Best Farsi Learning Resource!
1. Read, read, read
Reading online Persian news or magazine is one of the best methods for picking up new Persian vocabulary and reinforcing your grasp of already-learned vocabulary. As well as increasing your feelings of the structure of the Persian language and the use of different lexis, it will provide you with a culturally interesting experience by reading around the current affairs of the country; something which is an integral part of new language learning.
2. Grab some flashcards
One study of Japanese students learning the English language found that encountering a word 10 times in context helped learners learn it—but the researcher noted that, maybe more than 10 repetitions needed to fully understand the word. Get a jump on your Persian vocabulary by making a set of flashcards and looking at them regularly.

3. Make sure to listen
A study from the University of New Zealand found that regular exposure to the sound of a new foreign language (regardless of whether you understand the words) helps you learn that language. Actually, listening to native speech can help familiarize you with the new sound patterns of the language you are learning. So even if the plot goes over your head, tune in to a Persian movie or listen to music.
4. Phone a friend
Having a friend who is like-minded in your motivation to master the Persian language can be a great opportunity to improve both yours and his/her grasp. To begin with, an hour of conversation a day, slowly Increase it to two hours, then three hours and so forth will gradually accustom your brain to switching into Persian and getting your head around Persian grammar, vocabulary, and sounds. Better still, if you have a friend or family member who can fluently speak your respective language, it’s a nice opportunity. Take advantage of this!
5. Download an app
If you want to become a language master, you need to practice every day. Several apps (many of them free!) offer vocabulary lessons that you can access on the go, so standing at the bus station or sitting around in a waiting room can become an educational experience.
