Today, we are going to learn something a bit different and that is the Persian calendar.
Today, we are going to learn the name of the seasons and the months in Persian. Probably, you will find the words a little bit difficult to remember since they are new words. But, don’t be afraid! You can do it!
Let’s start with the seasons first.
As it is the case in most other places, we have four seasons in Iran. The year starts with spring and ends with winter.
Spring starts on March 20. So, winter ends one day before it!
So far so good? Good!!
The four seasons are as follows:
Spring = /bæha:r/.
Summer = /ta:besta:n/.
Autumn = /pa: i:z/.
Winter = /zemesta:n/.
Each season has three months.
The months of spring or /bæha:r/ are:
The months of summer or /ta:besta:n/ are:
The months of autumn or /pa: i:z/ are:
The months of winter or /zemesta:n/ are:
I am sure you will learn them fluently if you review them from time to time.
There is one more thing I need to tell you and that is about the days in each month.
Unlike in western countries, the days of each month in Persian calendar are more easier to remember (at least I think so!).
The first six months (spring and summer) have 31 days.
The next five months have 30 days.
And finally, the last month has 29 days.
I hope it was not difficult!
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 English 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 present continuous tense).
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.
