Iran set to strengthen Asian languages teaching against English

TEHRAN – The Supreme Cultural Revolution Council has been commissioned to propagate substitute languages for English in the education system, says a senior scholar and politician.

Gholam-Ali Haddad Adel, a sitting MP who chairs the Majlis Cultural Committee, said the move comes after the Supreme Leader called for paying attention to a diversity of languages including Asians rather than English alone, Mizan reported on Sunday.
