Thank you for these lessons. I am just starting lesson 2 but I am exited to go through all the lessons. I think this conversational system was what I was looking for. Good job!

Hi Leyla and Matt! Thank you so much for these great podcasts. I am a student at London University on a beginners' course in Persian. We have an excellent teacher who is very thorough. However, your conversational Persian lessons are bringing the language alive for me. I have purchased the bonus materials and that has made a big difference too - I totally recommend them. Please keep going - there are many of us out here who have no access to native Persian speakers and now we have a community at Chai and Conversation so we don't feel so isolated in our studies!!

Joanne, Thanks so much for your kind comments! And thanks so much with supporting us by buying the bonus materials- glad to hear they've been of use!

And yes, if you haven't already, join the facebook page as well- the 'community' is very much alive there!

Really awesome program! Accessible and highly informative. Learning a lot so far, thanks guys!

Thank you so much for these lessons! so professional and in nice, fun way to learn! I studied Persian since a while, but I still can`t speak, so I look foreword to learn simple phrases :)

Great podcast the only thing that could make it better is make some videos. Otherwise great podcast

Thank u so much for all the helps u provide us with. I am an Arabic native speaker but I live in USA, I feel it is such a great way of memorizing the pronunciations bcz it is so close to Arabic. I enjoy it too much. Keep going ... Thank U from my heart.

We need to speak too to get a grasp so how to do that except in front of a mirror.
