This course introduces students to a series of themes in Persian alongside Persian grammar, vocabulary and the four language skills at the intermediate low level. Emphasis is placed on actively using the language for interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational modes of communication. The four language skills (i.e., listening, speaking, reading, and writing) as well as pronunciation and culture are integrated into the curriculum. In this course, we will also use Persian stories and mythological anecdotes as a means of understanding the cultural dimension of the Persian language and its culture.
