Persian lessons

Persian

Persian (or as the locals call it: Farsi) is the official language of Iran, Afganistan and Tajikistan, but it is also widely spoken in many other countries.  The Persian language has a very rich history and is part of the Indo European family.

New courses start in the week of 14 January 2019. Scroll down for the schedule.

The courses are in the CENTRE (Muiderstraat 24, Sint Nicolaasstraat 59 or Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 101, you will receive a confirmation of the exact location approximately 1 week before the course starts) or in WEST (Postjesweg 175).
