Mojy is BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Persian Languages and teaching. She is very positive and wouldn't let you go to the next step before she makes sure you have learned what you need with fun and enthusiasm. She is very educated and learned about both Persian language and culture. She has a great understanding of the students' needs. Well, She is very pushy, but that is what we need to pass DLPT . I would not have GOTTEN 3/3+ if I would not have had Mojy for my teacher. Go Mojy! ;)

Mojy is by far the most qualified and talented language instructor I have ever had. After a week of class it was clear that she was an instructor that was on a completely different level than my instructors in the past. While under her instruction i vastly improved in every facet of my language, both in skill and in confidence. Her class room provides a relaxed but highly focused environment, and she genuinely cares about her student's success. If you give her your attention and effort then you will not be disappointment with the results.

After seven years' experience in Farsi I hit a proficiency plateau, but Mojy's customized and attentive instruction got my scores up to an ILR Level 3 in reading and 2+ in listening- my best scores ever! I can't recommend her highly enough. She knows what material works and how to explain complex grammatical concepts effectively. Best teacher ever!

My tutoring approach:
My Persian/Farsi language classes are conducted at my home and on Skype, seven days a week. And there you'll find that my tutoring method makes it so much fun to learn the beautiful Persian language which is so pleasing to the ear. I use video / audio files and texts as well as I provide engaging homework.

I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes after I began to work as a Nurse at a Los Angeles Nursing Home, where Farsi is the first language of most of the patients as well as some of the doctors and nurses.
Even though it's only two months since I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes, I can enthusiastically say that I can now communicate with the patients and medical staff in Farsi. I definitely recommend Farangis.

Salam everyone,

Looking to learn Farsi?

My name is Haideh and I have been teaching Farsi for a 2 years now in Colorado and California. I use games, movies and activities to teach this beautiful language to my students. Mostly I focus on conversation but I can also teach grammar and writing.

I take on all ranges of students, from those who don't even know the alphabet to those looking to improve their conversation skills.

All lessons are customized to student needs at all levels.

Farsi Lessons

Do you want to take Persian Farsi lessons with the perfect teacher near you? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private Farsi lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - accelerates your progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every student's chances of becoming a fluent user of the Farsi language. Private tutoring makes learning easy, it's more affordable than you might think, and it's the most impactful way to improve your skills for beginner or advanced learners.

Our Farsi tutors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. They can teach you the origins of the Farsi language, in addition to the vocabulary, the grammar, the punctuation, the consonants, the vowels, allophones, sentence structures, gender differences, and other technical aspects. Learn about and experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits of learning Farsi.

Farsi is classified as a Category 4 language (meaning it's one of the hardest languages to master for English speakers), and it takes up to 44 weeks, or 1200 hours, of deliberate practice to gain General Professional Fluency. A private tutor can help keep you focused, committed, and motivated, not to mention their ability to help you overcome any language hurdles you have trouble with.

Your tutor offers you expert language learning techniques and tips, and helps you develop good practice habits, so that you can maximize your learning experience, and achieve your goals faster. Learning Farsi is extremely useful in the United States, it helps with career prospects, educational development, business opportunities, and personal relationships. Become a better Farsi speaker, reader, writer, and communicator.

We guarantee a personalized experience that will make you glad you took up private lessons. In fact, we are so committed to your happiness that we offer all new customers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on your first lesson.

Alternative Language Lesson Methods:
Farsi Apps and Books

For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out Farsi books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.

Iran and Afghanistan Travel & Immersion

If you're considering study-abroad programs in Iran, Afghanistan, or Tajikistan, work relocation, international business opportunities, or general travel as a means to learning Farsi, immersing yourself and interacting with locals is a surefire way to accelerate your learning. Reading signs, menus, and local newspaper magazines while abroad could expose you to all kinds of spontaneous subjects. Conversing with or having to ask native speakers for directions or recommendations forces you to proactively apply your lessons. The downside is that many students, professionals, and travelers don't feel as confident in taking this approach. Not knowing the basics of the language could backfire on you, and lead to poor decision making. If you learn basic conversation and the most popular phrases for traveling, then you can combine this knowledge with immersion and return home a more fluent speaker.

Group Classes

Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local group Farsi classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.

At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
