    I love the lessons! I just have one question. While writing the Persian word for sister, Khahar, why does the letter Vav come after Khe?
    I’d appreciate any help here. Thanks :)

      I also have the same question. Why does the letter vav come after khe in khahar (sister)?

        it’s the same as letter “e” in last of some words in English we write it but we don’t pronounce it .

          you don’y pronouns the vav in khaher it’s a silent letter in some words.

      I don’t know about all the words, but what I’m sure about is that the words “خواهر” and “خواستن” used to be pronounced like خو+آهر and خو+آستن. Gradually the pronunciation has changed, but the autograph hasn’t. In some central parts of Iran you can still hear the old pronunciation. But it isn’t anything big, since you already know about silent letters in English.

    I don’t know if it is just my computer, but most of the audio files are very choppy. It’s very convenient having them there on the page without having to go to another for the audio, but about 85% of the time I miss the first and second syllable because it skips. I’d also like to hear anyone’s response to A’s question, I wondered that too. Thanks

    Khahesh mikonam, kheili mamnoon.
    It’s really impressive the job and dedication you’ve put into this course.
    One thing I’m missing, and probably you mention it somewhere in your vast lessons treasure, is to hear you repeat the words with the spoken language as well.

    what do you refer when you say “stress” in the words?

    I am so impressed with the amount of work that has gone into this site and how clear and easy it is to follow. With the speed of my progress my Iranian boyfriend does not believe that I did not know Persian before. Thank you for your efforts.

    i have the same problem with the vav in “khahar”. Why isn’t it pronounced?

    To answer a question asked by a few of you: Khahar خواهر has a silent vav. It is the same with other words like خوابدن khabdan (to sleep), خویش kheesh (relative), خواسن khastan (to want). Just one of those irregularities that all languages have.

    I am from Pakistan, and very fond of learning persian… and it is looking very easy to me because most of the words are similar to URDU..
    i will try my best to learn it more…INSHA ALLAH.

    Salaam, everybody. Your approach to teach Persian really works, Hassan. It helps anybody to learn Persian as easy as silk. We wish you all the best.

    actually it is not similar words. It is persian itself. Because it is Iranians who created Urdu language by mixing persian words to Khadiboli language

    Salam to all,
    I’m from Spain and I’ve just started to learn Farsi with your lessons. Thank you very much for all your useful and clear explanations. I’ve studied Arabic at university, so I’ve been able to reach the lesson 13 in just two days! :)
    Keep up the good work, and thanks again for your work.

    • Lars
      January 4, 2014 @ 11:34 pm

      And as you have studied Arabic you should know that it’s from a completely different language tree but I guess you mean that you have an advantage with the writing of the letters?

      • Sun
        January 5, 2014 @ 5:54 am

        Different languages, but getting to know the different alphabet is a big step for most beginners. Also getting used to read and write from right to left. And in both languages vowels aren’t mostly written. Let alone the common words; the languages have been neighbors for centuries. Of course he has an advantage, compared to a beginner who only knows Latin based languages.
        Best of luck for all learners.

    Thank you so much for these lessons. They are really helpful and easy to follow. Farsi/Persian pronunciation and vocabulary is easy for me since I can speak Hindi/Urdu, but I am having difficulty with the writing part since the typed Farsi and written Farsi is different. I was hoping if you could do more writing lessons which show the different ways to write Farsi words and how to connect the letters. Once again, THANK YOU!

    I’ve been quietly following your instructions from lesson one, but now I’ve decided to let you know that I think you have built something really incredible with this site. I’ve been putting off learning Farsi my whole life, thinking that it’s too hard, but here you are bringing the knowledge directly to me. Your style is perfect.

    Thank you, so much for what you have done. I can’t put into words how grateful I am.

    I’ll be following your lessons for as long as you are teaching them.

    Salam… I just noticed an English typo in your sentence here “in a few cases, when the word ends with long vowels, we just put with no especial sound” you wrote “especial” it should be “special”.

    Love the website thank you so much.

    Salam, I want to learn Persian so that I can do azadari at Karbala and Najaf in this language. I love reciting Nauhas and manqabats and I want to do that in Persian language. Your website is very very helpful. I do maintain a class book as well as homework book. :)
    God Bless You and keep guiding us.
