About Language Program
NYPC has four semesters throughout the year for all kinds of classes [Early January to mid March – Early April to mid June – Early July to mid September – Early October to mid December]. Our tuitions are very reasonable and we take pride in the fact that we pay our teachers well. By taking classes from us, not only you support a local small business but also help to create jobs for New Yorkers.
Farsi/Persian or Dari Classes
All of our Farsi/Persian classes are one on one and go based on individual’s needs, goals and speed. Each semester is 15 classes, each session for 90 minutes. The tuition is $1,130 (+$99.44 tax) for entire semester that is due prior to the first class. You may divide the tuition in two; due on first and 7th class in the semester. Check is preferred method of payment. You may cancel up to three classes per semester in which a prior notification is required.
Despite other educational institutes’ Farsi/Persian classes, it doesn’t take a whole semester for us to teach alphabets and we recognize each students pace. From novice to high intermediate takes a year (four semesters) in which students are taught by our native and licensed instructor. If requested, students will receive a certification of competence at the end. Please register online. Please choose your preferred date and time on our website.
You finished our four semesters or you are evaluated as intermediate in Farsi/Persian. But you need practicing the language to improve and don’t forget. Our conversation classes are a two-hour long, group classes in which 3 to 5 students would meet once a week to converse and be corrected by an observing instructor.
NYPC is founded and run by two long-time Iranian journalists/writers. They bring over 30 years of experience into our writing classes. Master your grammar and learn how to write essays, official letters/emails and articles in Farsi. This class is best for businessmen/women, lawyers, journalists/writers, manufacturer, entrepreneurs and others who are going to do businesses with Iran and would need to draft a professional format of writing.
