Learn Persian in Action
italki teacher since Mar 5, 2023
Hello future Persian speaker,
My name is Ali and I am passionate about learning and teaching languages. That is why I’m here to help you, like an archaeologist, dig deeper into the Persian language. A language in which a poet can say, in just one sentence, more than a thousand words. Now, you might have understood that I love poetry, along with other interests like nature, philosophy, nature of thoughts and mind, writing, languages, cooking, traveling, traditional medicine and traditional Persian music (especially setar).
Me as a Teacher
I don’t see a teacher-student relationship as a hierarchical one but rather as a collaborative and friendly one. Through my experience, I think, as a teacher, I should not overwhelm beginners by giving them a lot of complicated concepts as milestones. On the contrary, I prefer to make my students familiar with Persian through audio files, videos which is an example of an active learning instead of a passive learning- similar to how a child learn a language first at home. I know that learning Persian can seem challenging, but do not worry, behind its exotic alphabet, Persian is actually a simple and poetic language to learn, especially if you have the right guide to accompany you.
My lessons & teaching style
I believe that in each language, there are two entrances and two exits. On the one hand, we learn new words through our ears by listening and through our eyes by reading, and on the other hand, we use these new words through our mouth by speaking and through our hands by writing. So, to speak well, we need to listen well, and to write well, we need to read well. And my way of teaching Persian is based on this fact where, at the same time, we could improve all of these four skills - of course, depending on your interests and your needs, we will discuss about it in our first session.
