Designed by University of Washington Persian professor Ahmad Karimi-Hakkak, this program teaches Persian culture, how to write the Persian alphabet, basic grammatical concepts of the Persian language, and speaking and listening skills. The engaging features include the ability to take a virtual trip to an Iranian city and interact with its inhabitants. You can take a taxi ride, haggle with the merchants at the market, dine with friends, and check in at a hotel. Converse with up to three people at each locale; there are more 400 lines of professionally recorded dialogue. Vivid background sounds and hand-painted scenes make the city come alive.

The Letter Recognition section of the program helps you identify letters within words. Persian letters can be tricky. They change shape depending on where they appear--at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of a word. This program makes clear where each letter is and what its function is in each word. Writing and spelling games build your vocabulary and test your pronunciation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Try this, but not only this March 28, 2002
Verified Purchase
I would recommend this CD to those who are beginning to study Farsi (Persian). You won't learn the language using this software alone, and you'll outgrow it as soon as yo master the conversation section. You'll still need a good grammar book and a way to hear the spoken language. But in this CD you'll find good exercises that will help you to learn the alphabet and the sounds. The conversation section is very useful, you'll have the chance to hear at normal speed a normal conversation and practice what you can say in those cases (restaurant, taxi, hotel) covered here. And you can see it written down and practice at your pace. But, again, think about it as a supplement , not the basis for study. Movafagh bashid!

2.0 out of 5 stars Consider Other Programs July 5, 2002
By A Customer
If you are interested in learning the Persian language via a computer program you should consult someone who has already done that. See if it'll work for you too. I know of a web site that has commentaries from people who have used Persian teaching CD programs...select COMMENTS from its side bar. See what they say before you purchase any program. Most CDs are junk. From this web site there are links to numerous Persian Teaching programs that you can easily find what you are looking for.
My advice: do not purchase this or any other Persian teaching CD unless you have the facts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Persian Tutor , a great product March 14, 2002
The Persian Tutor is unlike any other language learning system I have seen. It an easy to use computer software with games, quizzes, organized charts and notes that are easy gain from and simple to read.
Ahmad Karimi-Hakkak has designed program with a fun interactive game, which enables the Persian (Farsi) student to travel a city in Persia.
Check into hotels, shop in a bazaar, and go to a restaurant and more.
The program teaches the Persian alphabet, words, and basic dialogue. A lot is voice activated, which a great way to learn correct pronunciation.
This would be my first suggestion to some one who is learning Persian, especially beginners. It is definitely a fun and fast way to learn with easy reading unlike thick text one might purchase in order to learn a language.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money. October 13, 2005
Verified Purchase
This should be a $5-10 piece of software. The "interact" scenarios provided are few and not all that helpful. Essentially all you can learn is directions or saying very simple pleasantries. I can say with confidence that anyone would be better off with an audio recording and/or book to learn farsi.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute garbage August 24, 2002
Not only is this product a piece of garbage, it is made by a very horrible teacher. Its an all around waste of money. The program itself is outdated, slow and follows no real logic. Checking into a hotel or restaurant at a Persian city??? Ok, maybe for the retarded. The only good thing about this program is that its on cd. That means that it can fly a lot farther when you realize the mistake you have made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Place To Start - FUN! Great for kids and adults. August 10, 2008
Persian Tutor by Professor Ahmad Karimi-Hakkak is an interactive CD-ROM that is designed with both the beginner through advanced student in mind. Learn the Persian alphabet and beginning reading and writing principles. Practice speaking Persian through exciting and realistic street scenes. Persian Tutor delivers more instruction, more effectively than many other higher priced products on the market today.

This is not a complete course, but its a good place to start, especially since so many get stuck on the alphabet. This CD will teach you the accurate pronunciation of the alphabet - at your own pace. Once you've learned pronunciation and reading, the dialogue section is a lot of fun! You'll like the graphics of the Iranian city: the market place, food, friends, hotel, even the taxi! It's a cultural experience.
