    Dear Sir,
    Thanks again for creating this wonderful and very helpful website on Farsi learning. I daily spend some time here and i have found that Farsi is not that difficult as i thought especially becuase the way this website has been presented. It starts from very initial level and in each new lesson we have a new thing to learn.
    I want to ask you a question , how many vocabulary words do one has to learn in order to be effective at Farsi language for eg. 3000 or 4000 words ?? and where can we find the list of those words becuase the dictionay normally has thousands of words in it and we dont know which one is more important to learn than the others.
    Thanks & Regards

      haven’t heard mazi qareeb. but it makes sense (although not common in Iran. maybe it’s common in Afghanistan or Tajikistan? i don’t know)

        در پاکستان ما حال کامل را گفتہ ایم ماضی قریب،
        In Pakistan we call Past perfect as past (recently) passed. Qareeb = recent
        Brother Hasan is my sentence correct for the sentence “in Pakistan we call present perfect past passed ?”

    thanks to your explanation. but I think the requetted one is mistake, please check it out..

    which means – you have seen.
    /did/ + /he/ + /æst/ = /dideh æst/ its mistake..
    which means he/she has seen.

    /did/ + /he/ + /im/ = /dideh im/
