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!
Another tābestoon week, another set of words! This week, we got a little help with our words from musician Fared Shafinury. In addition to being an incredible Iranian-American musician, he also wrote and performed our theme music!
Welcome to our new Learn Persian with Chai and Conversation tābestoon (summer) Word of the Day series! In this series of short videos, we're going to learn one vocabulary day each day of the week in the summer. On Fridays, we'll provide a summary of the words we've learned in a video and here on the website blog. Please leave any words you'd like to learn in the comments- here at Chai and Conversation, we LOVE summer, and are excited to share these words with you!
