Hello everyone, how are you?
This is not my business! I am responsible for myself! Maybe they have done something wrong that are suffering like this! They are not part of my family! What is important is that I am fine! I shouldn’t touch them, maybe it is epidemic! I should ask my family to stay away from them! And so on.
We are all thinking about ourselves. We always think such things happen to people far from us. We do not know that one of them could be one of us.
Strange ice-breaker today?!
What am I talking about?
Brain Tumors, Breast Cancer, AIDS-related Lymphoma, Gastric Cancer, Hodgkin’s disease, Kidney Cancer, Liver Cancer, Lung Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Thyroid Cancer, Vaginal Cancer, and lots of strange names that we have never heard of. There are some people around us, who are suffering from such strange diseases. They do need hope to keep on living. At least, we can give them hope to fight for their life if we cannot help them with their hospital fees and the devices needed for their treatment. We can spend some time with them. We can be part of their life. We do not need to remind them of their disease. At least, we can keep them busy by words, memories, light activities and even by listening to them.
These people need us even if we do not know them. Let us help them keep walking.
What do you think?
Thanks to Louis from Belgium for sharing this image with us.
All right, as you remember, I told you last time to come back if you were a tailor!
Ok tailors, are you ready?!!
Today, we are going to learn some measures / units in Persian. Honestly, I do not know many of them in Persian! But we will try to remember as many as we can! Ok?
Let’s start with the simple ones!!Metr Santi metr
Square (for numbers) = /morab.bæ/.Moraba
Square (a part of streets) = /meida:n/.Meidan
Square (a four-angle shape in geometry) = /morab.bæ/.
Cube (a solid object with six equal square sides) = /mokæ.æb/.Moka ab
Cube (for numbers) = same as above!
How do you say ‘sugar cube’ in Persian?
It is wrong!
‘Sugar cube’ is simply /ghænd/ in Persian!
Easy, isn’t it?!
That’s why Persian is sugar!! Remember, Persian is not /ghænd/!!
By the way, if you happen to travel to Iran , you would see this /ghænd/ everywhere next to each cup of tea!! Enjoy your tea if you are in Iran !Ertefa Omgh
Ok, let us learn some shapes here before you know that my measuring knowledge is finishing!!Mosalas Mostatil Dayereh Beizi Makhroot Hendeseh
All right, please go to Useful Drills page to see some examples.
Not a perfect tailor yet?!! Come back next week to learn some UNITS.
I hope this lesson was useful.
See you next week!
