Intermediate Persian: A Grammar and Workbook comprises an accessible grammar and related exercises in a single volume. Each of the fourteen units deals with a particular grammatical point and provides associated exercises to help learners reinforce and consolidate their knowledge.There are additionally four appendices covering colloquial, polite, literary and journalistic styles.
Intermediate Persian reviews many of the principle elements presented in its sister volume, Basic Persian, and introduces more advanced features and structures of the language. The two books form a compendium of the essentials of Persian grammar.
User-friendly and engaging, Intermediate Persian is suitable for both class use and independent study, making it an ideal grammar reference and practice resource for students and learners with some knowledge of the language.

"As with English, there’s a lot more to Persian than meets the eye, or ear. It needs an all-round practitioner to teach the subtleties of this apparently easy but eloquently idiomatic and multidimensional tongue. Saeed Yousef fits the bill: an experienced teacher, a connoisseur of his own and several other languages, and a poet. His book is an essential vade mecum for all who have decided to make Persian their own." John Perry, Professor of Persian (Emeritus), The University of Chicago, USA
"Intermediate Persian: A Grammar and Workbook is an excellent complement to the core texbook in the classroom. Its structure is methodical, the units are easy to navigate, and the explanations are refreshingly low on jargon. The appendices (in particular the appendix that deals with the language of politeness, and the one on the Tehrani colloquial) are a great addition to an already comprehensive grammar." - Dominic Parviz Brookshaw, Stanford University, USA
"Yousef and Torabi represent the Iranian Studies of Chicago University and for year have dealt with the didactics of Persian. The reference book Intermediate Persian is comprised of the long-standing expert knowledge of both Linguists. It belongs to a specialised series of Routledge’s Grammar Workbooks. The work is divided into fourteen topical parts and as well is comprised of four appendices plus an exercise key and a Persian-English Glossary... The reference book contributes not only to the consolidation of grammatical knowledge of Persian learners, but also serves the enhancement of active vocabulary. The book closes with an English index of facilitated grammatical expressions and this aids a targeted search when using the reference book." Orientalistische Literaturzeitung, de Gruyter, 2017, Band 112.
