This course is a continuation of Persian I,
or its equivalent, and is designed for those who are already familiar with the Persian alphabet and sound system, and who have basic reading skills. Grammatical structures are introduced in a communicative way, and most of the grammar and verb tense structures needed for everyday conversation are addressed, including continuous emphatic structures, negation, prepositional phrases, the future tense, and imperatives. Topics covered include expressing likes and dislikes; giving directions; and discussing travel, months and days of the week, clothing and shopping, food and eating out, and health and doctor visits. The course focuses on all four core language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Classes are conducted in Persian to the extent possible.
Students are strongly encouraged to register by Wednesday, September 12, 2018 to ensure a seat in the class. Please contact the Department of Foreign Languages at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, or call 212-998-7150 to register.
