Iranian University Launches Persian-Language Programs for Foreigners

Providing such infrastructures can promote standards of the university to reach the position it deserves, the Head of International Collaborations Office of the University Nasser Qoli Sarli said.

Dean of Kharazmi University Azizollah Habibi, deputy for promotion of the Persian Language and literature in foreign countries Bahador Baqeri, head of the Persian Department of Kharazmi University Mohammad Shadryee Manesh, and Sarli attended the ceremony. 

In March 24, 1994, Iran decided to establish Persian Language for foreigners as major at universities. Ever since then, many major Iranian universities, including Tehran, Allame Tabatabaee, Isfahan, Tarbiat-Modarres universities, have founded the departments and centers for that purpose.

Early in October, the office of Iranian cultural attaché in Azerbaijani capital city of Baku opened training courses in Shahriar House of Culture to offer training courses to the people of Azerbaijan.

The opening was concurrent with the start of the new academic year and was participated by Iranian cultural attaché in Baku Asghar Farsi, instructors and students of the center.

The Iranian cultural center is offering courses in Farsi (Persian) language, computer, painting and tailoring and the classes were visited by the Iranian cultural attaches after the opening ceremony. During his tour of the classes, Farsi had conversations with a number of Azerbaijani citizens participating in the classes.

During his visit to the Persian Language and Literature class, Farsi referred to the historical and cultural similarities between the two countries, and said being familiar with Persian is the key to understand the treasure of Iranian literature.

Iran's cultural attache went on to visit computer, painting and tailoring classes to monitor the quality of the classes.
