in more detail as soon as possible (many students are complaining about this).

      Best,
      Hassan

    Dear Hassan,

    Could you please explain why you wrote “hands” and suffixes separately in this drill? (our hands, their hands)

      I was also wondering why some words in plural are written together with suffixes while others are not. For example: “our books” was written together, but “our bicycles” was not.
      Could someone explain?

    Can you talk about use of “ash” in the bicycle sentence? I’ve not seen this kind of ending in past tense before. Is it attached with a verb pointing to an objective noun, or something else?

    You have missed out the word “ra” in many of the objects. May I know why?

    Bonjour!!! (a drop of french)

    You write :
    او پرید روی دوچرخه اش
    to translate He jumped on his bicycle.
    Why دوچرخه اش and not دوچرخهش ?
    خانه اش and not خانهش ?…

    Hi Ziplaboum!
    This particular letter can be vowel and consonant as well. In the end of the words it’s an “e” (vowel). If you write خانه اش, you read “khane-ash”, so you can see the 2 vowels. But if you write خانهش, if you read, it’s khanehash, because this letter in the beginning and in the middle of the words is “h” (consonant).
    Hope it helped!
    greetings!

    Hi Hassan! Thank you for the lessons! I am wondering if you could do an audio of these paragraphs so that we could learn the accent and intonation as well. I understand that Farsi is very melodic and the way I pronounce these sentences may be too flat! If you could, maybe you don’t have to read it too slow (not too fast too of course :), so we could practice listening and speaking better and to get the ‘flow’ going. Thank you and I love your lessons, I have to say I become a little bit obsessed:p

    nice work indeed sir. I did the drill of lesson 20 almost correctly because of your efforts but like another friend I am also confuse with the use of “RAA” for example: there is ” I saw my friend in the supermarket” in Persian translation of it, it has “RAA” such as “Man dostum raa deedum” whereas in another sentence ” I saw four children” there is no “RAA” this time.”Man chihar bacheh deedum” why not “Man chihar bacheh raa deedum”???

    Hassan, once more congratulations for your website. I’m working hard every day, the vocabulary list is becoming longer and longer. I feel weak in front of all the job to be done and wish could learn faster ! Anyway, I try to keep my spirit high and force me to learn as much as you propose, every day.

    Great website. Really love it. Thank you very much for such amazing and really giant job you have done.
    I have one question. In the example “I liked milk” we have milk as object. Right? But we have translated without ra. Why?
