In this lesson, we learn all about the Persian tradition of celebrating birthdays. We also learn the lyrics to the Persian birthday song. However, we don't sing it. To hear it sung, check out this version sung by one of the best Iranian singers, Hayedeh.
In this lesson, we learn the different forms of you, formal and informal. In addition, we build on learning how to introduce yourself, including asking where others are from, and how to answer where you are from.
In this lesson, we follow Lesson 2 of Learn Persian with Chai and Conversation- to get the bonus materials for this lesson, visit the lesson page. There, you'll find the transcript of the lesson, the lesson guide, the words presented as individual 'snippets' so you can listen to them over and over again, and an enhanced podcast where you can watch a video of the lesson with the words flashing on the screen.
In this video, we go through Lesson 1 of Chai and Conversation with Leyla and Chris. Chris has been married to Leyla for over three years now, but has not dived into the Chai and Conversation program just yet. Because the in-laws (and Leyla) are growing a bit impatient with his lack of knowledge of the Persian language, he is going through the program in video format with Leyla. The lessons in 'So I Married an Iranian' will follow the same format of the podcasts of Chai and Conversation- however, there will be plenty of cultural lessons as well. Learn along with Chris as he journeys into the Persian language and culture!
As those of you who have been with us for a while may have noticed, we have a brand new website! We have been working quietly behind the scenes on this for over two years now, so you can imagine how excited we are to finally reveal all that work to you. And the response has been overwhelmingly positive! Thank you for all your kind notes and words of encouragement- please keep them coming!
