Salam! Khosh amadid!   Hello everyone, welcome back! I hope you are enjoying the lessons. Did you have any problems with lesson 26? Today, we’ll practice a bit more to get more fluent in changing a sentence into a question form (interrogative). As you have noticed, what is important here is the way we pronounce the sentence or I’d better say the intonation of verbs. Before we try, let’s take a short quiz. Agreed? Good!

Persian Lesson 23 – How to Use Nouns with Adjectives, use /ye/ or /-e-/

Persian Lesson 23 – How to Use Nouns with Adjectives, use /ye/ or /-e-/

Salam! Khosh amadid! Thank God we have no questions for this week! (Joke that is!!) Now let’s begin. Last week, we learned how to use a noun with an adjective. As you remember, unlike English, adjectives come after nouns in Persian and there can be two conjunctions between nouns and adjectives: /ye/, and /-e-/ sounds. Today we are going to practice more with this to make sure that everything is clearly understood.

    Sala:m, in "mæn kha:neh i: ra: foru:khtæm" the i: appears in Persian "خانه ای" but in "mæn yek kha:neh ye ku:chæk ra:" there is no ye "خانه" as expected "خانه یی". Could you please explain this? Xeyli mamnun.

      That's a good question. for the words you mentioned, "خانه کوچک" there is a name and an adjective. In this case if the word ends in "الف" or "و", you will have that "ی" in between. for example: دریای کوچک، آهوی بزرگ، ابروی باریک. For other words, we used to have "ء" in old literature which was added on the last letter before the adjective which is not used in modern Persian that much. I mean that sentence used to be like this: من یک خانهء کوچک را ... but the "ء" should be written ON the "ه" not after it and it is not used much more these days.

Salam! Khosh amadid!   Hello everyone! I hope you are not giving up! How do you find the lessons? Are they getting difficult or still easy to follow? I am really trying hard to make the lessons as easy as possible. All I want you to do is a little cooperation, not too much! We are almost on our way. Do you remember what I told you during the first lessons? When there is a will, there is a way. There is no impossible if we are strong. Learning a language, like many other things, demands our patience and continuous work. Don’t get disappointed if you are still unable to clearly understand your Iranian friends during your night gatherings! You need more patience and I need more time to help you with this. You had strong motivation to stay with me for 23 weeks. So, don’t let it fade away. Remember, what stops you is a simple laziness not a busy time! No more preaching!!

Salam! Khosh amadid!   Hello everyone, welcome back! Before we start today, let’s take a look at one of your e-mails. It says: I have been avidly following your lessons from the very beginning, and I have one suggestion for you. It would be helpful if you posted a small test at the beginning of each lesson covering the material from the previous lesson. This would encourage your pupils to actively learn the words and sentence structures instead of just reading along. Sometimes I find myself just writing everything down but not memorizing the words. I am sure others would find this helpful also.

Salam! Khosh amadid!   Hopefully you are enjoying the lessons. Please let me know if you have any questions that you think I can answer! Don’t get impatient if you receive no direct reply although I am trying to write back to many of you as much as I can. Anyway, you may find the answers to your questions regarding the lessons here on this site even if there is no direct reply to your messages through e-mail.
