Comment: She is one of the best professors that I have ever seen. She chooses very intresting poems and stories for her class that make her class enjoyable.

Comment: The thing about Dr. Pirnazar is that she seems like a nice person but is a god awful professor. She will all of a sudden announce at the end of the class that you have a giant test the next day on the story you read that morning. She will put over 100 words on a vocab/spelling test and assign it for two days from then. She constantly told me that I was not good at Farsi (which should be obvious since I came from the 1 series) and then would give me an A in the class. The only good thing about her is she grades EXTREMELY easy but even the native speakers agree that you learn absolutely NOTHING. This isn't anger this is simply the plain truth. Her tests are pretty fair but difficult for the non native speakers if you do not study alot. Take it if you want a grade booster that you don't have to consistently study for but be prepared to have random all nighters throughout the semester anytime she gets the whim to test you.

Comment: She is trying to destroy Persian culture , she knows nothing about Persian at all. she uses this class to depress everyone and you have no right to be against her opinion. If you like yourself please don't take her, just an advice. I have a lot to say about her. The way she covers all this up is by giving you a good grade. Do not read anything she gives you!

Comment: Left the class knowing less. Class is disorganized, there's no grammar - it's mostly culture. I wish there was an actual textbook to study from, not just a reader
