This is a continuation of the first semester of Introductory Persian I. We will work to develop greater fluency in pronunciation, reading and writing, as we continue our study of basic sentence structure.  We will aim for a working vocabulary of 700 words and begin to study compound verbs and other idiomatic expressions.  In addition, we will also make use of internet resources to improve our knowledge of Modern Persian.
