Salam! Khosh amadid!
Hello, welcome everybody!
For several months, I have promised many of you to do something. Thank you for being patient with me. You are my patience teacher!
What I am going to do refers to a kind of multilateral communication. Just be cool, the word is bigger than the job!
Many of you have been interested in having direct contacts with other visitors of this site. Probably, I have been disappointing in replying to you on time! To solve this problem, I am going to put a message board on this site, which will give you an opportunity to share views and ideas with other visitors directly, without having to wait for my delayed replies. You may leave a message or a contact address in that message board to receive reply from other friends. Optimistically, they will reply faster than I do! This message board is also a good place to find some native Persians as your pen pals or something. Please stick to the non-violence policy while enjoying such a direct tool!
Although I am, to much extent, anti censorship (in many cases!!), I will do my best to be absolutely honest in deleting useless messages whenever necessary! This will save you time in reviewing different messages! All right, let’s get back to our routine class.
I guess we have been considerably far from our normal classes for several weeks. Generally, students (not you!) like and welcome such opportunities (to escape from a class)!!
Today, we are going to learn the last section in Present Simple Tense, which is interrogative.
This is not something strange. You already know the word /a:ya:/. Put this word in the beginning of your sentences to ask others something!
Let’s see an example:
Does he go? = /a:ya: u: mirævæd/?
Note: you may simply delete the subject in your Persian sentence.
Was it difficult? Of course not!
Please do the Quiz first and then go to Useful Drills page.
1- Listen to the audio files first (preferably once). Repeat it for a couple of times. Write it down on a paper. Find their English equivalents. (Seen)
2- Find the Persian equivalent for the following words and make four sentences with each of them (one in simple past tense, one in present perfect tense using ‘for’, one in simple future tense, and one in past perfect tense).
To respect somebody
To make somebody laugh
3- Say these numbers in Persian:
4- Follow the examples, combine the letters, and make words using the given letters. You’ll have to change the big letters into the small ones whenever needed.
To hurt <= /zækh mi kærdæn/ < ==
Please go to Useful drills page to practice more.
Let’s write page is waiting for you if you want to learn and practice Persian writings.
See you next week!

The speaker in the Audio portion of the Quiz always speaks way too fast for me to pick up. I have been able to untangle only a very few of the sentences and phrases to date.
