This is NOT an official Army-sanctioned webpage. This is just an NCO trying to help other Soldiers out. Whatever my opinions are on here are not to be considered the opinions of the Army, or even considered fact. All information presented should be double-checked with your CLPM and Retention NCO/Recruiter, or double-checked in the Army Regulation or message provided. Despite my best efforts and collaboration with other NCOs, I am sometimes wrong and you shouldn't base your enlistment/re-enlistment solely on what I have to say, but rather use this information as a base for your research.

Awesome combination for studying Farsi:

Ok, so I have mentioned in the past about Word Champ.  Word Champ allows you to hover your mouse cursor over a word and it will translate for you.  However, Word Champ doesn't work with the Defense Language Institute's "GLOSS" program for some reason.  So what I did was, I copied all 115 or so articles from the GLOSS website and created a blog just with those articles.  I highly suggest checking it out if you are a Persian Farsi or Dari linguist.

And of course Word Champ can be found at (UPDATE: Word Champ has been taken offline, boo!)

And as I stated before, I highly recommend the Flashcards Deluxe app from iTunes if you are an Apple user.
