In this episode, we welcome Azadeh Aghighi, a native Persian (Farsi) speaker from Tehran, Iran who teaches Arabic at Indiana University and is working on her Ph.D. in Islamic Theology at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures. Azadeh will discuss with us Farsi, the Persian language spoken natively by more than 110 million people in both Central Asia and the Middle East.
