Persian Lesson 37 – Simple Future Tense
Salam! Khosh amadid!
Hello everyone, how are you?
1- Listen to the audio files first (preferably once). Repeat it for a couple of times. Write it down on a paper. Find their English equivalents. (Seen)
2- Find the Persian equivalent for the following words and make seven sentences with each of them (one in simple past tense, negative in simple past, interrogative in simple past, one in present perfect tense, negative in present perfect tense, one using ‘for’, and one with ‘since’).
3- Say these numbers in Persian:
40 – 60 – 30 – 64 – 231 – 1364 – 64231 – 230460
So far, we have successfully learned simple past tense as well as present perfect tense. I think we are now ready to take another step in our learning. Today, we are going to learn a new tense, which is Simple Future Tense.
Please be patient if we are still avoiding the simple present tense. As I have already told you, this tense (simple present tense) is irregular and will probably bring us a little difficulty. That’s why I don’t want to deal with it now. But, don’t worry; we’ll have plenty of time to take care of it! You will face it willy-nilly!!
Ok, now let’s see the simple future tense.
Suppose that we want to say this in Persian: I will write
Let’s see an example:
Keep it in your mind for what we are going to do next.
Now, suppose that we are going to say the followings:
Here, we have a kind of auxiliary verb in Persian, which can help us a lot. I am not going to tell you the root of this auxiliary verb since it refers to simple present tense. Instead, I’ll give you the verb and you’d better memorize it without any special rule to learn. This will be much easier. Ready?
Hopefully, it’s not difficult for you to memorize.
Result: we have happily created a verb in Simple Future Tense!
Now, let’s see another example:
Was it difficult? I hope not!
