3 weeks 2018 Armenian studies summer school

This was a 360-degree experience. I really appreciated the cultural trips around Armenia and the cohesion with the Persian Summer School students, that made the whole stay in Yerevan a more comprehensive and nice human experience.

I think that the lessons were very successfull: I arrived with no knowledge of modern Armenian and at the end of only three weeks I felt able to have some basic conversations and to read fluently a text.

The teacher was very patient and totally able to mediate the different levels of the students. I highly suggest to participate in one of these Summer Schools to have a totally new view of what learning a language can be.

“The summer school staff made Armenia an experience I'll never forget. I am very pleased with this experience and, if I have the opportunity, I'll return again to Yerevan to attend another language summer school with ASPIRANTUM.”

“Armenian studies summer school was the experience which made my dream about visiting Armenia and speaking Armenian come true. I already know I will return for sure as I´ve found new inspirations and ideas for my research and now I have even bigger motivation to develop my language skills – maybe in the Winter School this time.”
