To better understand Iranians and to practice the Persian language, the Persian classes of Prof. Fattaneh Vali Naeymi-Rad, undertook a video interview project. This project involved interviewing local Iranian refugee and asylum seekers who had to escape Iran for various reasons. The interviews were conducted completely in Persian, with rare exceptions for clarifications. See the videos on the Persian in Triangle website, a section of the Languages in Durham CBLI project.
