Tell your child to start whistling from now!!! There is a Persian story that says: In old days, a villager once wanted to go to a city for a short trip. Most of his neighbors asked him for a gift from the city. From among them, there was a lady who had a child. She gave 5 bucks to the villager and asked him to buy her child a whistle on his way back home. Holding the money tightly in his hand, the man said, “Go tell your child to start whistling from now!!” Some of you have asked for more materials so that they can learn Persian faster. Although I’d love to do that, it is not always possible for me to meet your increasing demands. The Late Ahmad Shamlu has a poem that says, “I could do a lot more if my daily needs allowed me”!! Like you, I have lots of daily troubles. You bet my troubles are far deeper and more breathtaking than yours. One day, you will know all about it. Anyway, to speed up your learning process, I am offering a new online course from now. This course is for dear members only!! (Although all of you are dear to me, the members will be dearer!!!) That is to say, Easy Persian has a Members’ Area now. As a member, you will get a personal page that helps you a lot reach your goals faster. This area is mostly focused on ‘daily words’ and is mainly based on daily media such as daily TV shows broadcasted from Iran, parts of Persian movies, Iranian radios, etc; and of course, Persian mp3! This is how it works:
- I give you a short TV show, for example, and you are supposed to watch it a couple times to see how many words you can clearly spot without my help.
- Then, I give you all the words and sentences you just heard (in written form).
- You watch the show again with the help of the words I gave you. We do this to improve your listening ability.
- I give you the English explanations or equivalents of the Persian words (written script).
- You work on it a bit to get to know the show better to improve / correct your understanding ability.
- At this stage, you try to translate the show with the help of my words / explanations.
- I help you with your translation.
- You correct your work based on my advice. (You may also correct my work based on your advice!)
- Homework. You should be able to use what you are learning! So, I choose some words or phrases for you to work on it. Do not panic! I will be with you as your loyal guide step by step!
- At the end of each lesson, you may send me your questions and I will do my best to help you. Your messages / questions will be my top priority.
- Some lessons will be done online in some voice chat rooms together. That is to say, we set a time to meet each other online and we will have a very nice class together. I am sure you will love it!
All right, that’s the work in brief for now. I will surely expand this course gradually based on your suggestions. You will have several lessons a month (6-7 lessons). It is big enough to keep you busy for sure!! However, as it is not an official class, you will have the choice to do it during your spare time. I think I am flexible, what about you?! All you need to do now is to place an order through the buttons below. Dear members, start whistling from now!!
