Details here. I didn't go on Thorntree for a couple of years so I think my post got deleted, but I have had many private emails over the years about Dehkhoda, so I thought it would be a good idea to post a shorter version of the info here. If you are reading this, you are probably well acquainted with the pitfalls of Iranian bureaucracy. Getting a student visa is much harder and takes much more time than getting a tourist visa. This goes for all of Iran. Allow six months. You give the embassy a letter from your Persian lecturer, and they give you a one-month visa that is conditional on you turning up to Dehkhoda and enrolling.
You go to Dehkhoda, they check that you are indeed on the verge of getting your authorisation number. There are plenty of Americans here, but they all have dual citizenship, and applied with the second passport. If your dad is Iranian you are automatically considered to be Iranian as well.
When you arrive, you enrol, pay, and take a quick placement test. They get you to write a little about yourself and verbally explain a cartoon. The levels are listed on the website. In both classes you will get a little bit of homework every day. In Advanced 2 we have to read and then verbally summarise a small newspaper article, plus finish a page of our booklet.
The intensive classes are 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, which is honestly fine if you're in the country for a short period of time. The students who take them are usually living in Iran for a longer period of time. Fight this if you can! You will be offered a place in one of the many khabgahs dormitories if you want to take it. Be aware that these are filthy, expensive, lock you out after pm, and you are going to be living six to a room.
If you are lucky you will be placed in nearby Velenjak, but many usually the boys are sent off to the middle of the city where it takes them an hour and a half to get to uni every day. You can probably live as far as Vanak, about a 30min busride away.
Any further and you are facing a long commute to make your 9am class in the Tehran morning traffic jam. You may have no other option though. You have two other options: renting a room from Iranians, or if you are going to be living here for a long time , renting your own apartment. Keep in mind that if you live with a family, particularly one with older people, you are probably going to be bound to their rules. This might include coming home very early or constantly being asked what you are doing.
Also keep in mind that the culture is different, so if you are a girl, I would try to avoid living with Iranian guys until you understand the rules a little better. I personally highly, highly recommend staying with Iranians if you care about your language skills.
Phones: easy to get a sim card from Tajrish square. MTN Iran or Irancell is good. Only Iranians can buy a simcard, but they will sell them to khareji and just put it in their name. You must get a sim card, phones are important to social life here. Clothes for women: A quick Google search will answer your queries. Do bring a pair of heels, important for parties.

Process: You fill out some forms and send through some documents to Dehkhoda note: scan and email everything. The fax machine never works. Dehkhoda apply on your behalf to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for an authorisation code.
They tell you the MFA have accepted you, and you continue to wait for your authorisation code When they receive it, they will send it both to you and to the embassy you nominated on your application form. Once you arrive at Dehkhoda and enrol in your classes, you are given an appointment time with a very nice lady who will take your passport and extend your student visa for three months.
Have visa, want to study When you arrive, you enrol, pay, and take a quick placement test. Renting from Iranians: there is a noticeboard outside the level 4 office at Dehkhoda with notices for rooms for let. If you feel brave, stay in a hotel for a couple of nights when you first get here or Couchsurf and then try to arrange one of these. Typically you will live with Iranians, just renting one room from them. NB with the currency crisis it might be more now Keep in mind that if you live with a family, particularly one with older people, you are probably going to be bound to their rules.
Renting your own apartment: I have no idea how you would go about doing this. I brought in American dollars, in cash, and have been exchanging it slowly at the saraffi money exchange. Again this was before the currency crisis.
Also my host family was providing some of my meals. OK, I hope this helps. If you have any questions feel free to leave me a message. View last reply. That was very informative.

Loghatnameh Dehkhoda Institute & International Center for Persian Studies
It was first published in It traces the historical development of the Persian language, providing a comprehensive resource to scholars and academic researchers, as well as describing usage in its many variations throughout the world. The complete work is an ongoing effort that has taken over forty-five years of effort by Ali-Akbar Dehkhoda and a cadre of other experts. Although Dehkhoda covers a big part of literary terms and words in Persian , the first edition of it lacks most scientific and technology terms coined by the Academy of Persian Language and Literature during the past decades. However the newer editions cover them. The newer editions have been published yearly by the University of Tehran.
