Farsi English Accent


Farsi, sometimes referred to as Persian, is spoken primarily in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. I've included 7 key points to focus on to make your Persian English accent more understandable and clear. Many of these recommendations and suggestions for improved clarity overlap with previously covered accents, so make sure to check them out as well for more words and/or suggestions to consider.

I quickly identify Farsi as a syllable-timed language and the concept of word stress but it really cannot be summarized into a small snippet on an infographic. Stay tuned for an actual in-depth post about these concepts in further detail in the future.
