Persian is a modern Indo-European language spoken today by over 100 million people—chiefly in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. This is an advanced-level module that extends your knowledge of the Persian language, honing your ability to communicate orally and textually on a full complement of subjects and registers.

It provides you with the means and opportunity for you to take your reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills in Persian to level B2 or C1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). Through language, the module will deepen your exposure to Persian cultural expression.


Students on this module will be using a textbook as well as a variety of materials chosen by course tutors. Through both written texts and audio-visual material, you will be able to work on all language-related skills, including reading, listening, speaking, writing and cultural knowledge.

If you have prior knowledge of Persian acquired outside of your degree programme or have not completed the prerequisite modules, your level will be assessed by the module convenor in order to establish whether this module is suitable for you—admission in such cases is not guaranteed.
