10 weeks (or 4-9 weeks) 2024 Persian Language Summer School

My summer at ASPIRANTUM was an outstanding educational experience. 

My knowledge of Persian grew daily as I was taught by excellent professors passionate about their jobs. 

Through these 7 weeks, we analyze various topics in Persian, from the economy and cultures of Iran to its poetry and constitution. ASPIRANTUM also organized different trips for my group and me to travel to Armenia. Hence, coupled with intensive learning, I could also travel around Armenia and bond with the warmest people. Yerevan is a small and friendly capital too. Overall, it was a unique setting to learn Persian, and the classes were tailor-made to our interests and capacities, with the possibilities of after classes too. 

I would recommend this experience to anyone that is interested in taking on such an adventure and who is not only looking for a language course but a way to make new friends and encounters!
