    This is the best website for Persian the I’ve found. For me personally its better than rosetta stone. You break it down and the practice work is perfect. I love it and so grateful for your dedication to making it accessible to people like myself.

    I was just wondering what does it mean when you had written “accepts all six vowels”?
    Nonetheless this site has helped me a lot i use it everyday even made a notebook for the notes i take from your lessons.
    You have made a great site. I thank-you a lot for this.

      Hi Aiman

      ‘accepts all six vowels’ means the ‘letter in question’ can be pronounced using all six vowels.

      ba be bo
      ba bee boo

    Thank you very much for putting such an effort into this website. I stopped learning Persian ten years ago although I am from a Persian-speaking background because I found it challenging to understand the grammar and admit that a loss of motivation played a big part in it. Your step by step approach to teaching each letter on its own really facilitates it to grasp it and the attached pronounciation audio is much appreciated. Your website is the best substitute for us language learners who have a tight schedule and decide to learn the language using online resources. I will definitely recommend this to my friends who will highly benefit from this. Again as many have mentioned previously: a big thank you. This is the best Persian Online Resource I’ve seen by far.

    I’ve really been enjoying this website! I was wondering if there was anyway to desynchronize the pronunciation recordings? Maybe it’s just my computer but they always play simultaneously when i click more than one, which makes it difficult to focus on the one I intended to listen to.

    Thank you very much for putting such an effort into this website. It is very helpful and useful for me. The only problem for me so far is because i am from an arabic speaking background, i get confused with the prononciation of the alphabet. for example the letter : ح sounds like ها :(…. how can i memorize this without getting confused :(

    I mastered all the Spanish vocabulary in a week that we was to be taught over a month so I’ve started working on this during Spanish class and getting extra help from an Iranian friend from that class. It feels like I am progressing so fast with the help of your excellent lessons.
    Thanks for making such a good website.

    Dear hassam sir,
    Salam 안녕하세요 good morning namaste…
    This is the best site to learn farsi in easy way and efficiently.
    I met this site. Thanks a lot .
    I need the guidance at this chapter. I have a query I think I could understand all the six vowels with the some small words with their respective correct pronunciation. But I found difficulty when I wanted to right with my mobile’s farsi keypad. I couldn’t write the first three vowels with the electronic keypad I.e. ba be bo.
    But there was no difficulty to understand the same while writting on note book.
    Except these above three vowels I can write easily.
    Please provide me guidance.
    Looking for your favor.
    Have a nice day..
    Khoda haffiz 안녕히계세요 good bye namaste.

    Dear aghaye Hassan,
    thanks for your lessons. Just please explain. The title of first lesson is “Persian Lesson 1 – The Alphabet, Short Vowels, B, P, T Letters”. But at the beginning of this lesson we read “Last week, we studied long vowels with the help of three letters B, P, T …”. Is it true or mistake?

    • J G Hunter
      September 30, 2013 @ 5:30 pm

      It is not a mistake. Last lesson was long vowels, this is now lesson 3 and long vowels was done in lesson 2. Short vowels was lesson 1.

  40. J G Hunter
    September 30, 2013 @ 5:30 pm

    You need to correct no 7 here on lesson 3, I don’t think you meant to include all the vowel renderings of the letter just when you were introducing it.

    Firstly, let be express my gratitude for your time in creating this website. However I am still unclear as to the succession of letters when writing words. I understand that sentences are written from right ro left. But are the words expressed the same. For example if I wish to express the name, “Mercedes” in Farsi, would it read and be written from right to left as well, as “sedecreM”? Do proper nouns begin with the capital letter as in English? Or the end of the noun? I hope I have posed my question well enough that you understand what I am asking. Thank you, Sir.
