So by learning Persian, you would essentially be learning some Arabic at the same time! Linguistically, Persian and Kurdish are also sister languages and are both in the Iranian branch, much like how English and German can be considered sister languages in the Germanic branch. The Kurdish languages belong to the Iranian branch of the Indo-European family, so Persian and Kurdish are very similar languages. Not only that, but according to Wikipedia, Reason number two to learn Persian is, Iran is a beautiful country.
It has a long and rich history with a very diverse and unique culture. Learning Persian will allow you to gain a new perspective about life in the Middle East. Besides, Iranian people are very friendly and hospitable toward foreigners, so they would be more than happy to help you with learning Persian. Iranian movies are famous throughout the Middle East, and most of the greatest movies and TV series in the Middle East were made in Iran.
Both movies were directed by the famous Iranian director Asghar Farhadi. From my own experience of watching Iranian movies since childhood, I believe there are many Iranian movies that deserve more than just one Oscar.
The problem is those movies are not known to people outside of Iran, and some of those movies have no English subtitles and are only produced for the local audience. Iran is also famous for dubbing almost every single Hollywood or famous movies around the world into Persian, and their dubbing skill is without a doubt the best one I have ever seen. I remember watching some dubbed Hollywood movies in Persian when I was young, and many years later after learning English I watched the same movie again in English and compared the two versions.
You might be surprised to hear this, but I almost always preferred the dubbed version! Fun fact: the dubbed versions that are made in Iran are always shorter than the originals since Iran censors and cuts out any part of the movie that they believe is harmful or unfit for society. Listening to Persian songs is also an excellent way to practice your listening, learn new words and phrases and enjoy the beauty of the Persian language and music at the same time.
