DAY 3: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)

“Love will find its way through all languages on its own.”

Rumi

Introducing Yourself

I wasn’t expecting this to be easy after this is called a challenge. Introducing yourself can be daunting especially in a new language. In Persian (Fārsī), it felt like it was more difficult to get the words and sentences out on paper. I struggled badly. I ended up going to sleep and getting myself ready for the road trip back home and trying again once in the comfort of my own home.

I wanted to get more down on paper and try not to use the romanization or transliteration version, but I need to learn Persian (Fārsī) phonetically first before I can move on to the script, which by the way is another beast in itself.

The first sentence is the informal introduction. I tend to stick with formal just in case.

Sālam, man Elizabeth hastam. Az didan-e shomā khoshbakhtam.

Hello, my name is Elizabeth. Nice to meet you.

Man amrikayi hastam.

I am American.

Man yek sag daaram.

I have a dog.

Man too California zendegi mikonam. Havā garm nist.

I live in California. The weather is not hot.

Man mohandesam.

I am an engineer.

I know it sounds like caveman talk, but that’s where I’m at with Persian (Fārsī). I could give up and cry, but I’m interested in learning the language. I’ve purchased five books (three e-books, an audiobook, and a workbook) which I’ve added to my reading list. I wasn’t expecting to purchase materials for thi challenge; however, language learning resources specifically audio translations are hard to come by for Persian (Fārsī).

Sometimes you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet.
