Persian Reading and Writing for Heritage Speakers: Beginner

This course is specifically designed for Farsi speakers who have acquired basic competence in speaking and listening, usually from hearing and speaking it at home, but have very limited, if any, reading and writing skills in the language. If this describes you, then this course can help you to improve your grammar, reading, and writing in order to strengthen your overall Farsi proficiency. Learn the Persian alphabet, practice simple handwriting, and become familiar with the Persian keyboard. Through targeted reading and writing practice, learn basic sentence structures and verb forms. By the end of the course, you will have acquired reading, writing, and grammatical skills and built upon your speaking and listening competency.
