16 weeks 2022 Persian Language Semester Program and Internship

Studying at ASPIRANTUM was a brilliant experience during which I not only greatly improved my Persian language ability but met an interesting variety of students from across the globe. Yerevan is a small city with lots of hidden treasures. Speaking with the people of this city has opened my eyes to the vast array of issues and culture of a city at a crossroads between the Middle East, Europe, and the old Soviet Union. A very interesting and valuable experience all in all!
