Persian Lesson 44 – Past Perfect Tense
Salam! Khosh amadid!
Hello everyone, how are you?
I hope all of you are doing well with the lessons and have made good progress.
Unfortunately, due to some reasons, I had to close the Persian samples page from this week. I am totally aware that this page has been one of your favorite pages since the very beginning. Please understand my situation and don’t get angry with me!
I have just added a link to my Links page, which has some great poems including ‘Fairies’ of Ahmad Shamlu in English. I am sure you will like it. You may find it on Links page this week.
As always for many weeks, let’s do the quiz first.
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 nine 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’, one in simple future tense, and negative in simple future tense).

Suppose that we want to say this:
I had gone.
As you see, this structure is very similar to what we have in present perfect tense ( I have gone).
So, let’s take a very quick review of present perfect tense first.

We already know how to say this:
