Abstract

Observations of “wear and tear” in books for self-study in Farsi (Persian) in a Los Angeles library revealed that few readers persevered beyond the first few pages. The library was in a neighbourhood where there were a considerable number of families from Iran, suggesting that the potential readers were interested in improving their heritage language, but found the traditional method unappealing.
