In this dynamic course, students will gain confidence using Armenian in a variety of authentic language-learning contexts. They will watch films and stand-up comedy; listen to kef music and pop songs; and read short stories (Krikor Zohrab), poetry (Silva Kaputikyan; Bedros Tourian), plays (Hagob Baronian), newspaper articles, and short selections from a variety of novels (Zabel Yesayan; Shahan Shahnour; Raffi). Materials will be tailored to match student ability and interest.

For a final class project, students will interview a member of the Detroit Armenian community in Armenian and produce a short podcast episode to showcase their speaking, listening, and writing skills.

Course Requirements:

Grading will be based on class participation, homework, a midterm exam, and a final project.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for students who have already completed two years of Armenian at U-M or have some background in Armenian already.
