The Intensive Functional Persian Language Course is developed to build fundamental language skills required for an Advanced Targeted Proficiency Level. This course provides a systematic learning program that enables learners to communicate effectively using the language at a high level and in a range of different functions such as everyday activities and present/future professional work. The course covers four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing and translation.
Apart from covering the key grammatical points, formal and informal vocabulary and fixed key phrases, the course also encompasses sociolinguistic and sociocultural aspects of the Persian Language and provides an introduction to press and media. The course is based on a platform of a communicative language and enables correct and appropriate interaction in a given context, from everyday practical and social language to formal specific situations.

Single subject FAQs
Single subjects are the individual components that make up a degree. With Open Universities Australia, you’re able to study many of them as stand-alone subjects, including postgraduate single subjects, without having to commit to a degree.
Each of your subjects will be held over the course of a study term, and they’ll usually require 10 to 12 hours of study each week. Subjects are identified by a title and a code, for example, Developmental Psychology, PSY20007.
