DAY 7: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)

 شادی چیزی از پیش آماده نیست. آن از اقدامات شما نشات می‌گیرد.

 Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions.

The Second Lesson without Duolingo

A part of me died when I saw that Duolingo did not have Persian (Fārsi) as one of their languages. Maybe it's the language learner in me, but I feel that every language is essential to understand a culture and vice versa. When asked, “How's that Fārsī going, Liz?”, I don't want to give people the impression that I'm not enjoying the language. That's far from it. I guess I was just taken aback when my trusty Duolingo wasn't so trusty after all.

I've worked my way through one lesson in the Farsi (Persian) for Beginners: Mastering Conversational Farsi by Saeid Atoofi, Ph.D, which chances are will be repeated tomorrow. I am hopeful because I went through a similar journey with Russian and getting to know the Cyrillic alphabet.

This too shall pass!

Māmān joon. ( مامان جون )

Wait, I know this! I heard it said numerous times on Shahs of Sunset. I still didn't quite understand how it was used and why. Pontia at the Persian Corner explains the word joon in further detail. In laymen's terms, it's used as a term of endearment.

I'm going to start using it!
