Persian as a foreign language

Thursday, April 13, 2017

Persian is spoken in one of the least understood but strategically most important regions of the world (Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and parts of Central Asia) and enjoys an immensely rich literary, cultural and political history. It's offered at elementary, intermediate and advanced level (a total of six semesters) at KU. Students get a number of optional opportunities to get exposure to the target language culture through Persian Culture Festival (https://mes.ku.edu/pcf) and Persian Club (https://rockchalkcentral.ku.edu/organization/persianclub).
