The course will be held for 2 levels (in 2 different groups); for those who don’t know (or nearly don’t know) Armenian and for those who know it partially (elementary level).

The teaching language of the course is English and the participants should at least have basic English knowledge.

The aim of the course is:

for the 1st group –  to enable the learners to obtain basic knowledge and skills to communicate in Armenian,

for the 2nd group – to enable the learners to improve both their ability to communicate and their linguistic competence in Armenian.

During the course a balance of receptive (reading, listening) and productive (speaking, writing) skills are developed through communicative classes and self‐study. The course will include people’s every-day-life activities and main situations (introduction, transportation, work, etc.), will give an insight into the country’s culture and Armenians’ every-day-life as well.

Classes are held through practice methods of teaching (set phrases, drilling and communicative methods) and are free from grammar based teaching methods.
