Persian Writing Lesson 1


Persian Writing Lessons
This page is recommended if you want to write in Persian. On this page you’ll find the same letters you have just studied This week. It will also help you detect Persian letters quite easily. Here, all you need to do is follow the arrows and numbers carefully. Please practice them for a couple of times.

Let’s Write 1


  1. As you know, Persian letters are written from right to left. Please follow the arrows.
  2. As you see, there are some ‘dots’ or ‘full stops’ on or under the letters. Please put the ‘dots’ in appropriate places.
  3. Please pronounce the letters with /e/ sound. /e/ as in bed.
  4. There are lines for Persian letters called ‘base lines’. When writing, you’ll have to keep an eye on the ‘base lines’.

Lesson 1


  1. I am glad to find this website

    • im trying to find the meaning of my persian friends company. it’s called ‘la sina’. i thought it was spanish at first but i found out the mom is caucasian and the dad is Iranian/Persian decent. I’m just wondering why would they name their company that. Just curious. Maybe one of you guys can help… thank you

      sckg :-)

      • Sina Fadhl says:

        the name “Sina” is common with Iranian men, and is taken from the famous Persian Scientist and Medicine man known as “ibn Sina” ( ibn means son and Sina is his father’s name). He was really famous during the Golden Age of Islam .. look it up in the internet you will find a lot to read.

        • The commenter before is right,in Occident we know him more as Avicena , he was the author of the first Medicine ”textbook” /manual in the 11th century that started to be used in the western medicine in the 17th century in France!!!!!!!But he was a genious, he dealed with almost any thinking domain possible.You really need to check him out.About your concern regarding whether it was or not a Spanish name ( Spanish=from spain , hispanic=everyone who speaks spanish), YES , it is very common to put the article ”la” in front of a girl name when you want to refer to a girl in particular(and the masculin article”el” for reffering a male).So when I talk to someone about my friend Cristina , I would say ”LA Cristina did this and that” or ”El José did the other”……..So , your friend’s caucasian mom might have had spanish roots!!!!!!!

          • The word LA or El is similar to THE. For example if I say the boy or the girl I would say in Spanish la niña or el niño. Also I could use the word LA or EL when referring to objects like a car or house. For example if I say the house or the car I would say la casa or el carro.

  12. Naz Jaffal says:

    Great site and so far very clearly explained; but one question – why are the above letters to be pronounced as if they have the vowel UNDER the letter ( i.e. – ‘e’ sound )…is this how Persian letters by default are to be pronounced?

  20. Hi All, I’m a native persian/Dari Teacher, been teaching over Skype for two years to all ages and abilities. Interested to learn Farsi/Dari quickly? Send me an email to schedule a lesson. Email:

  21. Salam!

    I assume most of you are trying to learn enough farsi to speak with friends or family that you’ve been trying to communicate with for a long time but the ‘language barrier’ (the dreaded barrier) gets in the way. I understand how that feels. I used to feel like that with farsi when I was younger. However, after having lived in Iran for a couple years and visiting it on several occasions(Infact I just got back a week ago from a one month visit), as well as growing up speaking it with my family, I can now communicate with friends and family in Farsi fluently. If anyone wants to speak the language, and understand culture so you can talk and connect with those you care about, it’s a lot easier then you think. Fortunately farsi is one of those languages where a lot of meaning is expressed directly rather then subtly, such as english.I also believe it’s much easier to learn then English. Therefore it’s very easy picking up the language. And there’s not an endless amount of words to learn. One must understand that 80% of conversations use only 20% of the vocabulary. Therefore, you only need to learn 20% of the words to speak and understand 80% of conversation! The ’80/20′ rule holds true in almost every language. In fact, I don’t even know how to read and write in Farsi(not anymore), yet I can still speak it fluently and communicate with those I care about. So if your interested in learning how to connect with us Persians, whether it’s friends, family, coworkers or because you want to visit Iran one day and see it’s amazing scenery, and culture, then I can give you what your looking for. Contact me at Best of luck.

    Very well done for explaining easily a language which is difficult to handle for western beginners! Usually one can be scared to engage in studying a complete new language from zero and this site helps to not give up…as more people are able to understand the beauty of farsi it’s also useful for iran and iranians as well

  23. Its a great site. Happy to have found it. I am starting to go through it. I hope and believe that its going to be rewarding experience. :) Thanks Hassan :)

  24. سلام خیلی ممنون
