A disciplined approach to learning Persian

Proficiency-based Language Instruction
The Persian instructional materials developed by Dr. Marashi are Proficiency-based, covering the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and also introduce the learner to Persian culture. Through a series of exercises with unified themes in authentic contexts, students gain vast knowledge and vocabulary necessary for everyday communication. These proficiency-based materials set a practical standard for Persian language acquisition.
