DAY 19: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)

اندیشه مکن بکن تو خود را در خواب
کاندیشه زه روی مه حجابست حجاب
دل چون ما هست در دل اندیشه مدار
انداز تو اندیشه گری را در اب


Andîsheh makon, bekon to khod râ dar khâb,
Ke-andîsheh ze roy-è Mâh hejâb ast hejâb.
Del chon Mâh ast, dar del andîsheh madâr,
Andâz to andîsheh-ghary râ dar Âb


Don't even think, just let yourself dream.
Thoughts are veils that hide the moon's bright face.
The heart's a moon, where thinking has no place.
Toss these thoughts away into the stream.

10 Essential Travel Phrases in Persian

Remembering my adventures while traveling, I figured these would be the 10 most useful travel phrases. You could say asking for directions should be here too, and I agree. Trust me it was hard to narrow it down to 10 travel phrases.

I suggest that if you are short on time and need to learn a language ASAP, learn travel phrases first! As I've mentioned in previous posts, I am a fan of Living Language‘s In-Flight series. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find one for Persian (Fārsī) anywhere.
