1. Learn three new words every day
Buy yourself a Persian dictionary, and every day choose five words to memorize and try using them in sentences. Choose a time to do this whenever you consistently have 5 minutes to sit down and look at the dictionary, perhaps after dinner or before bed. Write out a Persian word; say it aloud a few times; use it in two different sentences. Keep a notebook of the Persian words you’ve learned so you can go back and review them if you forget them.
You can make a game out of it and use colorful sticky notes to post the new Persian words around the house (maybe in the kitchen?) and also you can challenge other family members to help you remember the words and how to use them.
2. Practice in small portions every day
Continuous practice is so important.
Have you ever heard this phrase: practice makes perfect?
No matter what you want to learn, you should practice a lot to make progress. It doesn’t matter if you want to learn a musical instrument, do a sport play a game, or learn to knit.
If you don’t practice, you cannot improve your skills.
Well, if you want to learn Persian, that’s the same. The more you practice Persian, the better you will become!
This is clear to everyone, but…
Many learners don’t know that it is much more effective to learn Persian in small portions every day, instead of just for several hours at the weekend.
Actually, if you study twice a day for 30 minutes, that’s 7 hours a week.
If you only study one day per week, 7 hours in a row, that’s the same amount of time, but you won’t learn lessons nearly as much as if you had split the study material over several days.

3. Read aloud in Persian
It’s not enough to simply read Persian books or magazines. In fact, reading out loud helps you build accent, pronunciation, and most importantly, confidence. And confidence is a must if you want to improve Spoken Persian in the long run.
If you’re not sure how to pronounce a Persian word, the dictionary or the internet can help. Try reading a book to yourself, or to your parents or children, a chapter a day, and see how much easier it gets as you progress through the book.
4. Have fun speaking Persian
Most of us think that learning always involves effort, stress, and oftentimes anxiety.
Why do we think that?
Well, most have had negative experiences at school. This is always an unpleasant feeling. we are afraid to make mistakes and to embarrass ourselves.
So, usually learning is associated with negative feelings. That doesn’t have to be that way. Generally, when you find a way to learn and have fun, you often don’t even realize that you are learning. This is the most effective form of learning lessons.
If you have fun, you like to learn regularly.
5. Learn some facts about a Persian thing you like
Whether it’s a movie or poetry book, take up an interest in something whose origins are in Persian, and each day try to learn a few more facts or stories about it. You can participate in forums or online discussion groups or share your knowledge with your friends or family members.
You don’t have to adopt all of these tips in order to successfully improve Spoken Persian; even doing 2 or 3 tips on a regular basis will help you a lot.
