Discovering the language

Persian is a language spoken by 120,000,000 speakers around the world today. As the official language of Iran, it is also spoken in Afghanistan and Tajikistan. There are also Persian-speaking populations in the various republics of Central Asia, which adds to an already large and active diaspora in the USA, Canada, Europe, etc.

It is therefore appropriate to teach this language language in Iranian Persian, which is its majority standard form and yet also do introductions to other forms of speech, in particular Dari Persian.
