ACCEPT Ambassadors

ACCEPT AMBASSADOR:

As we all know, ACCEPT are traveling the world and visited about 48 countries in 3 years, several times. They are known for their very close and personal connection to their fans. And yet – due to their busy schedules, they are not able to really get to know what they are longing to know about the countries they visit. ACCEPT feel so connected to other cultures and people, always distinguished themselves as world citizens and live and think without borders, always have, always will.

Therefore, ACCEPT nominated one AMBASSADOR for each country, who is the representative of his/her country to us and our Representative in his/her country. His/her duty is to be a role model as well as give us information about their country, the culture and anything that is of importance to them. The AMBASSADOR should invite as many friends and fans to contribute and share their world with all of us. Welcome to this exciting adventure…

Post Know Iran Better

Somewhere on the earth, where the east meets the west and the high mountains of Alborz reach the towers of Zagros, there is a land which is called Iran and has been there for thousands years. The land is also known as Persia, which is a legacy from ancient days when the Persian empire ruled half of the earth. In the land of one of the world's oldest civilizations, the sun rises from the east and goes down in the west, but she sees 10 cultures living together as one...

Iran is the 18th-largest country in the world, to understand how big it is; its area roughly equals that of the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Germany combined. It is bordered by Afghanistan and Pakistan on the east, by Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, with Kazakhstan and Russia in the north and the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman in the south and in the west by Iraq and Turkey.

Where did the name come from?

The name's root comes from Aryānā and it means the land of Aryans. Historically, Iran has been referred to as "Persia" or "Pars." There are also other names used by Iranian people, such as "Irānshahr" or "Iranzamin."

What is the language?

Most Iranian people use Farsi which is the official language too. But there are more than 10 different live languages in Iran, eg Kurdish, Turkish, Azeri, Gilaki, Mazerooni, Arabic ...etc.

The Farsi alphabet has 32 letters and its own grammar.When I explained it to a British friend, she said: "It is just opposite of English grammar." It is not so simple though! The best way to explain it is: its grammar is similar to that of many contemporary European languages. But you will be surprised to hear some English or French words in Farsi. Farsi is classified as a continuation of Middle Persian, the official religious and literary language of Sassanid Persia, itself a continuation of Old Persian, the language of the Persian Empire in the Achaemenid era.

Recently, in the last 10 years, Iranian people started to learn foreign languages, the main ones being English, French and German.
