16 weeks 2024 Persian Language Semester Program

Aspirantum was a great experience for me. I learned a lot, both about the Persian language and culture and about Armenia. We had lessons 4 hours a day covering reading, writing, listening, and speaking, and the results by the end of the 16 weeks were obvious. Indeed, we met various Iranians in Yerevan and were able to converse with them with a degree of confidence that I was not expecting. The classes were engaging and allowed for discussion and participation. On the weekends, trips were organized around the country to fascinating places, which were guided brilliantly by the professors, allowing further insight into the country. Extra Armenian lessons were also organized, allowing us to immerse even further in the culture of Yerevan. I would recommend it.
