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 polysyllabic nouns.
Here are some examples:
Day: "Or" becomes "Orer"; black: “Sev” becomes “Sever”
Dish: "Aman" becomes "Aman-ner"; Red: “Karmir” becomes “Karmirner”
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. For example:
Hima (now), irakan (really), and shutov (soon) are all Armenian adverbs.
3- Adjectives Lesson
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).
4- Numbers Lesson
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.
5- Articles Lesson
Unlike 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:
Girk (book) – girke (the book)
Katu (cat) – katun (the cat)
While we have (a / an / some) in English as indefinite articles, in Armenian there is no indefinite article at all.
Yes unem girk (I have a book )
6- Verbs Lessons
- Present Tense
In Armenian, verbs don’t take the endings to form the present tense but different particles are added to the verb:
