Persian language teachers can understand the development of Persian learner language in their own classrooms using basic techniques from second-language acquisition research. The following six units feature video-clips of Persian learner language produced by two second-year learners in unrehearsed communication activities. Each unit shows you how to analyze Persian learner language from a different perspective, and consider ways you can support its development:
