Salam! Khosh amadid!

Hello everyone, how are you?

Today, we are going to learn the negative form of sentences in past perfect tense. Hopefully, we will finish the past perfect tense in two weeks. Then, we will start the simple present tense.

2- Find the Persian equivalent for the following words and make four sentences with each of them (one in simple past tense, one in present perfect tense using ‘for’, one in simple future tense, and one in past perfect tense).

Japan
Hungary
China

3- Say these numbers in Persian:

0 – 41 – 600 – 6000 – 60000 – 6003

4- Follow the examples, combine the letters, and make words using the given letters. You’ll have to change the big letters into the small ones whenever needed.

Friend <= /du:st/ < ==

Book <= /keta:b/ < ==

To take<= /bær da:shtæn/< ==

To return <= /bær gæshtæn/ < ==

Girl <= /dokhtær/ < ==

Boy <= /pesær/ < ==

Dishes <= /zærf ha;/ < ==

OK,

Now, let’s see the negative form of the past perfect tense.

Actually, there is nothing new here. You already know the negative form of sentences in simple past tense as well as in other tenses. You may apply the same rule here.

Put /nu:n/ with /næ/ sound in the beginning of verbs to make them negative.

Example:

I had seen = /mæn dideh bu:dæm/.

I hadn’t seen = /mæn nædideh bu:dæm/.

They had said = /a:nha: gofteh bu:dænd/.

They hadn’t said = /a:nha: nægofteh bu:dænd/.

My friend had called me = /du:stæm beh mæn telefon kærdeh bu:d/.

My friend hadn’t called me = /du:stæm beh mæn telefon nækærdeh bu:d/.

And so on.
