Dr. Hripsime Haroutunian will be teaching an Elementary Modern Armenian Class at the University of Chicago for graduate students and undergraduates once again this year. The classes are scheduled TU/TH 12:00-1:20 and W 12:30-1:20 (lab/practice) in Cobb 206.
The course utilizes advanced computer technology enabling the students to master a core vocabulary, the unique alphabet and basic grammatical structures in a fun setting, to achieve a reasonable level of proficiency in Armenian. A language competency exam is offered at the end of spring quarter for those taking this course as college language requirement. A considerable amount of historical-political and social-cultural issues about Armenia and Armenians are built into the course for students who have intention to conduct research in Armenian Studies or to pursue work in the Republic of Armenia.
