Iran launches Persian language courses in Uganda
Iran’s cultural attaché in Uganda has launched a new course in Persian language and literature in the capital of this East African nation.
The courses were launched with assistance from Tehran-based Saadi Foundation at Makerere University in Kampala.
The University is Uganda's largest and oldest institution of higher learning, first established as a technical school in 1922.
Officials from the University spoke about the significance and unique features of the Persian language.
Iran’s cultural attaché said the Persian language is the key to understanding Iran’s Islamic Revolution, the Islamic Republic and the nation’s rich history.
He said Persian language is taught in most higher education institutions in various countries of the world.
The cultural attaché said this language will open doors to a new world that is full of spirituality, humanity, culture, and knowledge.
