Iran to use cyberspace to promote Persian language education

Iran’s Saadi Foundation, a Tehran-based organization that promotes the Persian language abroad, is planning to use scientific methods and the cyberspace to further improve the Persian language study across the world.

The plan was made public by Gholam-Ali Haddad Adel, chairman of the foundation, in his address to a ceremony to unveil an interactive multimedia software, dubbed “The First Step,” in Tehran on Sunday, Press TV reported.

According to Haddad Adel, to achieve its goal which is promotion of the Persian language study among non-Persian language speakers, the Saadi Foundation has used two strategies.

These strategies, he explained, included the teaching of Persian language to non-Persian language speakers by using scientific methods and utilizing cyberspace capabilities to teach the language in the globe.

He noted that the foundation has complied tens of books in fields ranging from vacbulary and writing to reading and linguistics at different levels and for various countries, and work still continues in this regard.

Haddad Adel added that the body has also tried to boost its software capabilities to facilitate access of the Persian language for those who are interested overseas.

He said "The First Step” is both in Persian and English languages but it can be developed for compatibility with other languages in the future.

Following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus pandemic, the use of cyberspace has highly increased in the world, he said and noted that the Saadi Foundation has also succeeded in making use of the positive atmosphere as it is now unveiling this interactive software.

The Tehran-based organization launched a virtual teacher training course in May which is aimed at promoting the Persian language, supporting the Persian language centers across the world, enhancing the quality of Persian language teaching and facilitating access of teachers and enthusiasts to such courses.
