1.0 out of 5 stars One of the weaker courses for Persian
The books in the Teach Yourself series are very uneven in quality. This one, sadly, is far from good.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the weaker courses for Persian, 10 Dec 2010
The books in the Teach Yourself series are very uneven in quality. This one, sadly, is far from good. Believe it or not, Persian is one of the easiest languages you'll come across, the grammar is exceptionally easy. For that reason, the lack of in-depth grammar in this course is no big problem. A far bigger problem is the very weak pronunciation section. Persian is an easy language to pronounce once you learn the rules, but you won't with this course.

The worst problem, however, is the vocabulary: you'll learn very few words. Having read and reviewed hundreds of language courses at a professional level, I've encountered very few with such a limited vocabulary. So, almost no help with the pronunciation, not much grammar and a far too limited vocabulary. What do you really learn with this course. Not much, hence the low rating. There are many courses that are better, such as Colloquial Persian, An Introduction to Persian or Modern Persian. Any of those three books will teach you far more than this one.

Here are the links to Persian courses I'd recommend over this one, they are all far more user friendly, better on grammar and, crucially, provide the learner with a much larger vocabulary.

Colloquial Persian - Paperback and CD Pack (Colloquial Series (Multimedia))
An Introduction to Persian
Farsi: Beginners Course (World Language): Living Language
