He went on, “Among our future plans is to organize an advanced English course for Iranian seminary students in an African country.”
The head of the seminary group which attended the Arabic course in Lebanon, Hujjat al-Islam Mousavi-Azad, presented a report on the activities of the group during their trip to Lebanon.
He also emphasized the need for planning effective strategies for seminary students for the years to come.
