Native Armenian speaker offering spoken and written Western Armenian lessons in London

Methodology

Even though the description says 'Western Armenian' (mainly spoken in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, USA and Europe) because it will be the main axis, I always show the differences and similarities with Eastern Armenian (mostly spoken in the Republic of Armenia, Iran and ex-USSR countries).

My classes are always flexible to the student's needs, level and rhythm, and I like to build the class with the learner themselves. However, I do have high standards of teaching. For example, if a student keeps making mistakes on a particular topic, I will make sure that they do not do it anymore by giving them the tools to remember what was wrong. My teaching ethics: be comprehensive and rigorous at the same time. Without being comprehensive, I believe a teacher cannot successfully transfer his knowledge to the learner, and puts them in an unproductive environment.

In terms of method, I teach speaking and writing altogether from the very beginning since the learner needs a written summary of what they learn, while banishing latin transliteration, which is a counterproductive practice - even though phonetics will be shown to rightly learn the pronunciation. However, the main goal is to learn how to effectively be able to communicate. I also like teaching through songs, plays, poems, etc., which awaken the learner's automatic reflexes and allow them to productively learn with various tools in various settings and various vocabularies, while discovering the rich heritage of Armenian arts and culture.

Experience

I was born bilingual in Paris from a Syrian-Armenian mother who is a professional Armenian teacher, and an Iranian-Armenian father. The diversity of their dialects have made them come to a cleaner Armenian, getting rid of most foreign words, and yet keeping their respective accents and variant they speak, making our household a place for discussion around the diversity of the Armenian language and culture, the differences and similarities between the various dialects, and what is grammatically correct and what isn't.

All of this very soon gave me an ease to learn languages. I was always one of the best of my Armenian class in grammar, spelling, and reading, and often helped my classmates if they had any difficulties.

I received a 19/20 (highest mark) at the French Baccalaureate in Armenian as a first language. After having received my French Baccalaureate with honours ('bien' - 'good'), I decided to come study Marketing and Management at Queen Mary University of London. This is my third and final year. I sometimes get the chance to substitute my mother or my sister when they are unavailable and I am back in Paris. I also often informally teach my friends some vocabulary and conjugation.

I already have experience teaching not only Armenian but also other languages to various sizes of classes and levels: from individual classes to groups, from beginner level to intermediate and advanced.
