1. Read as much as you can
Listening is closely related to speaking, reading is closely related to writing so our number 1 tip for improving your Persian writing would be to read as much as you can! This will help you improve your Persian vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and show you there are many different ways to communicate ideas. For example: If you need to write a description of a house or a bio of yourself, a good idea is to read some other bios or house descriptions, from books, magazines, the internet, brochures, or whatever source you can think of. Actually, after having read others, then you can attempt to write your own and you’ll realize it’s much easier than trying to write without any previous input!

2. Keep a Persian dictionary
3. Brush up your grammar
Even though you don’t have to “study” grammar, your Persian writing will improve a lot if you work on grammar exercises. Also, please remember that grammar is more important when you write than when you speak because it is usually more formal and more structured.
4. Check your spelling before and after writing
How do you feel when you read something full of spelling mistakes in your mother tongue? Poor spelling can spoil an otherwise interesting piece to read, and we usually write for other people to read what we’ve written.
5. Keep a diary in Persian
It will make you write every day to turn writing Persian into a routine activity. furthermore, you are “writing to yourself”, which can make you feel liberated and satisfied. You don’t need to write elaborate sentences, actually, you can keep them as simple as you want.

6. Learn how to expand your basic sentences into more elaborate ones
There are five basic sentence structures in Persian:
- Subject – Verb (سینا درس می خواند )
- Subject – Object – Verb (من سیب دوست دارم)
- Subject – Adjective – Verb (او خوشحال است)
- Subject – Adverb – Verb (این گل ها همه جا هستند)
- Subject – Noun – Verb (من دانش آموز هستم)
Here are a few examples of how you can expand sentences:
- دوست صمیمی من همیشه در خانه درس میخواند و خوشحال است
- پدر من یک معلم هست و در مدرسه درس می دهد
7. Learn how to organize a paragraph
A useful way to improve your Persian writing skills is to start your paragraphs with a topic sentence. For example, a sentence that explains what you are going to write about. Continue with supporting sentences. For example, sentences that provide more information about the topic. Finish with a conclusion. For example, it is generally a summary of the ideas developed in the body of the paragraph. Please learn how to make transitions between paragraphs to signal relationships between ideas so as to create a fluent body of text.
8. Write an outline
Even in a very simple piece of Persian writing, you have to keep some kind of organization to convey the message you want in a clear orderly way. Actually, there are many different ways to write outlines and these have much to do with the way you organize things in your mind.
9. Tell someone to read what you’ve written
A teacher, a tutor, a native speaker: whoever masters the Persian language and can help you understand and correct whatever mistakes you may have made both in grammar or spelling and also in the way your paragraph text has been organized.
Writing in Persian is not really something you can achieve immediately, but with hard, efficient work and gradual improvement, you should definitely get there. Start writing very simple sentences and then please get the challenge to write more elaborate pieces. Just give it a try!
