  1. Sure ask anything and I will help. I don't know why this comment has been ignored here?
  2. Learning Farsi

    Can anyone write this sound in IPA? (e.g. /q/ "Arabic ق" or /ɣ/ "Arabic غ") This is the website with IPA sounds. http://www.internationalphoneticalphabet.org/ipa-sounds/ipa-chart-with-sounds/ And this is an IPA keyboard. http://www.internationalphoneticalphabet.org/html-ipa-keyboard-v1/keyboard/ It can be really confusing when it is written with a re-spell, as some of us aren't familiar with that.
  3. Any well-made materials for learning Persian?

    How much does it cost?
  4. I was reading this beautiful article (1) about how easy it is to learn Persian for someone with a europian language, however; it mentioned 3 draw-backs: 1-Arabic alphabet used in Persian. 2-Arabic loanwords. 3-Lack of opportunity to use it. Which -As a native Arab/Shia- should actually be an advantage, but as a native Arab bilingual with English, I am actually having a different situation while learning it; 1-English books usually use Latin letters to represent sounds of Persian, which is extremely irritating for me as the alphabet is actually an advantage for me and it allows me to understand those Arabic loanwords. 2-The structure of the language is more similar to English than to Arabic, which is why I want a book that teaches Persian from English. To sum this up; is there an English/Persian learning book that uses Arabic alphabet -when quoting Persian's language- more? === 1-http://www.pagef30.com/2008/08/detailed-explanation-of-why-persian.html
