[MDES W1314] Elementary Modern Eastern Armenian

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Armen is ok...not excellent but not terrible either. His lack of preparation for the class was sometimes frustrating, but what more does one expect from a grad student instructor in a language class with at most four people in it. There was very little practice in class, but he says he plans on talking much more in Armenian in the second semester...he also focuses a lot more on grammar in class, and if you can sit through 2 hours of explanation of case uses you'll be ok. Distractions help the time go by, however...

Workload:

one midterm, one final, some exercises from the book that he never collects, but if you want to learn the vocabulary you'll have to do it entirely on your own
