Great prof! Collects some homework but will give you a heads up when he plans to collect it, 4/5 exams, a journal in english (which is pass/fail), and a final. Class moves at a very reasonable pace and he is always willing to offer help (there's also the Persian Center if you need extra help). You …more need to keep with the material and review the text. less

Samad is a knowledgable and helpful teacher. Shy but observant, so speak up and make yourself a part of his class and you're bound to succeed. A great language teacher with experience. Do the homework as often as possible, memorize the few necessary rules, but practice is really all it takes. He …more like participation and thoughtful participation. less

More poetry-heavy than I expected. However, Samad's insight is interesting and useful in developing your own critical thinking. Do the readings if you can, it impresses him if you contribute thoughtfully to the class. He's very well-read, so ask questions. Three essays (helps a lot if you attend …more class) and participation make up the grade. less

Wonderful professor. Do the very reasonable amount of work that he assigns and he will notice. He is extremely helpful and considerate of students' needs. Very interesting to talk to outside of class. He is an outstanding language teacher. He knows how to teach language thoroughly, effectively, and …more usefully. less

Lots of reading and 3 papers a total of 18+ pages, for a 3 credit class but Dr. Alavi is very well-read and engaging. He does his best to help students and is a very kind person.
