    First, I would like to thank you very much for your invaluable services to us all through your website lesson. I recently started learning Persian. I am now in Lesson 7. So far, you have made it simple for me to grasp. Nevertheless, I found something a little bit confusing today in the Useful Drills 7. Questions numbers appear to be the same thing, except that the three number 2 /ga:f/ are detached and the three number 4 /ga:f/ are attached. but no explanation was given as to the diference between them. Please, I need your help in understanding the difference and why.

    I meant to say: “Questions numbers 2 and 4 appear to be the same…” Sorry.

    one is the small letter, the other one is the capital letter. Question number 4 should be find the small letter گ

      Thanks Joe for asking, and thanks Marie for answering! Well done!

      Both of you are right: there was something wrong up there! Number 4 was supposed to be small letter ‘gaf’, as Marie has mentioned. (It is corrected now)

      Thanks again
      (and pleas do it again!)

    • Understood. Thank you very much, Marie.

    Question: #5 says only 3 of the letters. What about Line 2, 4th word from right, what appears to be the 2nd to last letter? Is that not lower case /fe/? Thank you for your help!

      I guess it is a lower case /ghain/ ?

    Hmm, question 3 asks about the big (=ending) Kaf, and there is none of them in the text :)
    But the answer tells about the small (=initial) letter…

    The letter KAF is supposed to be found as a big letter in the text but I think there are only small letters KAF?

    Thank you for this website, it’s an amazing work and I’m glad to learn that great language!

    Dear Mr Hasan, when I did practice without seeing the answer, I was supprised, since No 3 the answer is 4 instead of 0 (zero), since my opinion the letter is big letter instead of little one. Please see the words, the big letter /ka:f/ not indicated in the words but the small letter /ka:f/, of course the are 4, aren’t there?. Best regards from naughty pupil.

      I’ve noticed that too. Are we both wrong?

    In reference to #3 I wonder how one is to know that the ka:f is big or small in the writing? When we look at the large and small ga:f in the sample, we clearly see the difference between the two. But to me all the letter ka:f in the writing samples look like small (no tail curving up at the end), but the one in question #3 looks like a big (tail curving up at the end). Please help me distinguish between the two. Thanks

    P.S. Awesome site, thank you!! :)
