I've heard in one of your posts that you can speak Farsi? Would you call yourself fluent? Do you tend to speak a more formal version of Farsi in real life or casual/informal?

Yes I am fluent and I speak mostly informal Farsi now, even though I began with learning formal.

Around 4-6 months - I was in Iran and hence why I picked it up really quick.

Being fluent in Urdu also gave you a leg up on most people that didn't know an Indic language. If the OP knows one he's quite advantaged in that regard.

There is a lot of videos on you tube too.
I think the most important thing is the motivation. For me, among other thing, it is wanting to understand the Khutbah in the Mosque I go to.

How long have you been learning Farsi for?

I started half a year ago, but I got stuck on the repetition, so I thought I should think out of the box, and then I found some youtube videos and phone apps with flashcards in order to increase my vocabulary. I think that is the right approach for me and also dedicating more time and focusing on Farsi. I am trying to learn Arabic at the same time, but that is a little easier because I had some Arabic classes 30 years ago. That also helped with the letters. I only had to do a brush up because I knew them from before. And then learn the few extra letters in Farsi that is not in Arabic.
