ajabanzabAn Introduces Persian-English Magnetic Word Play Kits
Los Angeles, CA - March 31, 2005 - ajabanzabAn.com
introduces three new Persian-English Magnetic Word Play kits to help you bond
with the Persian language. The kits are fun, educational and will spark
creativity! The words for each kit are chosen around a theme. The three
themes/kits are: Standard (motedAvel), Courtship (xAstegAri) and Pleasantries
(t'Arof). The kits also include an engaging instruction sheet with tips on
grammar and an alphabet card to ease you back into the script. The kits are
$19.95 and can be purchased now at http://ajabanzaban.com/ecommerce/os/catalog/
Each kit has over 600 words and word particles
screenprinted on magnetic tiles. The words can be combined to create literally
billions of different expressive, meaningful phrases, sentences and soundbites
and the word particles help with grammatical functionality.
The Persian words are printed in black ink on the
white side of the magnets. On the other side of each magnet you will find the
transliteration (the way the word sounds in Persian, spelled out in English
letters) and translation (definition) of the word in English. Both sides of the
magnet will stick to metal and can be used for word play fun!
These kits are great for people of all language
abilities. Those of you who are fluent in Persian can jump right in and play
with this fabulous language the way English speakers play with English word
magnets. It's not so much about education at this level, but about fun and not
taking words for granted. You put all these words on the refrigerator or other
metal surface and then compose by putting them together in fun, unexpected ways.
In this way, you will find your creativity sparking all day long - or whenever
you pass by the fridge.
Many of you outside of Iran are a bit rusty with
the Persian language, perhaps even intimidated by or frustrated with the written
language. Maybe your vocabulary has been shrinking. Persian-English magnets to
the rescue! The English transliteration and translation are right there on the
back, like training wheels that you won't need for long. That's because when you
play with these word magnets, you will be fluent in no time. Your brain will
soon be subconsciously recognizing written Persian words without any effort. And
best of all, it's fun!
Finally, for those of you who don't know any
Persian at all, this kit is no substitute for classes in Persian. However, you
will be amazed at how much fun you can get out of these magnets anyway. You have
the English side to play with, and I have actually seen English-only speakers
begin to decipher the Persian alphabet just after turning over a few of the
magnets. You can just see their brains whirring as they map out the connections
between letters and sounds. And it's really cool to be able to read the
mysterious Persian script.
