The mother tongue is a language you use to communicate with others.

It’s a tool that’s been around for thousands of years, but there are lots of ways you can teach your child Persian.

Here’s how to get started.


Use a book or audio book to learn about the language.

Learn about Persian in a local library or community center.

If you have a family member who can speak Persian, you can start with the books on your own.

If not, you’ll probably want to pick up a book on Persian culture, history, and culture in general.
