Persian Lesson 12 – Compound Verbs in Simple Past Tense

Hello everyone, welcome back!

As you remember, we started learning simple past tense last week. From today, we are going to practice with this tense to make sure that it is clearly understood. Try to make the foundation of your building as strong as possible! To do this here, we need to practice a lot.

Last week, we learned that all infinitives in Persian ended with /nu:n/. Example: . We also learned that we’d have a verb in simple past tense by simply deleting from infinitives. Example: . Correct?

Then, we learned that we could combine verbs in simple past tense with subjective pronouns. Doing this, we found that we had to add something to the end of the verbs to match that verb with each pronoun. Example: + = . Clear?

All right. Now, let’s see what do we have for today.

Persian Lesson 11 – Simple Past Tense, How to make a verb in S.P.tense

Hello everyone, welcome back!

Last week we learned the subjective pronouns in Persian. I hope you had no problems with them. Let’s take a look at them again.

1- I = .

Man

2- You = .

Toe

3- he and she = .

Oo

4- it = .

Aan

5- we = .

Maa

6- You = .

Shoma

7- they = .

Anha

And .

Ishan

In learning a language, we normally begin with present tenses, like present simple tense (ex. I go to school every day) or present continuous tense (ex. I am writing a letter now). It seems quite natural, as these present tenses bring us less difficulty for other complicated ones. However, I am going to change this procedure a bit and I believe it will be more helpful.

Persian Lesson 10 – Review, Subjective Pronouns

Hello everyone, welcome back!

Let me start by wishing a wonderful Christmas followed by a very prosperous new year to all of you.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Now, let’s begin.

As you know, we have successfully completed part one that was learning the letters. Today, we are going to take a very short review from what we have already studied to make sure that everything has been clear.

So far we have learned that there are 32 letters upon which the Persian language is built. We also learned that to pronounce the letters, we needed to put some vowels on or under the letters. And you remember that we have six vowels: three long and three short vowels. Then we learned that sometimes we have to put an emphasis on some letters, which is called Tashdid. And sometimes, it happens very often, we stop or pause on some letters and this is called Sokoon.

Persian Lesson 8 – Letters /la:m/ to /va:v/

Hello everyone, welcome back!

Before we start, I would like to express my deep appreciation to all of you who have been sending me really warm messages during this time. The more feedback you send, the better insight I get, and this will help me organize the theme of the lessons better. Please keep on writing to me. I deeply hope this site is supportive. As I have told you before, I would be really happy just when I saw your progress. Please be kind enough to forgive me if I am not really able to respond to all of your messages.

Has everything been quite clear so far? If not, please let me know. Hopefully, we will complete part one next week. Then, we will take a very short review of what we have already learned before we start part two which will bring us the real work.

So far, we have learned 26 letters. As always, let’s see what we learned last week. Last week we learned these four letters: , , , . Click here if you need to listen to them once more.

As you know, practice makes perfect! Every week, along with each lesson, you are given some words to practice. I know that, as a beginner, you will find it difficult to read the entire words by yourself. Therefore, you are not asked to either read or write these words at this stage. Please do not try to pronounce these words on your own or you will remain in an insolvable confusion for good. All you have to do is identify the letters you have already studied. So, first go to the This week and study the new lesson carefully. Then click on the Useful drills button to get connected to this page. On this page you will find some words that seem quite stranger to you at the first glance. Nevertheless, you must at least be able to recognize the letters you have just studied on This week. And this is all I want you to do.

Persian Lesson 7 – Letters /fe/ to /ga:f/

Hello everyone, welcome back!

I hope you have studied the previous lessons well. As you know, we are so close to the end of part one, which is learning the vowels and letters. I request you to try hard to get fluent in recognizing the letters and pronouncing them with the help of the vowels if you haven’t done it before. After part one is over, we will begin to combine the letters to make single words. Then, we will start combining the words to make sentences. You see, we have got lots of things to do later. Therefore, we may not have enough time to come back to these basics again. That’s why I am asking you on and on to learn these basics first, which will enable us to move faster during our next lessons.
