Grammar Tips:

In Armenian there are 4 ways of asking a question to get a yes or no answer, and they are the following:

-Verb + pronoun: Unlike English, the auxiliaries do and does are not used. Ունի± նա ազատ ժամանակ: (Does she have free time?)

-Pronoun + verb: Only the intonation makes the sentence interrogative: Նա ունի± ազատ ժամանակ:  (Does she have free time?)

-Verb +...+ pronoun. The pronoun goes last. Ունի± ազատ ժամանակ նա: (Does she have free time?)

-Finally you can also make a question by adding a tag question to the end of a statement. 

Նա ունի ազատ ժամանակ, այնպես չէ? (She has free time, doesn’t she)


Here are some examples:
