16 weeks 2023 Persian Language Semester Program and Internship

My time at the Aspirantum School of Languages has significantly boosted my Persian ability. 

The professors that have taught us have been truly excellent. The opportunity to be guided by globally renowned experts is a truly unique experience that has led to far greater insights into the Persian language and culture than I had expected before coming here. While the classroom experience is excellent, one of the true strengths of the program is the cultural opportunities outside of class. Before coming to the school, one of my main worries was that there would be no opportunities to speak Persian in daily life. These fears were quickly dispelled as our program director, Khachik, introduced us to many Iranians. At the same time, our professors were able to recommend shops run by Iranians where we could practice our skills. The trips organized outside of Yerevan were always interesting and left me with a greater sense and understanding of the great tapestry that is the Armenian culture. Overall, I highly recommend Aspirantum’s program to any Persian language student.

“The level of knowledge that I gained about the Persian language was incredible, and it really is hard to believe how far I’ve come in just a few months. The instructors are fantastic and are some of the kindest and most intelligent people I’ve ever met in my life.”

“Every day, we have been able to practice our reading, writing, listening, and speaking of the Persian language. Professor Voskanyan and Ms. Beyt-Movsess are incredibly knowledgeable about linguistics in general and Persian culture, literature, and history. I have been introduced to more exciting topics than I could have imagined before my time here in Armenia.”
