Addressing the unveiling ceremony of the Mina website for Persian Language Education, which was held online on Monday, Haddad-Adel said that, today, there is a meaningful relationship between power of a country and its leverage beyond its borders, IRNA reported.
Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Managing Director Abdulali Ali-Asgari and Saadi Foundation Deputy of Education and Research Reza Morad-Sahraei attended the ceremony.
Persian language learning has crossed borders, he said, adding that Persian has been the language of science and literature in many parts of Asia, from the Indian subcontinent to Central Asia, China, and Mesopotamia.
“It is our duty to preserve the Persian language inside Iran and spread it in neighboring countries,” he said.
The coronavirus limitations have created an opportunity to develop the country’s virtual infrastructure and spread the Persian language via online platforms.
He added that the number of Persian language students increased remarkably after the spread of the coronavirus, so that currently there are 20 Persian language courses for non-native speakers on online platforms.
Mina is an interactive system for teaching Persian to non-native learners. It includes various sections like entertainment, new words, strengthening four major skills, and assessment of progress and performance.
