Lend a Helping Hand

Calling all mommas, daddies, caregivers, teachers, and anybody who knows anything about kids/youth and their classes! I would like to list all Persian language classes, schools, dance lessons, play groups, … and compile a state-by-state list. I already know a few, but I need much more. And this is where I need your help! For now, I’d like to cover America and Canada, as most of my followers are from there and could benefit from this.

Please help me help our community by taking a minute of your time to send me info about any great resource you think our community could benefit from. I am not getting anything from anyone for this, and really am doing this to unite our community and provide a resource that I personally would’ve loved to have when I became a parent. If you have a culturally-enhancing business, this is where you could benefit as well and be listed as such. Thank you in advance! I feed off of your support and energy, and I hope you will help me with this!

If you are the owner of the business, here’s what I will need:

  • Name of your Business
  • Services you provide
  • Your contact info and where you are located

Please submit them in English. If you chose to write them in Farsi or Penglish, that would be an added bonus as well.

  1. We are a Persian/Farsi language immersion program for children ages 18 months-5 years old located in Newcastle, WA, minutes from Seattle and Bellevue. You can check out our website and Facebook page for free songs, activities, flashcards and more!

    • What a great program! It seems that we both share a lot of common ideas. Thank you for sharing your information with me!

  2. “Bahar Books” is a Persian book publishing based in New York. Our goal is to publish Farsi books for those children- and young adults- who are learning Persian as a second language. All Bahar Books’ publications are available for purchase through amazon.com in the U.S. and in Europe. We are adding new titles to the list of our publications almost every other month. For more information please visit our website: http://www.baharbooks.com; or search us at amazon.com/ books/ advanced search/ publisher: bahar books.

  3. My daughter is 1/4 Persian. I would love to help you with your list, but there are no Persian resources where I live.

    I am trying to do Persian as part of my preschool home schooling for my toddler, but it is difficult since I, myself,and her father do not speak Farsi.

    My daughter learns Farsi so much faster than I do, so I would really love to have more resources for self-teaching in her age group. I have the vocabulary trip app for I-pad “Farsi Trip” which she uses and enjoys. I am looking for more comprehensive programs, especially free online games that teach early reading skills for Farsi.

    She uses pbskids.org and nickjr.com games for learning all sorts of subjects in English. Is there something similar in Farsi? If you can find them and post links that would help your readers all over the world.

  4. Thank you!

    I apologize for taking so long to respond to your reply. I don’t know how I missed it before.

    Oznoz looks like a great resource! I will use it for other languages. I already have the DVDs for the two Hoosh Hoosh Bahoosh shows they have, which seem to be all they have for Persian.

    The Dino Lingo program looks promising, but of course is a lot more money. If I could read Farsi I would be searching iranian websites to see if there were kids TV shows that have educational games that you can play online. I tried searching using google translate, but I could not find any that way. Surely, there is something out there?

    If not, are there at least handheld electronic educational toys in Farsi that I could buy in (or ship to) the USA? I love to be able to hand my daughter something with a lot of buttons to push when we have to go for a long car ride.

    Thank you for your suggestions.
