The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Armenian (Western)
Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning Armenian (Western) will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The best part is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you’ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn’t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

What You’ll Learn
In these 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

Notes are provided to give you further insight into the Armenian language and culture. A Notes booklet is also included in PDF format.

The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his “secrets”:

The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

Core Vocabulary
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

Organic Learning
You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

Active Participation
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

The Armenian (Western) Language
Armenian (Western) 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.

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

While there are only 10 lessons in "Phase I" of the Western Armenian language series, the method of teaching with Pimsleur is awe-inspiring. I have been through the initial 10 lessons at least three times, and it stays with you. I can't wait until Phase II comes out!

Service and delivery comments:

Phase II and Phase III need to be completed soon! (Please! - There is only a completed Phase I on the market at present!) Phase I just gets your appetite whetted for more! I would buy Phase II and any future additions in a heartbeat!

    Eastern Armenian 1 was an absolutely great product, I learned very quickly and have retained just about everything. I really want Eastern Armenian 2 to be released ASAP so I can continue my learning.

    Thanks,

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

      My friend told me what Pimsleur was and that they have lessons for Armenian. It is extremely easy to use and I love having it. First of all, it wasn't expensive at all. Second of all, I bought the MP3 version and added it to my iPod, so now I can listen to it whenever I want - when I go on a walk, when I'm at the gym, when I'm traveling. They also offer both Eastern and Western which is nice. I have nothing bad to say about it. I guess a con could be that there is no reading or writing component, but I was not expecting that and I practice my reading and writing in other ways. I would definitely recommend this product to people who are starting out and only have a basic knowledge of the Armenian language.

        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!
