Persian - also known as Farsi
To the untrained eye it closely resembles the Arabic script... with a lot of exotic characters and, on top of that, the reverse writing direction: here you read from right to left! Persian is spoken mainly in Central and Southwest Asia. It is an Indo-European language. Persian is the official language of Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. Approx. 65 million people speak Persian as their native language. Most of them live in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. And why is Persian sometimes called Farsi? Farsi is the Iranian name for Persian. In Afghanistan and Pakistan, on the other hand, it is called Dari.
The Persian alphabet
Persian and Arabic are unrelated: Persian is an Indo-European language, whereas Arabic is a Semitic language of the Afro-Asiatic family. And yet, the Arabic script has been used since the Islamisation of Persia. Although the alphabet has been extended by four letters.
