Intensive Summer Armenian in Yerevan

About the Program: 

This page describes the elementary and intermediate programs only. See the Yerevan 8-week program page for details on the advanced Armenian program.


CLI's summer program in Yerevan helps students extend and solidify the communicative and cultural skills they develop during intensive classes on the ASU campus.

The program combines classes, in which students review the material covered in Arizona, with an emphasis on listening and speaking skills. In addition to classroom instruction, the program includes excursions and extra-curricular activities to familiarize students with Yerevan and Armenian culture. Since the program is small, instructors provide a great deal of individual attention and staff are able to tailor activities to students' needs and interests.

Eligibility: 

4-week programs are open only to students who complete one of the 7-week courses below.

Dates: 
Tue, 07/22/2014 - Fri, 08/15/2014
Schedule: 

Classes meet 3 hours a day on weekdays, with cultural activities and excursions in the afternoons and on weekends.

Materials: 

Materials for the Yerevan program are the same as those for the intensive Elementary Armenian and intensive Intermediate Armenian courses at ASU.

Housing and Meals: 

Participants live in a furnished apartment in the center of Yerevan. They prepare their own meals or eat in local restaurants.

A compact city with a population of roughly one million, Yerevan offers a wide variety of educational and cultural opportunities in a friendly and safe environment.
