Grammar Lessons

The following 32 lessons will help you learn the basics of the Persian language. They have been designed to allow you to learn vocabulary, grammar, spelling and pronunciation simultaneously at a steady pace. If you are unfamiliar with the Persian alphabet, I recommend that you first complete the ‘alphabet’ section before approaching these lessons. Once you have completed all 32 lessons, you may continue to the next section and learn colloquial Persian.

Each lesson consists of three parts. The first part, the “grammar note”, teaches you a new topic in Persian grammar. The second part, the “interactive vocabulary guide”, helps you review what you learned in the grammar note but also expands your vocabulary through examples. The third part is a test in which you need to answer questions using an on-screen Persian keyboard. There is no need to worry if your test score doesn't look good in the first round. You can retake the tests as many times as you like.

To begin, navigate to the first course using the content tab on the left. Good luck!
