16 weeks 2023 Persian Language Semester Program and Internship

My time at ASPIRANTUM has been an all-encompassing experience. 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.

In addition to the classroom experience, Khachik has ensured that our time in Armenia has also included an intense dive into Armenia’s history, with six weekends of traveling through the country to various historical and cultural sites, taking us to dinners at fabulous restaurants and eating fantastic Armenian food.

Both of our professors, as well as Khachik, were very available during our semester. Khachik has helped us with any issues we have had with our apartment. Professor Voskanyan welcomed us to the Iranian studies department at Yerevan University and showed us around. Additionally, Ani taught us Armenian outside of class and connected us with different businesses and tour guides whenever we were interested.

“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.”
