New video has emerged online showing US soldiers and army personnel studying to learn the Persian language.
The video dates back to the early 1960s, featuring how some US soldiers in a language class are learning Persian as a Foreign Language through the repetition of words and chunks of sentences.
What you see in the attached video is part of a US Army film titled 'Assignment Iran' from its long-running “Big Picture” series.
The Big Picture is an American documentary television program consisting of documentary films produced by the United States Army.
Learning the Persian language by American soldiers in the video can be interpreted as part of implementing hegemonic policies of the US in Iran before the Islamic Revolution.
