CAIS is offering a five-week course in Persian over the Winter mid-year break. This Elementary Persian course aims at developing students’ abilities to read and write Modern Standard Persian, and acquire basic oral skills to interact in limited aspects of everyday life situations. Emphasis is on mastering the Persian alphabet, its sound system and its pronunciation.
This course assumes no previous knowledge of the language. It covers the Persian script and basic grammar rules. It is designed to develop the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing by the use of oral and written drills, supported by audio-visual material. On completion of the course students will have acquired: the ability to read and understand a range of simple Persian sentences within a vocabulary range of 100-150 of the most commonly used words; the ability to speak at a basic level in Persian and elementary knowledge of some Persian cultural practices and traditions. The course will consist of five hours of classes per week over five weeks from 19 June — 19 July 2018.
If you enjoy this course you can continue your studies with either an in-class or online Introductory Persian course.
