2 weeks 2016 Armenian Language Winter School

The intensive winter course I participated in was a great experience not only of learning but also social and cultural. I highly recommend it.

Our indefatigable (անխոնջ) lovely teacher, Sona, brought to class endless amounts of energy and created a dynamic atmosphere which got all the students involved.

She balanced perfectly between grammar, listening comprehension, conversation and various games and exercises.

During the course we completed an entire overview of Armenian grammar in a very well structured and clear manner.

Alongside grammar, there was also much emphasis on conversation and the systematic building of vocabulary for daily use.

Prior to the course I had no knowledge of modern Armenian (only classical). Yet by the end of this short course I was already able to hold basic conversations and read texts.

This solid foundation enabled me to participate in advanced courses of Armenian.
