    Bonus - The Protest Song "Barayeh"

    Bonus - The Protest Song "Barayeh"

    Dear listener, as you are likely aware, protestors in Iran are demanding the government respect their fundamental rights to self-expression and freedom. The government responded to their demands with a violent crackdown.

    Instead of a regular episode, we discuss the protests through Shervin Hajipour's song Barayeh.

    The song reflects the frustrations of many young people living in Iran whose wishes are suppressed by their government.

    We discuss some new vocabulary, interesting idioms, and include some short grammar lessons about forming nouns from adjectives.

Exactly what I wanted!

This podcast is SO helpful with conversational Farsi! I was stuck after working through other beginner materials and this is the perfect transition to more intermediate conversational practice. Thank you so much Alex and Parvane for making this!!

Tymahz Toumadje ,

Incredibly insightful and fun to listen to!

This podcast is great for beginners trying to improve their Farsi skills! It’s also great if you just want to learn a bit about Iranian culture as well!
