Every student is different and what works well for one person may not work for another person.
But there are some general tips, and some steps you can follow to make learning Persian easier.
Best Farsi Learning Resource!
1. Go to classes
Most learners learn faster, remember more, and have more fun in a class. It isn’t important where the class is, but your Persian learning will improve if you do it with other people.
2. Visit a Persian-speaking country
You will only really start learning the natural language people speak if you visit a country where Persian is spoken.
Of course, if you can go to classes in a Persian-speaking country, then this is even better!
Please look for language schools in the country you want to visit.
If this isn’t possible, then a holiday in a Persian-speaking country is great, but make sure you speak Persian while you are there!
This is the big one. It is probably the most important.
If you don’t practice Persian, you are unlikely to remember it.
Set yourself challenges to speak Persian for a certain length of time each day, to use a certain number of new Persian words each day, or to listen to Persian TV, radio, or internet broadcasts each day.
This way you will improve more quickly.

4. Listen and read
Besides listening, read as much as you can in Persian.
Look up Persian words you don’t know, to increase your vocabulary. Try to guess them from the context. Your Persian dictionary may very well be your best friend 🙂
5. Don’t take the easy path
It is important that you repeat the things you learn so you don’t forget them. But it is also so important to try and learn new things.
If you have completed an intermediate class, please don’t do another class at the same level and push yourself to try a harder class.
Buy more difficult books. Try watching movies without English subtitles on.
In fact, All of these things will be difficult at first but because you are challenging yourself, you will learn more.
Why are you learning Persian?
If you have any reason to do something, it gives you motivation.
research has shown that motivation has the biggest influence on how well and how quickly students learn something!
So if you have a reason to learn, you will find learning Persian much easier than if you don’t have one.
So what is your reason?
