    Hi! I noticed you said there is no English equivalent to “zhe,” but the sound occurs in the English words leisure and pleasure (I’ve had this brought up when teaching Russian, so I hope it still applies here). This is a great site, by the way! I appreciate the work you’ve put into it!

    There’s a spellingerror in “These are the Latin -based Persian that enable you communicate with Persian-speaking people”. I recon it is meant to be “These are the Latin -based Persian letters that enable you to communicate with Persian-speaking people”

      Hi. I’m sorry but I have to write this to you. Before you go criticising other people for their incorrect spelling, don’t you think it would be a good idea to make sure that your spelling is perfect first?!

    There’s an equivalent for Persian “zhe” in Serbo-Croatian words like “zaba” which means “frog” or “zurnal” which means “journal” or “zivot” which means “life”.

      Same in Russian, except “zivot” means “stomach”. Kind of a funny yet true association..

    I am a little puzzled here, I am Arabian and I find some differences between the letters like ز with three dots. What are major differences between Arabic letters and Persian ones?

      Aroosakam(عروسکم) means “my doll”
      aroosak(عروسک)+am (م)=aroosakam(عروسکم)
      doll+my=my doll
      * am==>my

    It means “doll” in Farsi. Although we also use the same term for stuffed animals, it’s generally identified as a doll.

    aroosak = doll

    -am = first-person possessive, my

    “my doll”

    Hallo, Mr Hasan I’m very very enjoyable in this course, since two languages I could improve my english and in addition I get new language, tha’s Persian Language, I’m interested to the Persian due to the relationship with the Siite religion, I convert from Sunnite to Siite since 1996, but I was proudness to The excelency Ayatullah Ruhullah Khomeini in 1979, the first time, I heard the Islamic revolution in Iran, I was proud of him, but at that time no interest at all to Siite religion, however when the Sect of Ja’far Shodik, and this the Sect was one the outsider of the five Sects, Those are Maliki, Hanafi, Syafei and Hambali. Suddenly, I remember the holy books of Christiant those are Matius, Lukas, Markus, Yohanes and Barnabas was rejected by the majority of Christians and I tried to find it and bougth it and read, I was supprised because in the content, the God is ALLAH and the Prophet was Isa as with the result, I had conclusion, that the sect of Ja’far Shodik might be close to the truthness or the truth must be in Shiite Religion. So, with this clonclusion, I with my other friends looked for the teacher to discuss this matter and we found the teacher who already converted to Shiite in advance, even his name never use by Shiite followers. This is as a trigger to be more interested in learning, sometime in my deep feeling Is it possible before I pass away, I could come to Persia to visit the tomb of Imam Reza a.s (blessing of God upon him) and meet and talk to Persian People using persian language. Thank u so much for your attention.

    Best Regard,
    Tasripin Adiwijaya

    Your website is very helpful and I hope to learn good Persian in few months.
    In Lesson number 4, section 18, Zaad the pronunciation link (All Zaad) given should be corrected to read as “All Zaad”.
    You have written it as All Zaal.

    Many thanks fro the great site.

    真是很奇怪,为什么有那么多的字母形状不同却是同一个读音。i’m really surprised, why are there a lot of different letters with the same pronunciations?
