DAY 1: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)

“Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.” – Rumi

It wasn’t until 3:30 PM that I actually decided on a language. I know, I KNOW. I was out until 3 AM ringing in the new year at a casino in Northern California. Did I win? Let’s just say I started the New Year with a bit of a bang!

Choosing a Language

ALLEZ ELIZABETH - DAY 1 - FARSI LANGUAGE ON WHEEL

#ASPIRINGPOLYGLOT
Wheel of Languages, turn, turn, turn. Tell me which language I should learn!

I spun a wheel because I had a few languages in mind and was so indecisive, I needed an app for that. I’m currently on the road (and still in PJ as of 7 PM) and couldn’t quite get the FB Live thing going today. I wanted to show you, folks, that I was indeed doing this language learning challenge with you.

When I got Farsi (Persian), my immediate response was:

“Wait, who do I know that speaks Fārsī?”

By the way that’s the wrong attitude to have!

Then, I remembered why I had Farsi on my list in the first place. You can try to read my chicken scratch on my completed worksheet or you can save your eyes and read it here:

“I spun a wheel and this is the language that was chosen for me. 🙂 BUT (underlined hella times), I am a huge fan of Shahs of Sunset and have learned to appreciate Persian culture. Yes, I know it’s a TV show and things are exaggerated for effect, but I want to learn more. I wan to be able to learn enough Fārsī to travel to Iran or at the very least Tehrangeles ;). Omg, I need some tahdig.”

I then attempted to write using the Persian script.

I’ll keep working on that!
