10 weeks (or 4-9 weeks) 2024 Persian Language Summer School

Over the course of my time studying Persian with ASPIRANTUM, I had the valuable opportunity to engage with a wealth of Persian topics and texts. I can say with certainty that my Persian skills are all the better for it. I am grateful to have made so many meaningful connections with the wonderful people I met through the program, as well as Iran’s rich history and culture.

“The fact that the topics we covered were always interesting meant that I never found myself bored in class. It helped that both my teachers were outstanding; I have never met someone with such a thorough understanding of Persian!”

“I think that the last weeks have helped me build a solid foundation on which to go from intermediate to advanced level. Since finishing the course, I have begun to read a primary source in Persian, which I am not convinced I would have been able to do before, at least not as quickly or comfortably.”

“The only thing I wish is that I’d been able to stay for the full 8-week course, and I definitely recommend anyone thinking about participating to stay as long as possible to maximize the fruits reaped.”
