Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
"The Routledge Intermediate Persian Course: Farsi Shirin Ast, Book Two" is the first intermediate level Persian textbook written specifically for English-speaking university students that makes use of up-to-date pedagogical techniques, and stresses the importance of communicative competence.
The diversity of the texts in this textbook helps to familiarize students with a range of literary genres, and provides them with the necessary building blocks to continue reading on their own.
As with Book One (PB ISBN 978-0-415-56101-3), all the texts in this volume are available online in the form of audio files. These texts are recorded by native speakers and available for instructors and students to download freely.
