Studying in Esfahan
There are almost two choices for people who wish to study the Persian language in Iran. Dehkhoder at Tehran and University of Esfahan. Dehkhoder is a famous as the subordinate of the University of Tehran, and institute in Esfahan is also a lower branch of University. Both have some pros and cons, and then I chose the city of Esfahan.
The City of Esfahan, its advantages
First of all, as the famous word Esfahan is the half of the world represents, Esfahan is one of the beautiful city in Iran. The river flows in the middle of city and it contains several World Heritage Sites. Comparing to Tehran, which is the capital and busiest city, Esfahan is a quiet and cozy environment. There is less annoying traffic or air pollution.(Esfahan sill have some though.) And you have to remember that people of Esfahan are more conservative than those of Tehran.
People of Esfahan is known as stinginess and has a Persian dialect. You may be a little confused if you try to speak in the city, but the course is offered in the Modern Standard Persian.
