We have grown up without really getting comfortable with foreign languages. So what can be done now to make Persian our strength? Why don’t we learn from kids only, the right mantra to learn any language. The moment a child is born we start speaking to him/her, mostly to soothe him/her and to shower our love on him/her. As they grow, we start talking to them more frequently showing them the light, the fan, their tummy, their nose. Babies gently begin to memorize these words and also understand their meanings. When they turn a little older, they start calling things and objects around them by their name.
Gradually progressing from one word, they learn to speak the whole sentence and they actually learn all this by constantly listening to us, if we are conversing in Danish then they’ll learn Danish, if English then English, Persian then Persian.
