About Course

This course targets those learners who have a small understanding of the Persian language and orthography. To start this course you need to pass A1-1 and A1-2. In the previous courses you have learned most of the alphabet letters and their sounds, and you have learned many examples and a wide range of new words.

A1-3, includes (34) instructional videos for four lessons (7 hours and 48 minutes), one video about four notes, a pdf file of your homework, four pdf files of the notes for each lesson, and a pdf file as your final exam.

In this course you add these letters to your list: ح، خ، چ، ف، ق، ه، ی which are written as y, h, gh, f, ch, kh, and again h in English or what is known as Finglish (Farsi sounds in English letters) and they sound /j/, /h/, /q/, /f/, /č/, /x/ and /h/ in IPA (international phonetic alphabet). Grammatically you learn YES/NO questions, WH questions with what (چیست/چیه), where (کجا), and who (کی) and learn how to answer them with This/that/here/there. You learn the names of family members and how members are related to each other. You will be able to talk about your family then, introduce yourself, and your family, and talk about their names, jobs, and others.

This course also teaches you how to use possession in Persian, not only using the famous Ezafe construction, but also using possessive adjectives which stand alone, those which are dependent, and also using an Arabic construction مالِ meaning the property of. So, make yourself ready to start and close the possession topic in Persian once and for all.

Two new verbs, Eat (خوردن) /xordan/ and Hear (شنیدن) /šenidan/ are taught here: how to conjugate them in present tense, positive and negative forms, for first, second, and third person singular and plural.

In Lesson twelve (12) there is a video ‘009-Lesson twelve-Revision’ which, as the name suggests, reviews the previous lessons. There are two exercises in this video in one of them you have to speak (ex.10) and record your voice and in the other, you have to use Persian keyboard (on your phone or PC). You can send these files directly to me at persiancampus@gmail.com. I will check them and leave my comments on them and send them to you.

The course comes with a copyable pdf file as your homework, including those pages you need to complete or do some exercise before the next sessions.  Each lesson comes with a pdf file that is on the notes we took in the class. Besides, a pdf file with three audio files is also attached under the topic ‘Final Exam’. This is where you can test what you have learned in this course. You can check your answers with the answer key at the end of the exam or after completing your homework and your final test, you can email them directly to me at persiancampus@gmail.com. I will check, correct, comment on them and send you back the files. One of my strongest recommendations is to do this. You will, however, undoubtedly take patience into consideration as you wait for my email.

The same as other courses that we had, in this course I made two listening sources ready for you, one story and a poem. Make sure you listen to them as much as you can.

The videos are labeled so that you can follow them easily, step by step, and not miss anything. Please make sure that you watch everything and you don’t skip any videos.

Learning a new language is fun but it also takes a lot of endurance and persistence. You might feel worn out and believe that your pace is too slow. But learning a language is not about speed, it is about quality. The initial steps are always slow and difficult, but as soon as you get past this stage, you will notice that you are moving forward more quickly. And I will be by your side through every stage, no matter how big or tiny, easy or difficult they are going to be. Welcome on board, enjoy your travel, and let’s learn beyond Persian.
