This course builds on Advanced Persian A. It will develop various skills such as the capacity to use some idiomatic and conversational forms and ability to use them freely in speech; proficiency in written structures of advanced complexity and the capacity to use such structures clearly and accurately; interpreting messages of an advanced level of complexity occurring in a variety of audio-visual media and individual and group spoken forms. Students should become conversant in some aspects of advanced Persian syntax and morphology, the historical development of Persian language and literature up to the modern period including some examples of literary writing and translation of sophisticated classical and modern poetry and prose.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- comprehend concrete and abstract topics presented in different mediums using knowledge of linguistic and cultural content to an advanced level;
- apply grammar, pronunciation and intonation accurately in a written and spoken medium for different contexts;
- write and translate texts of high difficulty between Persian and English with control of correct morphology, syntactical structures and punctuation in a legible and stylistically correct grammar; and
- comprehend and engage in extended-length conversations using Persian at an advanced level.
