10 weeks (or 5-9 weeks) 2025 Persian Language Summer School

I think the ASPIRANTUM Persian course was a perfect way to quickly improve my Farsi to a degree where I felt comfortable speaking with native speakers and capable of reading and understanding media in this language. The course was well structured and allowed me to practice in a friendly environment while at the same time remaining challenging. The teachers added great value to the classes, which were not limited just to language learning, but included discussions about culture, politics, poetry, religion, and music. One of the reasons why I originally picked this summer school was the opportunity to visit Armenia, and the trips organized during my stay allowed me to discover this beautiful part of the world. I highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to improve their Farsi while experiencing Armenian hospitality.

“With Yerevan’s rich history, the helpful teachers both willing and able to compellingly teach its story, and the weekend excursions through Armenia, you leave the program with a new level of appreciation and knowledge for the Persian language, the history of the region, and the culture of Armenia.”
