3 weeks 2014 Armenian studies summer school

The Armenian Studies Summer School was an experience I won't ever forget. I arrived in Armenia not really knowing anyone and not sure what to expect, but the Summer school staff, professors, and students made Armenia an experience I'll never forget.

Not only did my Armenian improve, thanks to an environment conducive to using and learning Armenian daily, but my knowledge of Armenian history and culture expanded greatly. Unlike other summer programs that focus in Armenian language, Armenian Studies Summer School worked to teach us students about Armenian culture and history while actively using and improving our knowledge of the Armenian language. It was a time to remember, filled with knowledge and experiences that I will cherish for years to come.
