Returning to Isfahan

By November 23, 2011News

Returning to Isfahan | Language on the MoveAccording to a Persian saying Isfahan is nesf-e jahan (‘Half the World’). As some of our regular readers might recall, I visited ‘Half the World’ as part of the Language-on-the-Move Middle East Tour last year. In addition to delivering a guest lecture at Isfahan University, I also caught up with multilingual souvenir vendors in the city. A year on and I am delighted to be coming back for the 2nd ever Language-on-the-Move Workshop (the 1st one was at the University of Tehran)! I’m very much looking forward to seeing the many Language-on-the-Move team members based in Isfahan again and to meeting our many readers from that city. If you are in Isfahan on the 19th and 20th of Azar (=10th and 11th of December), mark your diaries!

    I am jealous of you, Vahid. From the current situation, Kunming has to be very very patient to be in the waiting list of 2013!
