Children have more chances of being successful with their learning when their teachers and parents work together. Everything you do with your child during the day could be used as an opportunity to improve their Persian learning.
Reading books at home with your children helps them to pick up new Persian words.
Best Farsi Learning Resource!
Here are our 5 top tips:
1. Picture book time
This method can open up a whole new world to young children learning Persian. Choosing the right and suitable books can be tricky, but it is important to understand the benefits of having this one-to-one interaction with your child. Picture books provide parents and children with an obvious reason for switching from their home language to speaking Persian. Parents who lack confidence in Persian find that the fixed text of a picture book is a useful prop.
2. Songs and rhymes
A fun way to pick up words in Persian, through repetition of rhymes and songs. You can put together a playlist with songs that can be played over and over again for your child to become familiar with Persian certain words.

3. Reading aloud
Practice reading the Persian picture book aloud and decide how you are going to bring the story to life. Introduce some of the new Persian words before reading the book and be prepared to whisper translations for difficult words until your child gets used to them!
4. Persian corner or Persian table
You can set up an area of the house that provides a focus for anything related to Persian sessions: games, a mini-library of picture books, displays of Persian culture such as pictures and flags, displays of drawings, home-made books, or craftwork.
5. Celebrate family birthdays and festivals
Making birthday cards is a fun activity. In fact, birthdays and family festivals are good occasions to give small shows and to play games with family and friends who also speak Persian.
It is essential to have fun while helping your child learn the Persian language.
