The emphasis in this course is on giving the students a reasonable grounding in the basics of Persian writing, phonology and grammar, and introduce them to a range of non-technical vocabulary by way of reading simple texts. The syllabus includes also a description of different transliteration systems, learning tools, and training on the use of Persian Dictionaries, data-base and Encyclopaedias.
At the end of the course the student must have acquired all the basic alphabetical, phonetic and morphological structures for reading, transliterating and understanding an elementary text in Persian and to be able to translate very simple sentences from Italian to Persian. Through the language tutorials, at the end of the course he/she must be able to support a simple conversation expressing the 'taarof', describing him/herself, his/her family, and providing basic information on his/her studies.
There are no entry qualifications for this course.
This course is intended for those students who wish to learn the basics of the Persian grammar and acquire enough vocabulary to be able, with the aid of a dictionary, to read very basic modern texts and conduct basic natural everyday conversation. Emphasis is put on writing and reading language skills.
