    This site is absolutely amazing. It’s broken down perfectly and so easy to understand. So many thanks to you. :)

    I think the big /Che/ graphic got mixed up with the graphic for the letter when the vowels are attached.

    I really like your site thanks! I just wish there was a simple way to move from page to page without missing any parts of the lessons. Like a simple “NEXT” button which would move you through your lessons. For example, the “NEXT” button could take you from the ‘Lesson’ to ‘Let’s Write’ then to ‘Useful Drills’ then to ‘Persian Samples’ then maybe to the ‘Persian Story’ and then straight onto the next lesson number.

    Hi Hasan,
    The lessons are well designed and easy to follow, yes. The only thing is that I wish there was audio too. Now there are text-to-speech software that can convert texts to speech. I looked online to purchase a good one so that I can convert the lessons in audio files and listen to them while I am painting. :-) However, it was hard for me to decide which one to get. I tried some online free demos but I just didn’t want to make a hurried decision and wanted to ask if any of you know a good text-to-speech software that worths spending money on. It would be nice to listen to the lessons several times instead of reading each time. It may help to retain learned things. Hoping to hear from you. Thanks!

    I’m a bit confused. On the previous page you say capital Alef only appears on its own, but here you say “this one comes at the beginning of the words.”

    Please clarify, thanks!

      Capital Alef only appears on its own means it doesn’t attach to other letters. never.
      But it comes mostly ( I mean 99.9%) at the beginning of the words(unattached to other letters)

        Hi . I’m Ali from Iran. 100% (آ) comes in begging of the word. If you see it used in middle or end of the word, the word is absolutely false. This is new law in persian writing. In meny years ago we saw seldom used (آ) in middle of the word , but you shouldn’t do it now .

      Hello, I have a question, you mentioned, /I/ alef can combine with several vowels, you have an audio of such combining, but how we can pronounce as A: E; A:O:? it means 2 vowles join tegether.

    I would really like to thank you for this wonderful idea! Thanks to you i’m starting to learn persian from Spain! :D it is explained in a very academic way! :)
    But i have one little question: can we write the mars of short vowels only in big letters or also in the small letters?

    Realmente es facil. Me encacta este metodo ya q me gusta mucho aprender idiomas y el persa me gusta por zarathushtra ya q nuestro apellido es zoroastro. Gracias

    I thought it was supposed to be pronounced like the a in apple? The short vowel I mean. When you listen to the recording, it doesn’t sound like the a in apple.

    I’m brazilian and I have no knowledge on any writing system other than Latin letters (used for English, my native Portuguese etc.). I’m finding this course very interesting and easy to follow. I tough it was far more difficult to learn read/write using a completely different alphabet, but you made it easy!

    I would like to ask you to add a link with the readings of the text where we exercised find in the letters of each lesson. It would help us to be used with how Farsi sounds and try to listen and identify the letters we just studied. Thank you!
