Armenian Language Competencies for Peace Corps Volunteers in Armenia.
Vartanian, Vartan; Vartanian, Margaret
The instructional materials for Armenian are designed for the language training of Peace Corps volunteers in Armenia. They use a competency-based approach focusing on content, cultural context, and communication purpose simultaneously. Some are closely tied to work tasks, others to daily communication needs. A brief introductory section gives an overview of the structure, form classes, and alphabet of the eastern dialect. A series of 38 topically grouped lessons follows. Within each topic area, several competencies are specified; for each competency, a brief situational dialogue in Armenian, vocabulary list, grammar and vocabulary notes, and in some cases, pronunciation notes and/or a proverb are included. English translations of the dialogues and an Armenia-to-English glossary are appended. (MSE)
