Online Western Armenian College

On the eve of our tenth anniversary, the Programme of Armenian Studies is delighted to announce the establishment of the first fully-taught Online Western Armenian College, offering courses from Beginners’ to Advanced levels.

After the success of the meticulously-designed Beginners’ and Elementary courses we launched in March 2021, and in response to high demand for more courses, we decided to broaden our activities in this domain by creating a start-to-finish educational project.

The courses are taught on Zoom, and are designed, organised and taught by Dr Krikor Moskofian, along with an assistant teacher.


Course timetable

All courses will take place once a week and run for ten weeks, and each session will last 1 hour 30 minutes.

Beginners’

Date and time: Tuesdays at 6.30 PM (UK time)
Start date: 5 April 2022
Course fee: £189

During this course, participants will familiarise themselves with the Armenian alphabet using a method devised by the Programme of Armenian Studies. Each week a group of letters will be introduced with relevant exercises.

Over ten weeks participants will learn the alphabet and take their first steps in speaking, and will also become familiar with the different parts of speech as they learn to read.

 

Elementary

Start date: 4 April 2022
Course fee: £189

Participants will revise and develop the knowledge they have acquired in the Beginners’ course, and will learn to express feelings, describe objects and people, and express possession, as well as studying certain grammatical rules.
