I spent my whole life in Iran. I have my Bachelor's of Arts in Persian Language and Literature and my Master's of Art in Applied Linguistics (Teaching Persian to non-Persian students)from Iran. I have taught Farsi for more than ten years while I worked as a researcher on Iranian languages and dialects. So,Farsi is NOT just my NATIVE LANGUAGE. It is my Field of education and my interest. Being a native speaker does not make somebody proficient in their language; and, it is not enough for teaching a language. It is necessary to have linguistic knowledge about syntax, semantics, morphology, phonology and pragmatics for teaching a language. In all languages there are some exceptions and many rules that being aware of them will help student to progress in target language fast. I have linguistic knowledge of Farsi's structure and about how this language actually works. I explain all linguistic rules as its needed to give my students a perfect picture of what they are learning. My teaching plan is based on a linguistic approach and communicative method.
