Language Learning Tips[edit]

If you are an English speaker, the chances are that you don't have many opportunities to speak Farsi. This is unfortunate, as one of the most important ingredients into learning a language is conversing in that language. It produces fluidity in speech and builds vocabulary and grammatical knowledge. It also develops the skill of understanding the language, which is a very different skill altogether. One way to overcome this obstacle is to talk to yourself in Farsi, but very slowly, to make sure that you have the correct grammar and pronunciation. As you progress in the courses, you should speed up the pace. To achieve understanding skills, you could listen to tapes or you could listen to movies with English subtitles to make sure you are getting the correct meaning of the sentence.
