Western Armenian is the dialect most often encountered among Armenians outside of Armenia. It is spoken by the majority of Armenians living throughout the Middle East, North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia, collectively called the Armenian Diaspora.

This Compact course provides an introduction to the Western Armenian language with ten thirty-minute lessons of spoken language practice. With this product you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary, then progressing to speaking and understanding at a functional level. Every lesson contains an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced. Emphasis on pronunciation and comprehension. At the completion of this course, you’ll have a basic vocabulary and speak with a near-native accent. This course provides you with a solid foundation upon which to expand your language skills.

      Comments about Armenian (West) Phase 1, Units 1-10:

      I took this course as an introduction to Western Armenian. My work places me in contact with primarily Armenian communities. Since taking the course, I am amazed at how much I am able to pick up and communicate. My Armenian friends were shocked by my lack of accent.I highly recommend this course.

      My only complaint is that I wish there were more Armenian courses offered!

          Comments about Armenian (Western), Compact:

          I speak English only, I know a handfull Spanish words. I expected getting started on a language would be harder, I'm thoroughly impressed with this method!
          Western Armenian is spoken by the Armianian diaspora outside of Armenia, we have a large population here in southern California. Using these 10 lessons I was able to get a good start learning the language. I can greet/farewell, express thanks or distaste, ask for a variety of basic everyday items, refer to now/later or other references of time, and ask any basic who/what/when/where/why type of question.

          I'm most impressed with my own ability to pronunciate things properly using this method, I am complemented on this most of all. I hope they are planning to make more Western Armenian lessons! It was very easy to use in the car or using my headphones during other downtime, it helps being able to speak it aloud when prompted but in public places I found it worked just as well if I didn't speak aloud. Listen to each lesson until your comfortable with it before you move on, and go back to the second lesson and listen all the way through again once you've done 5 or 6. I plan to use Pimsleur to learn my next language, again very impressed!
