Elementary Western Armenian

The objective of this course is to provide students with all the basic skills required in Western Armenian at an elementary level. At the end of this course, students should be able to express simple ideas, wishes, and thoughts on a variety of topics. They should be able to engage in simple conversations with native speakers, write simple sentences and read basic texts.

Intermediate Western Armenian

This course is designed to build on what students will have learned in Elementary Western Armenian. It covers many aspects of the grammar to take students to a reasonable level of competence in reading, writing and speaking. At the end of this course, students should be able to engage in conversation with native speakers on most topics relating to daily life, write sentences of reasonable complexity on the same themes, and read the kinds of texts available in newspapers etc.

Advanced Western Armenian

This course is designed to consolidate the language acquired through the elementary and intermediate courses. It also takes students to the next, more challenging level of language knowledge. At the end of this course students should have acquired a high level of sophistication in reading, writing and speaking. Students should be able to communicate on a variety of topics of social and cultural interest.
