Persian Learner Part One & Persian Learner Part Two
Persian Learner series by Professor Peyman Nojoumian, a professional linguist and seasoned language educator, offers a wide array of learner-centered tasks and exercises that systematically engage learners of Persian in the learning process from absolute beginner to intermediate levels. Supported by a convenient online learner dictionary, it also exposes students to authentic samples of Persian in use, with ample scaffolding. This is a truly self-contained package that greatly facilitates the teaching and learning of the Persian language and culture.––Ali Abasi, Associate Professor of Persian, University of Maryland
Persian Learner Part ThreeProfessor Peyman Nojoumian has been working for over a decade on preparing a proficiency and task-based textbook series that incorporates the teaching of culture into a well-structured college curriculum for learning the Persian language; the result, supported by Farhang Foundation and published by UC Irvine's Jordan Center for Persian Studies, marks a milestone advance in the entire enterprise of language teaching. Subtly privileging a pragmatic approach to cultural literacy, this volume seems best suited for intermediate and advanced learners. It is my privilege to endorse every aspect of it and do so sincerely and wholeheartedly.

Persian Learner Part FourPersian Learner is not only a comprehensive four volume instructional book (elementary to advanced), it is an immersive language experience. Its multi-dimensional approach to teaching the Persian language through context-specific exercises initiates students to the world of classical Persian literature, Iran's eventful and long history, and various cultural developments, thus making the Persian Learner a highly effective tool for the acquisition of an important world language.
The book is supplemented with audio-visual files, documentary films, multiple maps, charts, and numerous images that bring to life the Persian language and contributions of major intellectuals who helped shape it throughout the centuries to offer students a rigorous and systematic language training, using new linguistic methods not seen in conventional instructional books.

Student ReviewsI have taken three years of Spanish in high school and retained very little of what I learned. The structure for the public school Spanish curriculum is very rigid and forced, shoving grammar and vocabulary down your throat. This book is different. This series of Persian Learner textbooks progresses so naturally and effectively that you truly retain what you learn. Through this awesome book, from its incredible exercises to its immerse cultural lessons, you can truly connect with the Persian language as well as the rich culture behind it. Through Part One, I learned how to read and write at a pace I never thought possible. After developing my proficiency in Part Two, I found myself developing truly legitimate and credible Persian language skills that I feel comfortable expressing with family and fellow Persian speakers. I am seriously profoundly grateful for this book. I am eager to explore the next level book and continue to develop my Persian language proficiency through this awesome and engaging curriculum!
Persian Learner Part One provides a good basis for learning the fundamentals of the Persian language. It is not overwhelming to learn the large alphabet because the format in which the letters are learned makes it easy to progress. There is an English/Persian dictionary in the back which is very helpful. Also, the pictures, texts, and readings are very cultural so it gives a good insight not just on the language but also some cultural sayings. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book as it is a very good starting point either for someone who is a complete beginner, or someone who can somewhat speak the language and want's to go the extra step and learn how to read and write.
Dr. Nojoumian's Persian Learner series provides authentic exposure to the language as it's used day to day. Over the course of just ten units, students are introduced to the key words and phrases they will need in Persian-speaking environments and learn about the major holidays which define Iran's culture. His introduction to the writing system is intelligent and well paced, and his attention to the subtle differences in formal and informal speech is a crucial feature which sets this textbook apart. I can say wholeheartedly that this book is the best introduction to the language I've seen yet.
