Maybe for a foreigner this language seems very hard to read at first glance.
Not so! Here you will see how easy it can be.
George Bernard Shaw once porposed to write the word FISH like GHOTI
GH from LAUGH
O from WOMEN
TI from NATION
In traditional Farsi textbooks, there are no such things as “jokers”. This definition is my invention to make learning the alphabet easier.
So, don’t search your books or the internet for these things.
What can one do with this alphabet?
It depends on you
If you want to learn Farsi, Arabic, Urdu, Pashto, Kurdish and many other languages, this can be a good base. Just watch out for the differences in pronunciation, additional letters and different rules for writing and reading. Just like a French speaker learning German or English, for example.
Or maybe you can use this as a secret alphabet ;-). Just hide your notes from me
My secret alphabet was Cyrillic
In standard Iranian Farsi the names of the months in the Gregorian calendar are spoken with French pronunciation. In Afghanistan they use English pronunciation and in Tajikistan Russian.

Thank you very much for the cheering Kirill. I still have some other versions of the same file in other languages, that I hope I'll upload soon.
