If this textbook is anything like "Modern Persian" also written by Narguess Farzad and available on B&N, then I would make a big circle around it. "Modern Persian" is poorly edited with typographical errors and the grammatical explanations are off the wall at times. There is a common grammatical language which the author need learn. If I myself were not a language instructor with 35 years of experience, I really would not have been able to do anything with that book. Based on that experience, the only way I am going to see this next textbook is if someone sent me one for free.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
