10. Don’t expect to be perfect!
We have a question, can you remember when learned to ride a bicycle? Did you ride perfectly and without problem from the first time you sat on the seat? In fact, when learning a foreign language, expect that you will make mistakes, and don’t be embarrassed by them!
9. Work on developing an “ear” for Persian
Please remember that language is first and foremost oral communication. In fact, a written alphabet is merely a collection of symbols used to represent the sounds of the language, and cannot be expected to capture every nuance of sound and intonation. Try to develop a “good ear” for Persian. An easy and fun way to do this is by listening to Persian music, watching Persian movies, or watching Persian TV.
8. Practice SPEAKING!
The only way to learn to speak Persian is by actually SPEAKING. You can study for years, and master all of the Persian grammar rules, but unless you actually practice speaking, you will never speak well. When you are practicing speaking, please remember to do it out loud, at a normal conversational volume.
7. Be consistent
To really learn a new language takes time and commitment. Actually, consistency is by far the most important factor. If you can devote a solid 15 or 20 minutes a day, nearly every day, you will be far more successful than if you “cram” for an hour or two, but only sporadically.
6. Talk to yourself
When learning a new language, it is common for listening skills to develop more rapidly than speaking skills, leaving the learner in the unfortunate situation of being able to understand, but unable to answer. A great and helpful way to surmount this problem is to talk to yourself as much as possible. Because there is no one else around you and you won’t be weighed down by the inhibition that so frequently burdens the beginning language student.

5. Use flashcards
One of the best tricks we can give you is to make and use flashcards. Make cards that are small enough to easily carry with you, and write the English on one side and Persian on the other. Be sure to ALWAYS have some flashcards with you. This way, you can use your “wasted” time (standing in line, riding the bus, waiting for class to start, waiting for your friend, etc.) and turn it into productive study time. Even if you only have a few minutes, you can use it to study a few flashcards.
4. Label your surroundings
Make labels for things all over your home. For example, دیوار (wall), در (door), میز (desk), etc. Remove the labels only after you have mastered the Persian vocabulary.
3. Be patient
In fact, progress in language learning does not follow a straight-line graph. You cannot expect to make the same amount of progress in learning, day after day, week after week. Maybe, you find yourself struggling at times, seeming to make no progress. Don’t let this discourage you. It is normal to reach plateaus in your Persian learning progress. If you find yourself “stuck” try spending time going back, learn and reviewing things that you already know well. Probably this will help prepare you to break through to the next level.
2. Find a partner
Try to find a native Persian speaker who can be your conversation partner. Undoubtedly, this can be your greatest asset, and perhaps you can also provide assistance to your partner in your native language.
