According to available documents, Persian Language, also known as Farsi (فارسی), is “the only Iranian language” belonging to the Indo-Iranian languages, a subfamily of the Indo-European languages. It is the language of Iran (formerly Persia) and is also widely spoken in Afghanistan and, in an archaic form, in Tajikistan and the Pamir Mountain region and considered part of Greater Iran. In Afghanistan, Persian is known as Dari (درى) or Dari-Persian, while in Tajikistan it’s known as Tajiki (Тоҷики / تاجيكى). There are approximately 110 million Persian speakers worldwide.
In general, Iranian languages are known from three periods, usually referred to as Old, Middle, and New (Modern) periods. These correspond to three eras in Iranian history; Old era being the period from sometime before Achaemenids, the Achaemenid era and sometime after Achaemenids (that is to 400–300 BC), Middle era being the next period most officially Sassanid era and sometime in post-Sassanid era, and the New era being the period afterward down to present day.

The PERSIA-G approach is one way to organize how the people lived in a society at a certain time in history, and thus helps students to understand their culture. The PERSIA-G graphic organizer is an acronym for the seven human concerns that people have had throughout history. These concerns are expressed in seven general areas and by seven questions:
Political: Who shall be in charge?
Economic: How shall we make a living?
Religious: What shall we believe?
Social: How shall we relate to each other?
Intellectual: How shall we learn?
Artistic: How shall we express ourselves?
Geography – climate, nature, landforms, plants, animals, environment, natural phenomena or disaster
The answers to these six questions – in different times and places – have created different kinds of political, economic, religious, social, intellectual, and artistic institutions. All these institutions form the cultural components of a people at a particular time and place.
