I have been studying the Persian language for 2 years and I want to extend my studies. I would love to go to Iran one day, but the next closest/safest place would be Tajikistan. I would love to go to Tajikistan for Summer of 2017 because it would increase my language skills, and let me see another part of the world that I have not traveled to yet. I would love become an advanced persian speaker, and going to Tajikstan would help me get immersed in the language. I want to travel all around the world, and going to Tajikistan will kickstart my journey.
