Iran Heritage Foundation (IHF) is a non-political UK registered charity, with the mission to promote and preserve the history, languages and cultures of Iran and the Persian-speaking world.

We sponsor academic research, publications and fellowships, as well as diverse public programmes focusing on both ancient and modern Iran. We have partnered with major museums (e.g., the British Museum, the V&A, the British Library and the Freer-Sackler Gallery) and universities  (e.g., Cambridge, Oxford, SOAS, St. Andrews and Edinburgh) to bring some of the world’s best expertise to our programmes.

Persian Language Online is one of the IHF’s flagship projects devoted to providing online language learning resources for anyone interested in learning Persian.  During this difficult time where many of us find ourselves housebound, Persian Language Online offers a wealth of practice texts, dialogues, animations and regular blogposts relating to Persian language and culture which will occupy you from your very first attempts at the Persian script, to forays into the vast world of Persian poetry and literature. 
Persian Language Online is an internet resource supported by the Iran Heritage Foundation. It is intended to serve as a free-to-access, comprehensive, aid to anyone who wants to learn Persian.  Visit the website here.

Our main source of funding is donations from businesses and individuals. No financial support is received or accepted from any government or political organisation.

Please support your IHF, and help us maintain these unique and valuable programmes into the future.
