    It is really very easy to learn Persian using your site. Yesterday I spent 2 or 3 hours studying the first five lessons and have learned to pronounce, write and detect the first 18 letters of the Persian alphabet.

    I took a break from Persian, but am back noticing the awesome new features, however I’ve noticed a slight thing that I wondered if it could be fixed. When I go to the Lesson’s writing page I have to go back to the main lesson to go to the next lesson. Can you possibly make a link like the previous format to go to any of the four pages of a lesson? For example, can you somehow make a link on let’s write 6 to lesson 7? Thanks. I love the new format by the way. Can’t wait to review and catch up to my previous point. I hope to catch up on my goal set last year of lesson 77 by December :)

    Thank you very much for this website! Very well done and easy to make your way through it, considering it’s a completely new language to me.

    I have just one question: How does the sound for Ghain differ from Re? You haven’t written that they’re both the same sound, so I listened to both and I have trouble finding the difference in pronunciation.

    Thanks again.

    It’s clear.The Persian alphabet is an Arabic alphabet for Farsi speakers.For this reason many signs have the same sound, meanwhile in Arabic the sound is different (I have an Arabic dictionary). For the Latin alphabet is the same thing with many other languages, strange world!

    Thank you very much!! This site is a perfect way to learn such a difficult language….
    Just one question about this page:
    Why there is “All Alef” below the “Ain”?
    Sorry if I not understood something..

  12. Veronika
    November 25, 2012 @ 2:16 am

    YuYu, because they have the same pronunciation when “ain” is combined with vowels :)

    Is ghain pronounced the same as kh? I mean, with the vowels.

    Thankyou Hassan! I married my Persian boyfriend last year and am dying to be able to talk to his family. I used Rosetta stone but your breakdown makes everything so much easier to understand – thankyou! Now I just have to keep up my patience to learn – thanks for the reminder every lesson :-)

    This website is fantastic! There is so much care and consideration put into the lessons.

    I was born in Iran but have lived in the US since the age of 5 (I’m now 21 years old). Recently, I’ve been incredibly eager to learn my native language and this website has been heaven-sent!

    THANK YOU – for all your effort and help!

    Hassan, I think there doesn’t exist in English any word to thank you enough for this wonderful knowledge you’ve made available to netizens. :) (maybe is there a Persian word to express our huge and sincere gratitude though? ^^)

    In any case, now that I’ve reached Lesson 30, I would like to share my workflow using your lessons, hope it can be useful to my fellow learners. :)

    1 – I’m using a classic paper notebook to write every words, sentences and homeworks (Persian, transcription and English most of the time).
    2 – Then I type the words on this virtual persian keyboard http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/persian.htm to be able to copy and paste them.
    3 – I check whether I spelled them correctly on the English version wiktionary (there’s a page for most of the Persian words taught here): http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ This is also useful to check the alternative definitions, the etymology, the other languages the words are used in, as well as derived terms.
    4 – To help remember the words, I create flashcards using Anki software: http://ankisrs.net/ One face has the Persian and transcription, the other face has the English translation. Using a spaced repetition algorithm, it helps me to work everyday on remembering the words that I tend to forget. Each of the words are tagged with their lesson number so it’s easily reusable. The best is to create our own flashcards, but if anybody is interested I’d be happy to share them. :)

      Hello teacher Hassan,

      Thank you so much for this website ..its so perfect and your teaching methodology here is so light… you made it really easy for us to understand especially for first timer ( like me)….meanwhile…. i need help if somebody ( ” online classmates”) who lives here in Dubai, we can meet and review the lessons face to face as we go along with our online learning…some interactions… this would be more effective….because we can apply it, we can speak to each bits of farsi phrases and all… thanks or do you have any other suggestions teacher/classmates out there? thanks a lot.

    Hi, I love your site, it helps me a lot; my boyfriend is persian, that’s why I’m interested in the language. When he first tried to teach me something, I thought it’s almost impossible for me to learn this, but then I found this page and realised it can be learnt easily. Thank you:)

      Right now you aren’t saying anything. You are merely learning the alphabet and how the letters are pronounced. Actual lexicon, grammar, and syntax will come in later lessons.

    Hi
    Thanks for this site, it makes learning Persian so much easier, when I hear it being spoken it sounds so complicated but hopefully I will have a better understanding shortly and be able to speak to people when I’m handed the phone :)

    Thank you so very much. I have found your site and method very easy to use, as well as interesting. In time, I hope to be able to use what I have learned to help me with my Setar playing studies, as the book that I am using (by Hossein Alizadeh)is not available in English. I can already “detect” words such as “Reng” and “Chaharmezrab” Again, many thanks.

    Feedback on letter 21: The way you compared it to the English word “Main” is not correct. “Main” is pronounced completely differently. A better comparison would be the German word “Ein” as in “Ich bin Einberliner”. Apart from that, this site is fantastique.

    Hey Hass loving the course, however the printed test area where we search for words is really hard to read. The font is not as defined. Is there anything that can be done about that? If it comes down to man hours I can help! And Marion is correct German word “Ein” is better. Additionally in the english language you could achieve the correct sound by replacing the “M” in “I’m” with and “N”.. I’n.. Same effect.
    Love your course.
