Learning the Persian Alphabet
الفبای فارسی, alefbā-ye fârsi or the Persian alphabet threw me for a loop and I created this challenge! I’m still working through numbers for crying aloud. I’ll probably spend more time writing out the letters in a workbook to get more comfortable. I have already started reading from right to left.
I found this video from Persian Online Academy useful. The narrator gives a brief history lesson about the Persian alphabet. They include a brief introduction, pronunciation, and sounds.
