As a beginner language learner, in some ways, you are like a baby. Babies learn their language slowly through these stages:

  • First, they listen to the language.
  • Then, they start to speak.
  • Finally, they learn to read and write.

Tip 1: Listen to Persian every day

You can listen to Persian songs. This is an easy way to learn Persian for beginners and doesn’t take a lot of time. You may look up the lyrics of your favorite songs and check new Persian words to understand better next time you hear the song.

Watch Persian TV. Start watching the Persian news or series you have already watched in your own language. Maybe you not understand much the first time but don’t worry about that. Even if you understand only a couple of words, that is okay, you are only a beginner language learner. Watch it again and again. You will progressively understand more and more Persian words and sentences.

Watch Iranian films. You may find it easier at the beginning of the film to have subtitles in your language. Watch it again and again. Please try to look less and less at the subtitles, if any.
