About the course
Learning a new language is always an exciting endeavor! In this two-part course, we will dive into the basics of the Persian language. The first part will be comprised of learning the alphabet. We will go over all of the letters and their phonetic sounds and transliterations. We will review by showing how each letter connects to other letters. In the second part of the course, we will learn to connect letters to build simple words and sentences!
Hello, and welcome! My name is Negeen, and I can’t wait to be your instructor! I’m Iranian-American and originally from Montana, but moved to Dubai in high school. I received my BA degree in anthropology from UC Berkeley, then started medical school in Cyprus. I transferred back to the States where I am completing my medical studies as an aspiring psychiatrist. As you can see, I have been privileged to travel a lot, and my journeys have shaped my interests. The English language and English literature have always been passions of mine. Throughout my academic career, I have gained a lot of experience as an English and ESL tutor for students of all ages. I believe students learn most effectively when they realize they can utilize the skills they are taught in their own lives, which usually comes from an enjoyable and creative learning experience. It is my goal to provide that for you!
