Course Description

This advanced Persian language proficiency course is designed for students who have completed Second-Year Persian II or its equivalent as well as students who have had exposure to Persian at this level and who pass a placement examination for PRS 312L. The material for this course will consist of prose and poetry, both classical and modern. The course aims to expand active vocabulary to approximately 1200 words 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 supplemented 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. Daily homework assignments are corrected and discussed with students on a regular basis.
