The fact is, reading is a very active process. It is true that the writer does a lot of work, but actually, the reader also has to work hard. When you read a text, you have to do some or all of these tips:
- please imagine a scene in your head
- try to understand clearly what the writer is trying to say
- agree or disagree with the writer

1. Read graded readers (easy readers)
These are books that are specially written for learners like you, for example, “Farsi Reading Bundle“. Although it can be difficult to find something as interesting as things written on social media or on the internet, in terms of learning the language, usually only learners who need to read for their exam or their work gain more from reading things written for graded readers. Some of the classic books like The Gulistan of Saadi also have the benefit of giving you a lot of knowledge about the literature, and culture of Iran in a short time.
2. read at the right level
You need to recognize your right level. Read something (books, news, novel, and…) that you may nearly understand. If you need to stop every three words to check the meaning in a dictionary, it is not interesting for you and it is clear that you will soon be discouraged.

3. Read the whole thing with no help
Although using a dictionary has been shown to help with both short-term and long-term learning of Persian vocabulary, the fact that using it slows reading down can stop some people from reading in Persian at all. Reading a whole book quickly through just for pleasure from time to time will help you remember how fun reading in a foreign language can be.
4. read regularly
Try to read regularly. read for a short time once a day for example 10 or 15 minutes. Fifteen minutes every day is better than two hours at the weekend. Fix a time to read and stick to it. You could read for 15 minutes when you go to bed, or when you get up, or in the evening.
5. Read and learn everything
It can be hard work but very satisfying to get to the end of a book knowing that you have learned every Persian word in it. Please make sure the book you want to read is easy enough and make sure that the vocabulary you learn is useful.
