This is an advanced Persian language course. It is designed for students who have completed at least four terms of Persian or its equivalent as well as students who have had exposure to Persian at this level. The course assumes an intermediate-mid proficiency or higher in speaking and reading. The material for this course will consist of texts under the categories of geography, history, legal and judicial matters, and media and technology. The course aims to expand active vocabulary by the end of the semester. Grammatical work focuses on complex grammatical constructions and demands increased accuracy in understanding and producing complex structures in paragraph-length discourse. Students should expect three hours of class preparation for each class hour. Although the texts will be presented with a glossary and explanations of culture-specific aspects of the text and idiomatic expressions, dictionary use is required. The reading material will also be made available in audio format. Persian is the sole language of communication in the classroom.
