Every one of us has a different learning behavior and a specific strategy for learning a foreign language. Often, it may help you to visualize things. Start to make drawings for words or difficult connections and if you can’t understand some aspects, start taking notes. It could be helpful and effective if you worked with various colors or index cards. Actually, that helps to nourish your imagination and draws your attention to what is important. Visualizations, display complex statements in a simple and comprehensible way and help you to understand better. And also they give you a better overview of your study matter. It may help you to divide the Persian grammar into small categories or groups, which you then indicate with different colors. Pick up a Persian text and underline the words with the correct color.

فعل ها: Verbs – red
صفت ها: Adjectives – green

4. Watch Movies

Watching movies is a popular way to improve your listening and even to improve your Persian vocabulary. Watching movies can be useful for learning in 2 ways. The first way is to use movies as part of your study. That means you watch a movie slowly and try to understand every single word with the subtitles and write down the new Persian vocabulary. The second way (and most common probably!) is to watch movies passively. This is not as effective and efficient but is still good to do if you are too tired to study.

5. Grant your brain a breather from time to time

After an intensive study period of 50 minutes to one hour, it is advisable to put all your stuff aside and take a rest. Don’t regard rest as “lost time”, because what you have learned needs to be processed before your brain can be filled with new information and learning material. Get some fresh air and open your window or go to your yard. Your brain needs oxygen to function efficiently and it will help you to concentrate again. Please remember to stay hydrated while studying!
