16 weeks 2023 Persian Language Semester Program and Internship

Aspirantum has genuinely been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

The Persian Language Semester Program has given me a vast new wealth of knowledge I will keep for the rest of my life. The program has an excellent curriculum that covers everything from ancient Persian empires to the modern Iranian film industry, and there is a topic that everyone will have a particular interest in. 

Studying in Armenia gives a unique opportunity to learn about the culture of two countries through the Persian language. The program director at Aspirantum is excellent and does everything he can to ensure the best educational experience for everyone, including traveling throughout Armenia for cultural immersion. The instructors are also experts in their fields and excellent teachers. It is evident that they truly care about our learning and our success. 

Due to the small number of students in the class, everyone can receive individual attention to improve their specific learning needs. Also, it is extremely beneficial that a part of the semester is spent studying a topic of your own interest for a research paper and presentation, which encourages interacting with the language as much as possible outside of the classroom. This semester at Aspirantum has been a very informative experience that significantly strengthened my desire to continue learning the Persian language and culture of Iran.

“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.”

“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.”
