Continuation of P100/550

This course will continue the study of modern Persian begun Elementary Persian I.  We will
study  the compound verb and verbal tenses beyond the simple past and present.  We will learn
how to put together compound and complex sentences and add another three hundred or so to
our active vocabulary.  Written and oral drills, graded readings and short written compositions,
translation exercises and simple conversations will all play their role in gaining a thorough
command of these elements of the language.
