Welcome! Farsi Shad hosts weekly online classes to teach young children ages 5 and up about Iranian culture by celebrating the language of Farsi. Kids learn how to read and write Farsi at their own pace in a fun environment. Classes are offered Monday through Saturday. Please call or email us with inquires if you are interested in enrolling your child.
Farsi Shad treats students individually, adopting a Montessori style of learning that results in quick grasp of the language and the culture. Our curriculum employs the same phonetic method of learning used to teach English in schools that is more accommodating than overwhelming. In addition to Iranian students, Farsi Shad has also attracted many non-Iranian students who are interested in learning a third language. Non-Iranian students especially have less difficulty picking up languages through familiar methods of teaching.
One of the most enjoyable elements of the class for many kids is understanding modern visualizations of Iran as a means to create cultural connections. Identifying their origins geographically is the ﬁrst step toward fostering a sense of curiosity about their past. In many cases, some do not know where Iran is on the map, while they hear other students in the class speak about their summer vacations to Tabriz and Shiraz. The diversity in travel experience within our community adds to the breadth of knowledge we possess as a group.
Our greatest success has been being able to reconnect families to their origins. Understanding the culture and speaking the language give students the opportunity to travel to Iran to explore, engage in community service, and become ambassadors of cultural exchange.
