Do I have to learn Farsi? Is it easy, difficult, what happens?

The majority of Iranians only speak Farsi, from shop owners to taxi drivers, it’s rare to find someone that knows any English. Also, the majority of your early studies will be in Farsi – thus learning Farsi is vital to your success as a foreign student in Qom. This may seem like a daunting challenge, however, rest assured that the Islamic Seminary has made the process of learning this historic and beautiful language very easy. There are students from China that start speaking and reading Farsi books in a short time frame of 6 to 8 months.
