Learning ZazakiBıvurne

Silav. There is a book that Turkish Schools use for teaching Zazaki to fifth grade students. It may be very helpful. It also has the Kurmanci version, so you can compare them and make sense.

Also one thing you should be aware of gender rules in Zazaki. Almost every word has a gender (feminine and masculine) and that shapes all sentences. --Xosere (mesac) 04:24, 13 Gulane 2013 (UTC)

Kurdî û îranîBıvurne

My friend, do you think really that kurdish languages are iranians? Past a time linguistics did considere armenian as iranian, because there were a lot of iranian loanwords! That's the same for kurdish, i am sure that kurdish is an independat lauguage but not iranian! --Alsace38 (mesac) 20:12, 13 Gulane 2013 (UTC)

The word îranî is confused with Arî. Therefore, I think it is better to say Arî languages. --Xosere (mesac) 20:16, 13 Gulane 2013 (UTC)

Well, I'm not a linguist, but as I grow up in Iran, I know Farsi(the official language of Iran), just like my mother tongue, Kurdi(as we call it so). Then I can see lots of similarities between Kurdi and Farsi, but despite this similarities if a Kurd person live whole his/her life among Fars people you can easily understand that he/she is of Kurdish origin, because he/she tries to use Farsi words in sentences which is structurally Kurdi.

Mûzika zazakîBıvurne

You know kurdish zaza music is also very good, I give you some famous music, you can learn them, it is a good way to learn west-kurdish (kurdiya rojava=zazakî)

This is not very good, its great, specially the first two ones, I love them, the pictures are that beautiful that touches my soul.
