Farsi, or Persian, is the official language of Iran, where approximately 70 million people speak it as a first or second language. There are also many millions of speakers in neighboring countries. Farsi is written in Perso-Arabic script, but it is presented here in a romanized, easy-to-use form for instant communication. This volume uses the Tehran standard of Farsi. In addition to a pronunciation guide and transliteration system of the Farsi alphabet, included are a resourceful two-way dictionary containing more than 4,000 entries, an informative grammar section, and a collection of travel-oriented phrases. Observations related to travel and culture are also interspersed throughout the phrasebook.
