We have also learned that forcing children to speak Farsi without getting them first motivated,  will only discourage them further.  

In parents workshop, we will cover a variety of subjects that is related to children's learning process.  Their approach to learning Farsi and their passion for it, which is a necessity  for their connection to the study material,  is directly resulted of their parents wrong or right approach.
