Very little coverage for 4 lessons

A basic coverage should get the speaker up fast with introduction, numbers, transport, shopping. With 4 lessons, all that was done is introduction, and very repetitive. Definitely not value for money. And.. it's always about Are you Amercian?

Pimsleur Farsi

I have studied many languages using many different methods. I find this Pimsleur approach to be the mode engaging and helpful. People tall me that my pronunciation is very good. This is because of the very practical approach that these recordings are based on. I love it.

good start

it taught me some fundamental Farsi phrases and broke down what each word meant. I'm excited to learn more and will likely buy the next unit

Almost perfect

This is an excellent companion for learning Persian (Farsi). It’s much better than my experience with Rosetta Stone. Unfortunately it teaches the written form of speech rather than the spoken. Since this is a strictly speaking and listening course it would be less confusing if we were taught the spoken form of the language. Other than that, this has been an amazing tool!

Want to learn Farsi? Start here!

Best way to learn driving to and from work ! Segments are designed to be listen to at 25-40 minute intervals. About 6 days of material ( recommended to only listen to one a day). Read a few papers on the method of how they re-introduce material to you at different minute intervals. It’s the idea of spaced interval testing and the academic research has shown outstanding results. I’ve been trying to learn Farsi for years! (Over 8 years) There aren’t very good programs out there for speaking and pronunciation but this one is amazing ! It breaks down words into individual syllables. It’s similar to the principles of Anki Flashcards for space recognition. I learned more in a week and have retained more than I ever have in the last 8 years. Take it seriously when they ask you to repeat what the speaker says. Repeat EVERY single word the speaker says. Makes a huge difference. I know it takes up a whole book credit to listen and I wish it was longer but it is STILL worth it.

Awesome

Really liked it. The repetition is very helpful. My girlfriend is a native farsi speaker and she was very impressed with the material I learned in the first 5 lessons, especially my pronunciation. Thanks to Pimsleur! On to the next 5!

A convenient way to pick up Farsi

My children and I enjoy learning Farsi together. The children will listen as they play and I do my work.

Effective

In just a matter of days, I was speaking Farsi with my dad, who thought I would never learn his native tongue. It’s very basic, but it’s a very enjoyable method of learning while doing chores or driving. I repeat lessons so as to help with storing the info to memory. I’m in my thirties and it’s never too late to learn something new. Highly recommend.

Great way to learn Farsi!

Unit 1 is a great way to learn the basics. A lot of it is more for tourist conversation and I'm looking forward to learning more general conversation

Learned enough to scare my wife...

I bought this to start giving structure to the few words I understood, given that my partner is Iranian. It is a no nonsense get to work language course that gets straight to business and you start talking. This came as a bit of a surprise to the other dog walkers on those dark winter mornings as I came out of the shadows muttering greetings in farsi, but hey.



It is focussed at an American audience but other than that it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Learning Farsi very quickly

This book is great, I'm picking up the language very quickly and already I'm beginning to converse in Farsi and structure my own sentences

Very helpful language course

This is a very helpful language course using Pimsleur method which seems much more the way we learnt our native tongue. Especially helpful with Farsi to avoid danger of mispronunciation.

My Iranian friends are impressed with my progress and my pronunciation.

Slow down and teach us something useful

They are talking way too fast and it's impossible to keep up. Should also include more useful words to begin with.

A standard Pimsleur

For those looking for an audio course this is as good as they get, the Pimsleur series. It won't help you read or write but you will get good pronunciation help and the sound and structure of the language.

Great audiobook

Good for beginners in farsi but will help if you already have a start and know some verbs and vocabulary.

Learning a Third Language made easy

I struggled to find a process which I was comfortable with to learn Farsi as I would usually rely on the children's books ^ comics ^ novellas ^ novels ^ essays route which is unavailable here. This method works very well in comparison to most others in my opinion, I personally tried to do each module twice a day and finished the course fairly quickly.
I look forward to the next modules

Excellent course in Farsi!

Clear, cleverly structured, an unusually good beginners' course. Built up with well-timed repetition to aid memory.
