Hear what our students have to say:
"You guys have provided me with the best Persian course I've ever experienced. Before this I tried everything I could put my hands on - Farsi class, books etc- and nothing would work. I searched internet and found you by a happy accident and decided to give it a try and voila! I learned spoken Persian in no time! Good job guys!"
"I am very pleased with my choice of Fluent Farsi and I love how I can speak Farsi. My husband tells me that my Farsi pronunciations are quite good. Glad I found you!"
-Bridget, New York
I was born in the States from an American mom and an Iranian dad. Growing up I used to hear Farsi on my father’s side of the family but I never really learned how to speak it though the sound and rhythm was lovely. For years I wanted to learn how to speak in Farsi so that I could communicate with my relatives and better understand their culture. I tried to find a course to learn spoken Farsi but was not successful until I found this course which is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Now I can speak in Farsi and take part in Farsi conversations. Thank you for providing such a useful course.
"I am amazed by the simplicity of this teaching method. The explanations leave no stone unturned and easy to follow. This Persian course rocks!"
-Rachel, Los Angeles
"Just think its need to be said that Fluent Farsi has a rock solid teaching method and everything makes sense in the step by step approach they use to teach Persian. I went to a Persian class for a year and the only thing I learned was writing and reading which was not what I was really interested in. I wanted to speak in Farsi and they taught me nothing in that regard. Then I found out about Fluent Farsi from a friend who recommended it and I am glad that I decided to learn spoken Farsi through this course because it does what it claims and their teaching method is excellent. I can speak Persian now and I am looking forward to learn more. Thank you."
"I don't have time to go to a class. I was looking for an alternative and this course is what I needed. At first I was skeptical but the deeper I delved into this course the more I discovered how well designed and efficient it is. I recommend Fluent Farsi to anyone who is interested to acquire the ability to speak in Farsi."

Fluent Farsi Review [by one of our students]
January 9, 2017
I have a Persian fiancé and in the early days of our relationship, I was not thinking about learning Persian (or Farsi) as it did not seem necessary to me. However, after a while, I noticed that my fiancé’s mother and family and friends speak in Persian with each other and with him most of the time. They usually had some short conversations with me in English, but pretty much almost everything else was happening in Farsi!
A few times my fiancé tried to translate some of the conversations for me but it did not work that well because they were talking fast and he was also talking with them in Farsi in the middle of his translations for me! So it was clear to me that I needed to learn Persian, especially because I wanted to know what my future mother in law is saying in Farsi to my future husband!
I asked my fiancé to tell me the best way to learn Persian and speak the language like them. He told me that I might be able to learn some formal Farsi through books and classes, but that I won’t be able to really communicate in Persian orally unless I spend a few years in Iran which certainly was not in our plans.
Honestly, it was not the answer I was looking for, so I decided to search for myself and see if I can find a course to learn Persian. What I needed was an online course because I did not have time to attend a regular language class and did not want to add another item to my already busy schedule.
After doing some online search I found a few online courses that claimed they can teach me how to “speak” in Farsi. Among them, there were the very famous ones that have software which can listen to your voice and correct your pronunciations and whatnot. I was pretty much sure that I found what I was looking for, but to be on the safe side I also asked my fiancé to take a look at the sample lessons of those famous online courses and tell me which one is the best.
To my astonishment, he told me that none of them was what I was looking for! He told me that I won’t be able to speak in Farsi using those products even though they have listed “speaking” as one of the skills developed as the result of using their products! He explained to me that memorizing some formal Farsi sentences is not equal to being able to speak informal Farsi.
He also told me that in reality, the Persian language that Iranian people use in everyday conversations is very different from the formal version of Persian, and what those famous online courses teach is only the formal version of the language, and what those courses mean by “speaking” the language is actually kind of misleading because saying formal Farsi sentences aloud is not really equal to speaking in Farsi.
I did not know any of these, and to tell you the truth I was upset that these famous courses only pretended to teach me how to speak in Farsi. I did not want to give up as I needed to learn Persian, so I decided to search more and see if there are any other courses that could teach me how to speak in Farsi.
And then I found “Fluent Farsi”. They claimed that in their videos they teach Spoken Farsi and they listed the differences that I was told exist between formal and informal Farsi and promised to teach the informal Farsi, or as they call it “Spoken Farsi”. This was exactly what I was looking for! I watched their sample lesson video and asked my fiancé to watch that sample lesson too. My fiancé was kind of surprised that such a course in teaching Spoken Farsi even exists, and after watching the sample lesson he confirmed that the sample lesson is indeed a lesson on Spoken Farsi.
I bought their course two months ago and I have practiced the material whenever I have time and it really works for me as I do not need to attend a class at a specific time. Since watching and learning the lessons I can make SPOKEN FARSI sentences myself which is truly awesome! I was able to learn Spoken Farsi through Fluent Farsi lessons even without knowing the Farsi alphabet because their teaching system works in a way that I can learn to speak in Farsi without a need to read or write in Farsi.
Their Spoken Farsi packages also contain a series of videos in which they teach how to write and read in Farsi. Initially, I was not interested in learning the Farsi alphabet, but as they have already offered these lessons in the package, out of curiosity I began to watch those videos too, and before you know it, I learned to read in Farsi!
I can say that their teaching method certainly works for me because I can say many correct Spoken Farsi sentences now. The course material is easy to follow and for each lesson, there is also a practice section to solidify the learning of that lesson. I also recommended Fluent Farsi to a few of my Facebook friends who were interested to learn Spoken Farsi and from what they told me I know that they bought the course and began to learn Spoken Farsi too.
My future mother in law is kind of not very happy that now I can somewhat understand what she is saying to my future husband! I guess she needs to find another language because my Persian is getting better and better!
I just thought to share my Spoken Farsi learning journey in this post to let those of you who might be interested to learn Farsi know that there is actually a course online for Spoken Farsi, and it worked fine for me.
