These basic classes are free and open to anyone at the university.  At the moment, we offer the following courses:

·        Letter writing: This course is suitable for anyone who wishes to write letters or emails.  Professionals and academics need to use proper grammar and language in order to achieve their objectives.  Therefore, it is more  important for them  to have good writing skills. As writing business or personal letters can sometimes be difficult  and challenging, we try to familiarize you with  the basics of letter writing in our classes.


·        Free discussion:  At  the Language Center, we hope to create a friendly  environment so that  students can participate in weekly free discussion classes. Exempt students as well as students in levels A and  B can take part in these classes.


·        MSRT classes:  MSRT is a General English Language Test for entrance examinations of universities for Master's and Ph.D. Programs in Iran.  Ph. D. students have the chance to attend MSRT classes to get the English certificate before their Comprehensive  Exam.


·        IELTS preparation courses: Students can participate in IELTS speaking and writing courses. In these classes, students have  the opportunity to improve the language skills needed to pass speaking and writing modules of  the IELTS exam, become  familiar with exam strategies, and gain confidence  to take exams.
