Funded Summer course for Farsi learners

Funded Summer course for Farsi learners

We at the Peace Sprit Foundation believe that peace can be achieved through raising understanding between different people and nations; and this cannot be achieved unless we promote more communication and exchanges between people and people, instead of waiting for governments to take measures.

So, we are holding a series of short summer courses on Farsi Language to help university students studying the Persian language to visit Iran and engage in real life, participate in workshops and improve their command of Farsi through various programs. Other programs include meeting with prominent poets, writers and other Farsi Language students in Iran, visiting museums, ancient houses, cultural centres, newspaper and news agencies, etc. for a week. Then We will travel to some cities in Iran for 3 days to indulge in Iranian culture and enjoy different dialects of Farsi Language. The students can also have the chance to spend a day experiencing working in a job position selected from among a number of choices.

We invite Farsi Language students from all over Europe to participate in this program which is held on a rolling basis through the summer beginning in August:

  • First group: 1 August
  • Second group: 15 August
  • Third group: 9 September

Benefits

The selected participants will be based in Tehran and besides the main goal of learning Farsi firsthand will enjoy learning Iranian culture more. All accommodation costs, meals and domestic travels inside Iran are covered by Peace Sprit Foundation; however, applicants are asked to pay 15o Euros.
