    You are not explaining what “ra” and “in” are. Are they particles that denote objects of the verb? I am memorizing them and their placement, but I don’t know why or what I am saying. HELP!

    Please ignore my message above. I found that someone answered my question in the comments under useful drills for lesson 14. No more will I skip the useful drills. Perhaps you should say that you are teaching new vocabulary in the useful drills section of each lesson? In English, “useful drills” sounds like an opportunity to do exercises using the previously taught vocabulary from the lesson, not another lesson altogether, which it partly is. Is this clear? Thanks.

    Your lessons are great. I am learning steadily but surely. Only one thing about the pronunctiations – I don’t seem to get the ‘khe’ – in some words I can, other’s I can’t. Any tips about how to pronunce this?

      Think about it coming from the back of your throat. Like your about to spit a loogie or something.

      It’s an important pronunciation as it’s used a lot.

      “Khelli khoobam.” I’m very good or I’m very well.

      Hi, Shezaan. It looks like you may have posted this to lesson 17, rather than 16, but to answer your question, you have to think about the noun. The noun you are using is babat – your father (also pedarat.) “Your father” is third person singular (like he/she.) Therefore, the proper form of the verb in the past tense would be the same as it would with “he” or “she.” In this case, it would be sakht. It looks like you might be getting confused by the word “your.” However, that word functions like an adjective here and does not convert the 3rd person subject into the 2nd person.

    Happy new year and many thanks for your website !
    Just a question.
    We can say :

    اتاق من my room (otaq)
    اتاق مان our room
    اتاق ما our room, the room to us (is it the right difference?)
    correct?

    And is it possible to write اتاقم for my room ?

    (I began to learn farsi on the french irib website. Now I work also with you in parallel. I enjoy, you clarify.
    I find some différences which are difficult to explain)
    Thanks for your answer.

    These lessos are superb. I feel that I amreallylearning something and makig progress.
    One way to even improve it would be to give the answers to the exercises. After making all exercises of Lesson 16 (A-C) I am still wondering if I made them the right way. The thing is that if one does not get corrected, small errores can become habits…
    I know this Webside is already a lot of work as it is, but perhaps others have the same problem? One way could even be a forum style platform for the solutions eve if it may be only i the transcribed form.

    In any case. Thank you so very much or this great course.
    Best regards Carlos
