Born in Aliabad, Nouran was raised in her home town with her 4 siblings until she was old enough to attend school. Her love for her family, her hometown are only paralleled by her love and dedication to her Faith (The Baha'i Faith). Nouran Pioneered to Taiwan and bore two children speaking to them in Persian, Mandarin and English (she was an English teacher at a local Taiwanese University). Leaving her beloved Taiwan due to work commitments, saw her resettle to live in Perth, Western Australia. Here she had her 3rd and final child in the local hospital on a Sunday afternoon. Nouran is a dedicated community builder, loving wife, mother & grandmother. She speaks fluent Persian, Mandarin & English (questionable English if you ask any of her three children). She is loved by all who cross her path due to her selfless and giving nature. She has endured many challenges in life and she overcomes them with her radiant and loving acquiescence. Her joy is an inspiration to us all. Bio written by her bias awe inspired daughter. Never interested in learning Persian, Mona Kiani was a Farsi School dropout. Resisting the persistent nag of her Persian parents, she evaded learning Persian despite her parents insistence. Fast forward a two decades. She's pregnant with her son. Realising she cant read and write Persian! She searches the recesses of the internet looking to find bilingual resources to help facilitate her sons learning. Her search was in vain. NOTHING. Englisi Farsi was born out of necessity. An Iranian Australian mother set on embracing her rich Persian heritage. Created with love for the Iranian diaspora; these books are designed to make learning Persian fun, interactive and relevant for the needs of mixed Iranian families today. Covering a wide variety of topics, they are an ideal platform to engage & inspire young minds. To nurture bilingual language development with a little [Kuchulu] help from the English alphabet. Persian. Pass it on.
I HIGHLY recommend these AWESOME new books! If you know anyone who is speaking Persian to their children or wants them to learn Persian words but cannot read in Persian, this series solves their problem!There are so many reasons I love these books: 1) Persian/English/and Finglisi (complete with pronunciations!)2) Beautiful illustrations3) Great for beginning readers-simple text.4) There's an app to help with pronunciation.5) Useful website with a wealth of information for parents of Persian language learners.6) A book about virtues...I've been looking for that for years and so grateful to have finally found one...in Persian!7) Attention to detail...very well done!
