    Its very useful website for persian language but Farsi(Dari) is quite different due to grammar and routine way of communication or slang.

    Hi every one,
    I was searching for a web-site to learn Persian for some one who wants to learn as a second language and I found this website but I think for someone who has completely different alphabet may be first idea would be just start learning talking with English alphabet and later on start learning to read and write. Is it possible in this way to learn in this website or juts one have to start with Alphabet?
    Thanks,na.

    I’m a lesbian and I was wondering if there are any ways I can communicate with Iranian lesbians while in Iran for my trip. Are there special words I should know? Thanks!

      Watch your words ,, as a friend i want to give you an advice ,, unfortunately iran isnt a free country right now,, and the regim is islamic with islamic rules so any kind of homosexuality do does have strong punishments , so if you want to travel to iran be careful and forget about lesbian things:) just have fun with beautiful places and nice people;)

    I always had a desire to learn parsian, but didn’t know how? We get chance to watch some nice persian serials with english sub title & through this i have learned few words, it’s so interesting. Also got the opportunity to visit Iran,went for ziyarat, it’s an amazing country with such sweet people. Infact didn’t feel like coming back to my country. And fortunately I come across this very helpful website. Today is my 1st day here but I learned quite good. Thanks! And hope to continue.

    Aghaye Hassan – Almani hastam —-and i really have some knowledge in learning languages in general and as i want to learn farsi – i got all the books —there are 3 of them – for germans to learn farsi. And of course i have your internet course. – And please let me say that from all the farsi – courses your course is the best one! Really! 1.) The big problem of using presens —with the changing of words + adding MI—sometimes- sometimes not. —This big problem is ONLY solved in your course by avoiding present tense until to a late state…..with all other books – courses – hardly i learned a new word- infinitiv – i have to change it to make it present tense—-this is enormously confusing – and not very helpfull. – 2.) The problem in learning languages is for me to learn already at an early state USEFULL words, words which i could use easily talking to “indigens”. Of course in your farsi-course too my mind reads some words in lesson 28 or 39 (only examples) where my mind says NO—-i will not learn this word….for example: To publish…..only a little example…For sure agha ye Hassan azziz, i will not need this word going to Tehroon 3 months later….FOR SURE NOT…..and thinking to all those words for “to break”……
    But, but, i just got a new book for farsi-learning for germans—-and this book has for example in lesson 4 the words dejh, aazaar, in lesson 5 the word sabab, shaadaab, dasht, dastaar, sabr, zarraab, zarar……and so on and so on…..—and dear agha ye Hassan, compared with this book and my other farsi-learning-books….you really are an IDEAL in using USEFULL words. I know that the problem with persian/arab writing forces a teacher sometimes to use a word for showing a certain letter – but, honestly, i think sometimes these authors are too lazy to find a USEFULL word for a certain letter…..and as i told you: My mind revolts and says NO—-i will not learn the word zarraab now….for sure not. –
    For sure in my experience with learning languages i saw many, many pedagogic faults – for example i am not sure if i have to learn numbers in an early state until 2 millions…..- but from these experiences – at least concerning farsi-courses…your course is FAR the best one. —And this for nothing. Thanks Mr. Hassan—-btw i read your book, Bi Parchamaan—

      Hi Samana,
      Persian (in Iran) has two accents, written and dialogic. I appreciate your interest for learning my native language and proud to teach you what you’ve asked. I write the translations beside each word in both (written and dialogic) structures. The first part will be written format and the second ones will be dialogic. Hope you to learn fast and enjoy!

    I am learning Farsi for couple of years and I have a good storage of Persian words in my mind and I know well how to write in this language. I am frustrated that I still can not talk in person beyond two sentences and I get nervous. I guess I need an informal environment with Farsi speakers. If some one willing to help me please write me at manzil.q@gmail.com.

    Wow, I like this… it really helped. I am now the only person in my classes that knows a foreign language! But that’s not why I learned the language… I love learning languages, and I have gone to 24 different websites who say they teach languages, but don’t. They only say how to pronounce the alphabet, and teach you a few words, then set you free into the world. It’s like sending a baby bird into the skies without teaching it how to fly. Anyway, it really helped… do you have anymore websites like this one, except on different languages?

    Thanks,
    Kay

    Before I begin my pursuit of learning Persian (Farsi), I would like formally thank you first for providing this thorough website. After doing a considerable amount of research, there are simply no sites that take you from scratch to a comprehensive understanding of any Middle Eastern language. Thank you again, as I will begin using your website shortly, and quite often, each and every day, and hopefully accomplish my goal of becoming fluent in the langage.

    – Erik
