3 weeks 2020 Online Persian Language Summer School

In the period between the semesters of my studies I decided to join a 3 week upper elementary Persian online course. Despite being held online the experience was beyond my expectation.

Every class we covered grammer, reading, writing, listening and speaking. The intensity and quality of the classes drive me to practice Persian everyday and thus improve my skills in the language significantly. In 3 weeks I improved my knowledge about Persian and also about Iranian culture. 

Our wonderful teacher Ani, was patient and helpful. Even though our class consisted of students from all around the world and with different levels of Persian, Ani adjusted the class's content so that it would meet the level of all the students. Whenever I needed extra help all the staff were very supportive and willing to help at any time.

I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to boost their Persian level. I'm looking forward to joining the next summer course in Yerevan in person!
