      So that you have just learnt the first lesson, I should remind you that it is not “Farsi”, and the true translation of “Parsi” in English is “Persian”. Unfortunately, many people still don’t recognise this very important point. (Ref. Oxford English Dictionary)

      • Mehrdad

        Thank you Arash. Most Iranians do not understand this simple thing. Somehow Iranians think if a word is just spelled in English letters that’s English.

        In the English language as you said, there is a word for the language spoken by the people of Iran and a few other central Asian countries, and that is called “Persian”
        Writing or saying the word ” Farsi” while speaking English is technically incorrect.
        The same way you say : I speak Spanish. And not: I speak Espanyol.
        Unfortunately our countrymen have ignorantly spread the use of the word “Farsi” in English language.

        Other examples are; Bank Melli Iran. [ not National Bank of Iran, not even Melli Bank ]. I see branches of the bank around the world and it’s so embarrassing. So is ” Bank Saderat Iran”. ! Seriously!? And ” Team Melli”. It had been so commonly used that now the world thinks it is actually the name of our national team!

        Surprisingly, I have tried to explain this to Iranians, every time they look at me as if I have two heads.

      With all due respect Arash (jan), both Farsi and Persian are correct and common in usage. I, myself, use ‘Farsi’ whenever it comes to introducing my language and it’s fine.

    Hi! I love this this site! I am leaning Farsi for Persian boyfriend. I am painting him a picture and I want to write “I Love you” in the middle. I know “dooset daram” is “love you”, but he says you really say “man dooset daram” for “I love you” Can anyone help me with the Persian letters for man dooset daram. I think all I am finding online is dooset daram. Thank you!!

    • farzam
      May 24, 2014 @ 4:21 am

      Hi Katie
      “dooset daram” is “I love you” . But if you want to say “I’m in love with you” you must say “aasheghetam”.
      we use “dooset darm” or “man dooset daram” for mother , father, our friends or teachers and …..for boy friend or girl friend.
      anyway …
      dooset daram : دوست دارم
      man dooset daram : من دوست دارم
      aasheghetam : عاشقتم
      If you have any question I’ll be happy to help you.

        October 20, 2014 @ 2:23 pm

        Hello,
        well I think ‘dooset daram’ is spoken language, so if you’d write in Persian script دوستت دارم (‘doostat daram’) it would be correct :) However, I’m a learner myself, but hope this helps :)

        • David
          November 5, 2014 @ 11:47 am

          Yes, it’s correct.

          How would you say “I will love you forever and always”? Or some variation of “forever and always”? I’d like to paint something for my boyfriend who speaks Farsi and I don’t want to get it wrong and ruin the painting! Thank you:)

      • Mr. A.
        July 22, 2015 @ 4:52 am

        Sorry to disagree with Farzam, and millions of others who, I believe, incorrectly say “Dooset Daram” or “Man Dooset Daram” means I Love You. It does not. The correct and technical translation for Dooset Daram is Like You or even I Like You (more correct would be Man Dooset Daram for I Like You) , and that is why it is commonly used to say to basically anyone you like.

        Either due to technical reasons of the language structure, or due to loss of words with with time, the phrase of “I Love You” does not exist in Parsi/Farsi/Persian, or has been lost. Persian has “I Am In Love With You” (Man Aasheghetam). I think, in a foggy part of my mind, I recall someone who studied the language and located a phrase of I Love You, which was nothing like Dooset Daram or Aasheghetam, and told me what it was. If thy foggy memory is correct, then sadly I forgot what that phrase was.

        I am not anything of a language expert, but I know that the Persian word of Doost means Like, and Dooset is a modified version of that word for when you are saying things like, I like You, or We Like You, or They Like You, etc. Aashegh means In Love. I do suspect it is most likely that that either the old cultures or concept viewed that one can be in love with something or someone and the concept of Love being a noun was maybe not something that existed. For now, unless more is found to indicate otherwise, when I consider how Dooset Daram and Aashegh are used in the language of Persian, then it suggests Persian’s could Be In Love with things and people, but not Love things or people, but Like things and people.

        • Mr. A.
          July 22, 2015 @ 5:28 am

          In other words, a Persian could Like something while being In Love with it, and he/she could Like someone while being In Love with him/her.

        I Love you = من دوستت دارم
        Or = من عاشق تو هستم
        I = من
        Love = دوست داشتن or عاشق شدن
        You = تو or شما

      July 22, 2015 @ 5:07 am

      Sara, and others. If you can get your hands on an official elementary school’s alphabet teaching book for a child, then you most likely can learn fairly well. They would be just two thin books that have lots of pictures to help, and are made for children to learn. As I recall, first half of the alphabet is on one book and the second half of the alphabet is thought in the second book. If you get lucky, you may find an old one advertised at Shop Ads. The specific URL for Children’s Elementary Farsi Book is http://shopads.whw1.com/?q=childrens%20elementary%20Farsi%20book is what I came up with. You can try other word phrases to see what you can find through there. Know that you would need to wait something like 10 seconds for all the world’s ads to be searched before results show. The ad results for items for sale will show as a pink or orange background color. The non-ad results show below in white. The really old books, and non-religious based books would have brown covers; probably hard to find now, and will end up being even harder to find after this post of mine.

      • Mr. A.
        July 22, 2015 @ 5:58 am

        By the way, above, I refer to getting your hands on an elementary book used to teach kids in schools of Iran (the name was Persia until the name got recently changed in this century; fyi, someone, I respect for correct information, told me the country of Persia was called Iran prior to being called Persia, and then became Iran again in recent times). I know some get Persia and Persian Empire confused, which at one time covered from Spain, to Africa, to Europe, to Russia, to India, to east Asia, and all of West Asia (which is what places like Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia, and many other countries are within). Ya folks, Iran, and all those other countries around it, in that region, are Asian; specifically West Asian. There is no such place as a “Middle East”, which is a derogatory slang phrase used as an insult. Iran is not East to any place, and not the in the middle, and is simply part of West Asia, as China is part of East Asia.

    Salam!

    I assume most of you are trying to learn enough farsi to speak with friends or family that you’ve been trying to communicate with for a long time but the ‘language barrier’ (the dreaded barrier) gets in the way. I understand how that feels. I used to feel like that with farsi when I was younger. However, after having lived in Iran for a couple years and visiting it on several occasions(In fact I just got back a week ago from a one month visit), as well as growing up speaking it with my family, I can now communicate with friends and family in Farsi fluently. If anyone wants to speak the language, and understand the Iranian culture so you can talk and connect with those you care about, it’s a lot easier then you think. Fortunately farsi is one of those languages where most of the meaning is expressed directly rather then subtly, such as English.I also believe it’s much easier to learn then English. Therefore it’s very simple picking up the language. And there’s not an endless amount of words to learn. One must understand that 80% of conversations use only 20% of the vocabulary. Therefore, you only need to learn 20% of the words to speak and understand 80% of conversation! The ’80/20′ rule holds true in almost every language. In fact, I don’t even know how to read and write in Farsi, yet I can still speak it fluently and communicate with those I care about. So if your interested in learning how to connect with us Iranians, whether it’s friends, family, coworkers or because you want to visit Iran one day and see it’s breathtaking scenery, amazing culture and extremely hospitable people, then I can help you learn farsi! Contact me at Rezazandirz@gmail.com. Best of luck!

Suggestion — more exercises would be useful, changing up the order of the sounds, then maybe some audio ‘help’ to check your work. Maybe some ‘stupid games for English speakers’ to add a bit of fun (can’t help but hear Sam from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ saying ‘POE-TAY-TOE’, or later with the long vowel sounds I keep hearing ‘bippity-boppity-boo’.)
