Hey, that actually kinda helped me refresh my Persian! Thanks!

Have fun with the Persian-speaking world while you're at it. Persian has a remarkably simple morphology, but is rich in lexicon and idiomatic usage. I'm interested in picking up Tajik, and seeing as that you are as well, I'd love to "share" (PM me!) an excellent text.

How well-acquainted are you with the Persian alphabet?
American English (en-us) Pizzonese (nap) N Italian (it) Mexican Spanish (es-mx) Brazilian Portuguese (pt-br) Albanian (sq) B1 Greek (el) Persian (fa) A2 Turkish (tr) Azerbaijani (az) Old English (en_old) A1

I haven't studied Persian in a few years but surprisingly I can still read the Arabic alphabet for the most part lol

However to get more acquainted with grammar and expression, using roman characters helps me a lot.
