What You'll Learn

Farsi Persian Levels 1-2 includes all of Pimsleur Farsi Persian: 30 hours of spoken language practice and two hours of reading instruction. With this product you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary and eventually progressing to a mid-intermediate level of speaking, understanding, and reading Farsi Persian.

Every lesson contains an introductory conversation and isolated vocabulary and structures as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced. Emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension. At the completion of this course, you'll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future; you'll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary and experience the Farsi Persian language and culture with a deepening insight.

Reading lessons, which total about one hour per level, are designed to give you practice reading Farsi. You'll be reading words, phrases, and short sentences using familiar vocabulary as well as new vocabulary regarding useful topics such as food, travel, shopping, communication, and more. Reading booklets to be used with the audio lessons are also included in PDF format.

The Farsi Persian Language

Persian is the official language of Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. It belongs to the Indo-Iranian group of languages and is spoken worldwide by approximately 75 million people. Persian has three major dialects: Farsi (spoken in Iran), Dari (spoken in Afghanistan), and Tajik (spoken in Tajikistan). Dari and Tajik are considered a purer form of Persian - that is, they show less Arab influence - but all three dialects are more or less mutually intelligible. This course teaches Farsi Persian.
