Whilst trying to pick up the Persian language, I had difficulty finding an alphabet sheet online that was freely available for download. I needed a sheet which summarised the Persian alphabet, next to its phonetical sound and examples of how to write the script.
In response, I created this sheet with all 32 consonants and vowels in the Persian alphabet, and to explain how the alphabet is pronounced phonetically.
