About the author

Katya Monajemi (BA in the Persian language, BA in Cultural Anthropology with focus on Iran) has been actively teaching Persian for over 2 years and by now has helped 20+ students (of all ages and backgrounds) learn Persian for various purposes.

Having mastered her own Persian up to the level of a native speaker, she now helps others not only learn basic Persian, but also focus on pronunciation and spoken Persian at an advanced level.

People learn other languages to communicate, and that is Katya`s goal – to prepare her students to communicate to Iranians in real life.


Although it`s easier to find someone who speaks English in Tehran and touristy cities like Shiraz or Isfahan, if you step a bit off the beaten track, it might be harder to communicate with people.


If you are planning to move to Iran just for a few months or a couple of years, this course is a good start for preparing yourself and your family for this move.
