On learning Farsi (Persian)
I took Chinese (Mandarin) in university but since I moved to Qatar I lost most of it. I've recently started learning Farsi with help of an Afghan friend (a native Farsi speaker) but I've to say I'm not happy with the progress so far. I hope one day I would be walking leisurely in the streets of Tehran casually chatting with friends in Persian, someday.
