1. Find a Persian-speaking Conversation Partner
First of all, it’s important to find native Persian speakers to practice with. Leaners who are living around Persian speakers may be able to find informal opportunities to chat with neighbors and their Persian friends. Joining a community can be a great way to get to know people informally. Another option is enrolling yourself in online classes that offer Persian courses. If that isn’t an option, consider hiring a private Persian tutor. A lot of learners find and meet with tutors online via Skype.
2. Practice using Persian with the people you have met
Please try to engage in actually speaking the language if possible. If you are doing this online, there are several apps out there that will help you communicate freely with native speakers. If you like, you can ask other people online which app will work best for them.

3. Make Sure To Listen As Well As Speak
When practicing with a native Persian speaker, try to balance your listening and speaking. Also, it’s a great idea to prepare some questions in advance so that the conversation will flow back and forth. If your conversation partner asks you a question and you answer at length, you can always turn the question back to your partner by asking, نظر شما در این مورد چیست؟ “What do you think about this?” or شما چطور؟ “How about you?”
4. Practice shadowing native speakers
Shadowing is a technique where you listen to someone speaking the Persian language and then repeat what they said aloud as clearly as you can. And please don’t worry about repeating things perfectly, just try to repeat as much as you can as quickly and clearly as you can.
5. Record Your Conversation Practice
The recording is a great way to get the maximum benefit from a conversation with a native Persian speaker. In fact, when you listen again, you can evaluate your own pronunciation and notice areas where you need to improve. You can also review the content of the conversation, take notes on new Persian vocabulary or misunderstandings, and prepare questions for the next meeting.
