Similarities Between Armenian and Persian
Shahrzad (Persian speaker) and Steven (Armenian speaker) compare the Persian and Armenian languages. Armenian and Persian are both Indo-European languages. There are two standard forms of written Modern Armenian, Western Armenian (spoken in many communities of Armenian diaspora) and Eastern Armenian (the official language of the Republic of Armenia). Persian (Farsi) is primarily spoken in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan, and some other regions which historically were considered part of Greater Iran.
