The best Farsi/Persian book-CD set I've come across but quite challenging - probably better for those who've already learnt a bit. Try 'Colloquial Persian' by Abdi Rafdi if you're a total beginner.

This textbook has everything you need in order to learn a language: Farsi texts with original and romanized letters, parallel English translations, CD recordinggs of the texts. It is the best product for learning Farsi, made so far.

I am not entirely pleased with this course but that has more to do with personal preferences than the course itself. Firstly, I agree with another review that Colloquial Persian is a better option for a total beginner. I am using this course at the same time but I know that I will have more use for it after I have completed the Colloquial one.

One of the annoyances is that the CDs MUST be used in conjunction with the book. I have copied them to my iPod but unless I have reviewed the vocabulary in advance, it isn't necessarily helpful to simply listen to the recordings. The English is not repeated after the words (a feature I like with the Colloquial Persian). I also don't like the fact that when the American "character" (Jim) is speaking, he uses an American accent. This may be understandable but I only want to hear native Iranians speaking Persian - I am trying to develop a good accent, not imitate a foreigner!

Another issue is that not all of the Persian text has been transliterated. That's fine, as I intend to read Persian but it is my specific goal for the first 3 months to ONLY concentrate on the spoken language and developing my listening skills. I also don't like the particular transliteration system that has been used. (However, this is a personal preference and certainly doesn't detract from the value of the course).

I would recommend this course but only if you are seriously interested in Persian and not simply trying to learn enough to cope on holiday in Iran. If the latter is your goal, then Colloquial Persian would be much more useful.
