The Persian Alphabet

Cyrus the Great
Persian is read from right to left and consists of 32 letters. Some of the letters have small and big forms, just like A / a in English, while other letters have only one form. Persian also doesn’t have vowels per se, but uses six sounds recognised as vowels that are written under letters to make them readable. This reference page should help you with memorising the Persian alphabet. For further explanations be sure to review Easy Persian Lesson 1 – The Alphabet.

Persian Alphabet = Alefba ye Farsi

To help you memorize the letters easily, I have presented it with a song. I hope you will like it. As far as I remember, there is no Persian alphabet song. So, I have made it by myself!!

If you have access to some studio and can make this song more professional with music, please do it and send your work to me. I will share it with others right here. Thanks for your cooperation.

Feel free to save or share this music.
