So far, we have learned eight letters as far as the alphabet is concerned. Do you remember the letters? Excellent! Now, pronounce them again before we proceed.

Remember that a building will remain strong if it has got a strong foundation. The more you try to learn these basics, the more fluent you will be with the rest of the lessons. Don’t be so hasty to learn complete words and sentences at this stage. You will find yourself fluent very soon.
Today, we are going to learn some more letters. Ready? Let’s begin.
9- – this letter has no English equivalent. Do you know the pronunciation of ‘J’ in Spanish words like Juan Gonzales? Perfect! So, this letter is called /khe/. /kh/ as /j/ in Spanish Juan, and /e/ as e in set. Need help? Click here.Khe
Like other letters, when combined with the vowels, it may be pronounced as .
Click here to listen.All Khe /da:l/
This letter has only one form. When combined, it may be pronounced as . Need help? Click here.All /da:l/ /za:l/

13- , this is called / ze/. /z/ as in zebra and /e/ as in set. This letter has only one form too. When combined, it may be pronounced as .All Zaal
Note: as you have noticed, these two letters, and , when combined with vowels, have the same pronunciation. That is to say, these two letters have the same pronunciation but different functions. For some words we must use while for others we have to use instead. For the time being, you don’t need to worry about these issues at all. Currently, all you have to do is learn the letters as you are being told. That’s all.
All right. Click here if you still need to listen to the names of the today’s letters, that is from number 9 to number 13.Khe to Ze

Number 5 and 10 are very confusing for me in USEFUL DRILL IN LESSON 4. . I thought the answer is both 0 to those number,can someone explain to me how did that happen. I thought when it is /I:/ sound it should have the combination form. Sorry im just a begginer, so im still catching up, im from philippines, I just really want to study persian language for more knowledge, thank you. Good day. And more power to this site.

Also the /za:l/ and zaal confused me too. Maybe because the noted that it should be /ze:/ or zaal . Which one is the correct pronounciation for this, thank you

Thanks a lot for pulling together such a practical and effective learning website.
A interesting finding from my 4 lessons in Persian: my mother tongue is Mongolian (the traditional vertical alphabet) and i am surprised by how Mongolian shares many common rules in pronunciation and writing (as far as i can tell now) with Persian.
Would love to know if anyone else has knowledge or leaning Mongolian and Persian ?
