3 weeks 2023 Middle Persian (Pahlavi) Online School

I enjoyed the Middle Persian class. Our instructor, Ruben, was doing a great lesson. I never get bored. Most importantly, I learned to read Middle Persian texts and inscriptions. I never thought I would be able to do that in 3 weeks. We learned about the Middle Persian period's history, geography, and literature. Ruben was always there for us to answer any question; he was kind and calm. He has a strong love and knowledge of his field. I learned so many things through this class. One of the best teachers that I ever had. I hope that I will enjoy in the future more lessons.

“The fact that Armenian has retained a staggering number of Middle Iranian loan words, and Ruben’s ability to masterfully cast light on such historical linguistics contacts, makes ASPIRANTUM the ideal place for studying Middle Persian.”
