The website for Madrassah Al-Mahdi (aka The Institute for Language and Islamic Studies) has been updated. This is the school where all foreigners typically must go through in order to learn Farsi and also some introductory Islamic courses. The new website is very thorough and has many resources available, especially for anyone who wants to learn Farsi.
First of all, all the books that you learn at school over the span of 6-7 months have been uploaded onto the website. Alongside the books themselves, sample tests, audio/video presentations that you usually go through in class have also all been uploaded. This is a great resource, especially if you are attending the school and for some reason have to leave for a short while, you can still study while you are away and won’t miss much once you are back. Also, if anyone is preparing to attend the school they can even start skimming or studying through the books before-hand and be better prepared.
All 7 Farsi books with their 20 lessons plus extra material can be accessed over here. Sample tests for all the books can be downloaded over here – the tests include samples of mid-terms, finals and as well as dictation tests. There is also a decent chart with many Farsi verbs in their different tenses available here for download.
Besides Farsi, the website will soon have Arabic material as well which is also taught in the Madrassah. In regards to the Tamhidiyah program, those books and material can be accessed over here. They only have the Sarf and Nahw book materials uploaded so far, however they will soon be uploading the rest of the course material as well (Aqaid, Fiqh etc.).
