    Wink Learning Persian and common questions

    i think it's a good idea to open a new topic for learning Persian and asking questions about Persian language....this way if you have any problem or any question for example if you wanna know the translation of a sentence you can ask your question here...!so what do you think?
    if you have any other suggestion just let me know...!

    oh i guess i've seen this video...it's an interview and the interviewer asks a guy some questions...right?this video is really hilarious.the person who answers the questions has an strong Azari accent.actually there are some parts in Iran that people talk Azari which is similar to Turkish language somehow..!and it's difficult for these people to talk persian fluently and even they have some difficulties in understanding Persian...in this interview the question is: what do people do in Qorban holiday? Qorban actually is a religious holiday in Iran that people sacrifice a lamb for God.but this person instead of answering properly, just say some relevant and irrelevant words without any verb! he says: we, the lambs,party, birth, wedding .etc....in fact he is trying to say that we celebrate this day but he can't!(lol)

    As you can see we have ت/ط which both of them are pronounced like "T" and we have ث/س/ص which are pronounced like "s" in "Sea" and we have ح/ه which are pronounced like "H" in "He".
    we also have ذ/ز/ظ/ض that all of them are pronounced like "Z" in "Zoo".

    In fact the point is that the pronunciation is the same but when you want to write , you have to pay attention to see which form of these letters should be written..

    Hahaa, mersi Pinky girl ! The official language in Belgium is Flemish, also known as Dutch, lol. But the majority of the people speak French too, in the capital city most of the people speak French, because we have a lot of immigrants living there. There's a lot of Persians in Belgium too, you can even find Iranian shops over here. So if you all want to come over, You're very welcome ! :-) By the way, I have been on Jam-ee-Jam a while ago, but I don't remember the singer's name nor the name of the song, could you help me find it back if I give you details about the video ?
