Learning Armenian Headstart
is designed for absolute beginners and addressed to the English speaking people. Headstart has a clearly defined and limited grammatical syllabus. New language is presented in measured amounts and in logical order. Once learners know roughly 1,000 words, phrases and the basic structure of a new language, I offer learners the next part 'One hundred con¬versational exercises for foreigners', which is also intended for English speaking people who want to learn spoken Eastern Armenian; it forms the second part of this book. We hope that these books will contribute to a better understanding and speaking of Armenian.

Learning Armenian Headstart consists of four units. In the first unit we try to teach the Arme¬nian alphabet and the most useful vocabulary. Corresponding examples are intended to understand the main rules of Armenian grammar, especially word formation and affixing. The learning of Ar¬menian sound system and alphabet learning are tightly connected with elementary grammar material and vocabulary, which are given on the left side of each lesson.

After acquisition of a basic knowledge of the Armenian alphabet and understanding of the structure of Armenian complex words and word building nuances, we start to learn easy texts, of which there are ten in this book. The second unit consists of ten texts. After acquisition of writing and reading skills, the learners can read and translate those texts, and with the help of suggested questions, they can explain the texts. The texts include basic language structures and conversational formulas. Each lesson has its grammar summary and text vocabulary. The third unit presents ques¬tionnaires and possible answers, which can help in everyday living and communication process. There is also "Vocabulary", which presents the thematic active vocabulary.

The fourth unit is a grammar guidebook, from which the students can benefit in the future too. The grammar section presents the grammar points in tables and is also useful. We have also added a Writing Book to learn Armenian handwriting.

The II part of the manual is 'One hundred conversational exercises for foreigners'.

The III part of the manual includes educational texts about the Armenian history and old, new cities. Understanding of these texts will deepen the knowledge of the Armenian language.
