Lesson 32


  1. pervez says:

    To all dear persian class mates
    ,if i say word RAA is not be used after this book, this man,a book, or that man,i will be correct or wrong.any body help me please


  2. i will talk about ‘ra’ in a separate lesson in the future.

  3. Dear Hassan (or other fellow learners), please answer my question. Why didn’t you put ‘ra’ for the verb “to read” (khandan) while in Lesson 17′s useful drills, you put ‘ra’ for khandan.

    as you said that ‘ra’ depends on the verb.. But I also have found another inconsistency of ra in other verb (I forgot which lesson).

  4. Ooh nevermind! I fast forwarded the lessons to see the explanation of the ra. Thank you :)
