    I’m having trouble with sentence 3. I tried listening to it a number of times, but I’m able to make out only the first 3 words – ‘man par sal…’. Help please?

      Hi, A. I don’t know if anyone responded to you previously, but sentence 3 sounds to me like “Man parsal du kote qahvei dashtam.” I hope this helps.

      it’s ‘man parl sal do kot e ghavehi ra dashtam.’

      Second sentence is ‘Man chehel o seh toop ra in hafteh forukhtam.’

    Birgit, what is the matter with you? If you don’t like the course, find another one. Geez!

      I totally agree Debora. If Birgit is not able to handle a simple website or even her own computer it is really not Hassan’s problem.
      Maybe we should just accept that someone offers such a great opportunity (and for free one might add) to learn a language, in a way that he considers most effective. There are different learning styles and people so it may not work for everyone as well but that is surely not Hassan’s fault.
      I am afraid though, this is a typically German characteristic, the nagging and always finding fault… ;) I am allowed to say that because I am German and I can nag very nicely, too.
      I am very happy with the website, it works great for me. You are doing an awesome job Hassan.

        I also agree, ladies. I found Birgit’s message to be quite demanding to fit his needs rather than an offering of constructive criticism and his concerns. I have found Hassan’s method of teaching very effective, and I am just so incredibly thankful that he has put his time and effort to offer it for free.

    I’ve been following your program for a month now, and have made substantial progress. I feel that your lessons are fantastically structured, and are much better than some of the other farsi resources that I have purchased. I am disgusted by the letter from Birgit. She sounds like an ungrateful child for criticizing a wonderful and free resource so harshly. The way you handled her letter proved what a great teacher you are. Kheyli motchakiram for you lessons agha! I will continue to follow your program, and hopefully in the future be able to express my gratitude to you in farsi.

    hello…i started to read the messages you received from your students, people who follow your lessons, by the time i got to the end of the second message i lost interest, learning a language takes time, i remember how difficult it was for me to learn the alphabet and now i can not imagine i can do the homework you prepare for us each lesson, i don`t think you should change anything in the way you are teaching us and the structure of the lessons, to learn a language takes time and i am very satisfied with the amount of new words you are presenting to us each lesson, too many new words can confuse me and make me mix them up, i still barely understand what my boyfriend is talking about when he speaks farsi, but as much as i want to learn faster and know many many words, i just know that learning farsi won`t happen over night, but in two years i know i`ll be very familiar with the language, and yes, some audible words i can not hear them, but that`s ok, it`s not the end of the world, i guess i couldn`t hear around 10 words out of 200, for me it works perfectly and when i`ll b able to read and speak fluently i`ll enjoy the poems you prepare for us every lesson…thank you for everything, i am just so happy that i can learn this language from such a good and smart teacher, thank you again :) , Larisa from romania

      The lessons are all already written, so the only thing you can do now is just learn them at your own pace. Learning a language is not a race, as long as you make it to the finish line you’re fine.

    Hassan, I don’t know if you still look at the messages on your lessons, but I thought I would just let you know how much I like them! Thank you for the effort you have expended in putting these lessons up. I especially like the audios for my pronunciation, and the “useful drills.” I have been learning Persian from a friend, but she has little time, so your lessons have become the bulk of my learning for now. Thanks, Kim
