How to learn Farsi? 

The 6 weeks Persian language summer school offers 140 hours of intensive Persian language classes during 30 days of teaching (from Monday till Friday each week). Every day the participants will receive Persian language instruction for 4 hours as well as after class lectures and extra trainings.

During the Persian language summer classes the following components will be covered every day to foster the Persian language knowledge of participants:

Grammar: Every day class will cover the main grammatical concepts of modern Persian language as well as parallels with classical Persian.

Vocabulary: During the 6 weeks course it is anticipated that the participants will learn around 1000 new Persian words from literary language as well as words used in everyday life.

Listening: The classes are scheduled in a way that participants with the guidance of an experienced instructor learn the Persian language through songs and movies as well as watching and listening to news and other short videos about interesting and sometimes funny topics and stories about Iranian realities.

Speaking: Every day the Persian language classes will push the students to exercise their speaking abilities through discussions, conversations and role plays about different texts and topics.

Writing: Each day the participants of the Persian language class will have assignments and homework to complete for the next day and the homework will primarily involve writing assignments.

Reading: Every day students will read and discuss political texts, prose and poetry, conversations and news. The corpus of texts to be read and discussed during the classes comprises different prominent Persian authors, daily conversations as well as news of the day.
