The school began in 1991 with a handful of students in Toronto and Vancouver. By 1995 the school opened additional centers in Dallas, Houston, London, Duesseldorf and Nice. Following this international success, we also became established in Atlanta, Los Angeles Minneapolis, Aarhus, Copenhagen, Barcelona and Rome. Since 2020, we have expanded our horizon and we are committed more than ever to provide online services to any individuals aiming to learn Farsi anywhere in the world.


Our mission is to provide a friendly and effective environment for eager individuals from all backgrounds to learn Farsi and to preserve the culture, literature and authentic traditions of Iran and other Farsi-speaking nations. To achieve this goal, cultural programs are organised which consist of students performing music, singing, dances, poetry and theatrical performances. We pride ourselves in creating a safe and family-oriented environment across our centers worldwide. Many of our students make life-long friends and stay in touch even after graduating. Some alumni return to volunteer to give back to the community the values and skills they’ve learnt from the school.
