Persian is a modern Indo-European language spoken today by over 100 million people—chiefly in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. This is an intermediate-level module that extends your knowledge of the Persian language, introducing you to new and more abstract fields of communication. It provides you with the means and opportunity for you to take your reading, writing, oral and aural skills in Persian to level B1 (threshold) on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages CEFRL. Through language, the module will continue your exposure to Persian cultural expression. You will use a textbook as well as a variety of materials chosen by course tutors.

┬áIf 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.
