Yeah! I live there! Dah! I said I wasn't FROM Birmingham! :giggle:

 

Most of the time, if you come across an English person, no matter here in England or in your own home land, Don't be surprise that they make their accent even more stronger when they talk to people from other nationalities!

 

By the way! Due to my experience! If you want to learn English! You don't need to go to college since you are already in England! Just socialize with people and read some grammar books at home.

 

The first bit was so true, as for learning english i think you misinterpreted what i wrote. I have no intention to learn english as i hope i'm at a suitable level already. :harhar_wft[1]: Anyways brother nice to see another Iranian in Birmingham.

 

Looking at ur previous convrstns.. Most f colleges ( at least the ones i know )!! Do have Persian as a foreign language... for both GCSE and A-Level.....

 

Yeah there are a few colleges that teach farsi as an a-level or gcse but this is for the duration of a school year, i have university during that time so there is practically no chance of being able to join. I wish i could thou as it would save me alot of hassle aswell as money.

 

 

Some of the Universities offer it as well... so u could just take it as an optional module if u prefer..which uni do U go 2?

LOL your a northener?!

 

I don't really know about the maximum modules you can take, as im sure our course is completely structured leaving no room for anything else. Few of my peers have asked to do additional science unit for research purposes aswell as self-study but were denied as it was thought it could harm their studies - so likelyhood of being allowed to study farsi as a module is fairly impossible.

I got my Persian A Level and GCSE and I think you should maybe think about getting a personal tutor who will prepare you for the GCSE exam then if you really want continue to AS and A Level then voila!

 

BTW Shamus, where R U from originally? I remember a post you mentioned you're not Iranian. I'm really curious :p

Salaam, i checked with them before i asked the local mosques as they offer the most reputable language classes but for some strange reason they do not teach farsi or dari which is surprising considering the large amount of Afghans present in Birmingham. Btw are you a brummie? If so

 

No! I am not a Brummie! :giggle:

 

Don't be surprise my friend! Having English as international language, has given majority of people (In the UK) this idea that they don't really need to know any other languages!

 

About 2 or three years ago... They use to teach Farsi in Bourneville College! You can check their web site.

 

Good Luck!

 

Its easy to get in touch with Persian people in London, and Nottingham. However, If you are seriously looking a solution to your persian language problems, I will ask you to contact the nearest Iranian Consulate (Embassy / Foreign Mission), From there, You may find the appropriate and useful contacts and informations.

 

Hope this helps.!
