Video: Overview of the Persian or Farsi Language (فارسی)

Persian language overview video

The lowdown on Persian

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of Persian including:

  • its history
  • where it is spoken (global distribution)
  • background on the writing system
  • what other languages have influenced it
  • what regional Persian varieties exist
  • very much more

Paul includes example samples of the Persian language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.

Words from the videographer

In this video I talk about the Persian language (Farsi, Dari, Tajik) and what`s fascinating about it. Persian often lives in the shadow of Arabic, but Persian is a major language in its own right.

Persian speakers

Persian is spoken by roughly 110 million people, mostly in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan.
