Learning Armenian can help you communicate with other people who speak Armenian. The following courses will provide you with some help based on the lessons you choose. Here is a list of what we offer:
1- Plural Lesson
While in English, the plural is formed by
adding (s) to the singular. In Armenian, to form the plural of nouns and adjectives we add (-er, ner; Arm: եր, ներ): The suffix "-er" is added to the end of
monosyllabic nouns. The suffix "-ner" is added to the end of
Here are some examples:
Day: "Or" becomes "Orer"; black: “Sev”
Dish: "Aman" becomes "Aman-ner"; Red: “Karmir”
2- Adverbs Lesson
While in English adverbs are usually formed
by adding (-ly) to adjectives. In Armenian many adverbs are formed
from adjectives, simply by adding the suffix -oren to the singular form of adjectives. Examples:
Dandakh (slow) becomes dandakhoren (slowly)
Zarmanali (amazing) becomes zarmanalioren (amazingly)
However that’s not always the case. Some words are adverbs by nature.
Hima (now), irakan (really), and shutov
(soon) are all Armenian adverbs.
Like in English, in Armenian an adjective
doesn’t change when the noun changes, For example:
a) Masculine to feminine example:
Sa im pokrik tkhan e (this is my little son)
becomes: Sa im pokrik akhchikn e (this is my little daughter)
b) Singular to plural example:
Sa im spitak katun e (this is my white cat)
becomes: Srank im spitak katunern en (these are my white cats).
In Armenian numbers from 1 to 10 are
unique and therefore need to be memorized individually. Numbers from 11-19 are
formed by using the following pattern: for example 12 can be formed by using 10
+ while connecting them: 10- tas, 2 – erku; 12- tas-n-erku; 20-qsan, 5-hing; 25=qsanhing.
English, which has only one definite article “the", Armenian has 2 definite articles (“-e” and “-n”), which are added to the end of the word.
The definite article “-e” is added to the words that are ended in consonant
letters, :-n” is added to the word ended in vowels:
– girke (the book)
Katu (cat) –
katun (the cat)
have (a / an / some) in English as indefinite articles, in Armenian there is no
indefinite article at all.
girk (I have a book )
In Armenian, verbs don’t take the
endings to form the present tense but different particles are added to the
Yes kardum em (I read)
Du kardum es (you read)
Na kardum e (he, she, it reads)
Menk kardum enk (we read)
Duk kardum ek (you read)
Nrank kardum en (theyI read)
verb itself remains the same in all persons and singular and plural forms.
Armenian the simple past tense (imperfect) is formed like the present tense,
but in this case we add other particles:
Yes kardum ei (I read)
Du kardum eir (you read)
Na kardum er (he, she, it read)
Menk kardum eink (we read)
Duk kardum eik (you read)
Nrank kardum ein (theyI read)
the future in Armenian
we add “–alu” ending to the verb and
preserve the preserve the particles from Present Tense
Yes kardalu em (I shall read)
Du kardalu es (you will read)
Na kardalu e (he, she, it will read)
Menk kardalu enk (we shall read)
Duk kardalu ek (you will read)
Nrank kardalu en (theyI will read)
a Question Lesson
English in Armenian in interrogative sentences the structure remains the same
as in affirmative sentences. The same sentence is expressed just in
Dug grum es
(You are writing).
Dug gru՞m es (Are you writing)
mark “՞” is placed above the last
vowel of the verb.
Armenian, negation can be made simply by placing "-ch"
before the verb particle and the particle is placed before the verb.
sirum em (I love)
chem sirum (I don’t love)
third person singular negation transforms the particle “-e” to “-chi”
Na sirum e (He loves)
Na chi sirum (He doesn’t love)
Armenian mostly the words cannot change into feminine; instead a whole
new word should be used, example:
in some cases to form a feminine word from the masculine, you simply add (-uhi) to the word.
(student masc.) – usanokhuhi
10- Pronouns Lesson
English personal pronouns are (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they), and (me,
you, him, her, it, us, you, them), In Armenian, the personal pronouns are:
Yes… (I), Du… (you), Na… (he, she, it - the same word)
Menk… (we), Duk… (you), Nrank… (they)
Yes sovorum em (I learn), Du sovorum es (you learn), na sovorum e (he, she, it learns), menk sovorum enk (we learn), Duk sovorum ek (you learn [polite] and you
learn [plural, friendly]), nrank sovorum en (they learn).
object pronouns are words that replace the indirect object, which is usually a
Ince (me), kez (you), nran (him, her, you (formal), mez (us), dzes (you), nranc (them):
Tur inc girke (give me the book). Yes sirum em kez (I love you).
Im (mine- the same for all genders), ko (yours), nra (his, hers), mer (ours), dzer (yours, plur), nranc (theirs).
