I come from a country where culture and language are deeply intertwined. Among the many aspects of my homeland that makes me proud is its diversity of languages. Languages are like colored lenses through which we view the world. You can observe a beautiful rainbow when you consider the diverse languages. Each color is unique and has its own characteristics, beauty, and wonders. Learn Farsi so you can read Rumi’s sublime poetry, as well as Kurdish and Arabic to listen to songs from the past. By learning the Azari language of Iran, you will be able to appreciate Turkish songs in a different light, just as you will be able to appreciate folk tales from the north and east of Iran by learning Balouchi and Mazandarani.
