3 weeks 2020 Online Persian Language School

The 3 week upper elementary Persian course was the best online learning experience I've ever had. The programme was very well structured. We covered grammar, reading, writing, speaking and listening which gave a very thorough grounding and increased my confidence in every area. 

Our teacher Ani was amazing and our group was also very supportive. Ani was an expert at tailoring the content to meet each participant's level with just the right amount of challenge. Overall this created a lovely atmosphere to learn in.

All of the staff were so supportive and willing to provide extra help whenever needed. Despite not being confident at the start, I never felt intimidated and I noticed a lot of improvement in my Persian over the three weeks.

Overall this has been an amazing experience and I hope I can visit Aspirantum in Yerevan soon!
