The Alireza Ahmadian Lectures in Iranian and Persianate Studies Present: "Persian, Pahlavi, and Teaching Farsi"
Teaching historical content that is relevant, engaging, and accessible for students of Language is something that social studies scholars have scarcely investigated. The present article reveals how knowledge of Middle Persian illuminates many complex aspects inherent in both the grammar and orthography of Modern Persian/Fārsī and particularly in teaching them as a second language.

This presentation will maintain that a cogent knowledge of Middle Persian is in fact crucial in understanding many aspects of Modern Persian grammar, both basic and higher level; and that it enable scholars, teachers and educators obtain a clarity on how to best teach the growing and diverse population of students of Persian Language in schools and universities across North America.

Presented by Rastin Mehri (SFU and UBC).
