Welcome to the Omniglot forum!
You know Dari but you're studying Persian? The way I understand it, Dari is a dialect of Persian. I guess you're studying the Farsi/Iranian dialect, then?

I think it's more like they're different but closely related languages, like Norwegian and Swedish or Hindi and Urdu.

Hmmm. I would argue that Hindi & Urdu are part of a single dialect continuum called Hindustani, which is one language. Both Standard Hindi & Standard Urdu are based on Khariboli, the prestige dialect of Hindustani.
