listen to the podcasts
While on a coffee break, while driving, while running – download the podcast and listen along with its easy-to-follow pace. The lessons are designed to be enjoyable to listen to so that you can listen to them over and over again and learn Persian casually and comfortably! Each podcast lasts about 15 minutes each and covers a different topic that can be used in conversational Persian. These podcasts are always free - you can download or stream them from the website, as well as find them on our itunes channel.
purchase the bonus materials
The podcasts will always be available to download for free, but to enhance the learning experience, as well as to support the site, we encourage you to purchase the premium learning package available for each lesson. These include three things:
1) PDF Lesson Guides: These provide simple explanations for each of the words learned in the podcast, as well as a listing of the vocabulary learned in each lesson with the words spelled out phonetically in English AND in Persian, and exercises to test your knowledge of the vocabulary. Download a sample of the Lesson 3 PDF Guide here.
2) Enhanced podcasts: The audio for the enhanced podcasts is identical to the regular podcasts with one important difference- the enhanced podcasts provide electronic ‘flashcards’ of each of the words learned, spelled out phonetically in English so that you can follow along with the lesson while listening. Download a sample of the Lesson 3 Enhanced Podcast here.
3) Bonus QUIZcast: Test your knowledge of the learned vocabulary with this simple quiz-podcast. The quizcast will repeat all the words learned in the lesson set to music so that you can listen to it over and over again throughout the week. Download a sample of the Lesson 3 QUIZcast here.
The bonus materials truly complete the learning experience, so you can put what you learn on the podcasts into practice, and refer back to them whenever you need a refresher. These are provided for only $1.00 per lesson (payment can be done through paypal, either with a paypal account or with a credit card). You will receive a password to download the bonus materials you purchased within hours of sending payment.
