    Better off with An Introduction to Persian

    I was looking forward to receiving this course book, but upon initial inspection I found there was no instruction on how to handwrite the Persian script. It assumes you want to learn to write in the printed word style. I know of no one who uses that style - very bookish and literary. In addition, the pronunciation section lacks significant detail about the sounds and, especially, the stress of Persian words. The latter is completely lacking. Persian stress is pretty regular, but it can change based on word endings/grammar, and some words have irregular stress. The CD that comes with it is good, but the book, for all its 'marketing' should be more complete in this respect. Also, there are no answers to the exercises, so you have to search for similar sentences or constructions in the lessons to check yourself. Eventhough Teach Yourself Persian needs work, I will stick with that title and An Introduction to Persian. The latter title is the best choice. Although there is no accompanying CD, the section on pronunciation is quite detailed to give one a good feel for the pronunciation and stress. It also addresses Persian sentence intonation.
