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

I participated in the two-month-long ASPIRANTUM Persian Language Summer School through a Department of Education FLAS grant. The program allowed me further to develop my Persian language skills at an intermediate-to-advanced level. I hoped to expand my knowledge of Persian in order to apply it in the workplace and to converse with Persian friends. I was not disappointed! Mr. Ruben and Ms. Ani are excellent instructors who worked to meet my individual needs while giving us a solid knowledge base and vocabulary on a wide range of subjects. In addition, the program was structured to expose us to the culture of Yerevan and included a number of weekend trips to beautiful and interesting locations. The program truly feels like a community, and I am overjoyed to have met so many amazing people through it! ASPIRANTUM really is the best way to study Persian as a U.S. citizen.
