I tried putting this into google translate, but the output didn't make any sense to me. Could anyone please help me translate the conversation and the tone, please? Thank you very much. Followup questions will most likely come after. [more inside]

What language is this? The two things I remember sounded like "nazoor sun" and "sollaar sun" for how are you and fine thanks, or similar. The guy who taught me speaks several languages including Farsi, Arabic, Azerji and Turkish, but googling hasn't worked for me. What was he teaching me? I'd like to learn some phrases in that language to surprise him with next time I see him.

I'm looking for best practices and recommended fonts for typesetting Somali, Farsi, Tamil, Pashto and Punjabi (not sure which script yet). Do you read these languages? Can you point me in the direction of some good-looking examples? Thanks in advance!

I've been asked to read a Persian poem for a friend's Persian/Taiwanese wedding, and I am beginning to panic as the date approaches. I can speak and understand some rudimentary Farsi, but that is not helping me very much in my search. [more inside]

Just picked up Rosetta Stone for Farsi- any strategies for using the program? How should I pace myself? Tips for getting the most out of my experience?
Other tips for learning Farsi also appreciated.

Persian/Farsi question--what would you call pickled sour grapes? Torshi Angoor
? I've checked google and the store-bought jar in my fridge, so I know those answers. I want to know what you or your Persian family/friends would call it.

Google-Fu has failed me. I seek a searchable archive of Ferdowsi's poetry online. Something where I can type in a few words (either in farsi or in pinglish) and get back the poems that have those words.
Failing that, can anyone find me the full text in farsi of the poem that ends "har aan kas ke daarad hoosh va rai va din/ pas az marg bar man konad aafarin".
