Pimsleur Farsi Persian

<p>
Today I finished the thirtieth and final lesson available from <a href="http://www.pimsleur.com/Learn-Farsi-Persian">Pimsleur</a> for Iranian Persian (also known as Farsi). I am slightly in mourning; I love Pimsleur's products so much, and I wish they had more lessons for this particular language. For the most popular ones, they have 120!</p>
<p>
I have not to date encountered anything quite as good as Pimsleur at advancing my oral skills in foreign languages.</p>
<p>
I completed Lesson 30 on a sunny run in Central Park, appreciating once again how conveniently this product fits into the corners of my life. I can run with it, walk, do errands, complete chores, wait in line, and so on. Pimsleur is portable, as it is an all-audio product. (Well, it has reading lessons, too, but I rarely do them, as I usually get my reading and writing from other sources.)</p>
<p>
I can't exaggerate the value of this portability. When you are a grownup with work, and kids, and/or other obligations, it can be hard to find time to set up a computer or sit down with a book.</p>
<p>
But: Taking an elevator somewhere? Pop in your Pimsleur. Walking to the corner store? Pop in your Pimsleur. And so on.</p>
<p>
Each lesson is about 30 minutes long and highly interactive. You don't learn a ton of words, but you do get some very useful vocabulary along with a sense of the language's architecture&nbsp;and a great deal of pronunciation practice. Try a free Persian lesson off their <a href="http://www.pimsleur.com/learn-farsi-persian">website</a> to see if it suits you.</p>
<p>
I never do Pimsleur in isolation; I always supplement with other materials as well. I use <a href="http://memrise.com">Memrise</a> for vocabulary, I use grammar books, I use anything I can get my hands on, really. But Pimsleur has often acted as the spine of my learning programs, and I suspect it will continue to do so for other languages in the future.</p>
