PERSIAN 101 is for the students interested in learning Persian with no previous knowledge of this language. This is an introductory course covering the modern written language of Iran and the standard spoken Persian, so called Tehrani dialect. The course begins with teaching of the phonetics of Persian and the Perso-Arabic scripts and moves towards the teaching of basic everyday conversations in Persian. By the end of the academic term, students will have covered basic grammatical constructions and acquired an essential working vocabulary allowing them to communicate within a limited range of situations in which they find themselves. The students will also be able to write a one-paragraph-length composition about their daily activities.
