Ferdowsi School of Persian Literature - Learn Persian Language and Literature Online

Learn Persian with us

Hello! My name is Ruben Nikoghosyan (Yerevan, Armenia), and I am excited to welcome you to my small, yet ambitious project! I have called my school by the name of the greatest poet of Iran, Ferdowsi of Tus, not by chance. During long years of studying and teaching Persian language and literature, Ferdowsi’s epic masterpiece always inspired me to delve deeper into the treasure-troves of this vast and deep ocean called Persian literature. I have made it a lifetime mission for myself to explore the vast expenses of this ocean of mystery! Do you also want to participate in this blessed quest and drink from the goblet of love and wisdom? I am inviting you to join me in this long yet infinitely enjoyable journey!
