After over a decade of teaching Farsi to wonderful people from around the globe, I can confidently state that a reliable collection of Farsi Conversational Verbs is quite difficult to find. In fact, Farsi Wizard’s 110 Conversational Verbs may very well be the first ebook ever published as a practical verb reference for speaking Farsi (and not just reading or writing it).
How This Book Came to Be:
Speaking Farsi does not necessarily require being able to read and write in the Persian Alphabet. Many of my students (around 70%) sign up just for conversation classes and this is what I teach them: how to confidently communicate like a native speaker without knowing the Persian Alphabet.
In order to create learning material for my students, I researched many sources over the years. Almost all Farsi verb references that I found online, though, seemed to concentrate on written Farsi and they offered material that sounded too bookish (this is why, by the way, most of my students kept failing to learn the correct conversational grammar just by reading grammar books). So I decided to write a “book” (the irony of that!) to teach Farsi learners how to actually sound like a native speaker using verbs in casual conversations and daily interactions.
I started by collecting the most common conversational verbs in Farsi (with the help of other native speakers). These are the verbs spoken in today’s Iran and are widely used regardless of region and ethnicity. I divided these verbs into “Conversational Verbs” and “Compound Verbs” and chose 110 in each category to make them available for those interested in learning how to communicate smoothly and confidently in Farsi.
“110 Conversational Verbs” Book Features:
- 110 most common conversational Farsi verbs as used by Iranians in their everyday life
- Translation and transliteration provided for each verb, so you can use this book without knowing the Persian Alphabet
- Each verb fully conjugated across the most common 9 verb tenses
- An English introduction, explaining the grammatical logic of Farsi verbs, and a few quick tips to learn them
- Clickable Alphabetical Index which makes it easy to navigate the book
- A separate index (Farsi, English, and Pinglish), which is quite handy if you just need a quick list of all the verbs in this book
- 265 pages of Printable PDF in case you’d like to print any verb table and use it as a cheat sheet 🙂
PLEASE NOTE: this is the first volume of a two-part series, and covers “Solid Verbs” or one-word verbs. The verbs composed of two parts, such as “Goosh Kard-an” (which literally means ” to do ear” but actually means “to listen”) have been addressed in the second volume, 110 Compound Verbs.
