I collect resources that are helpful for learners and lovers of Modern Western Armenian. If you have any links to add, please get in touch with me!
Until the textbook I am developing is ready to be released as an open educational resource, I recommend the following textbooks:
For adults who want to listen to Armenian content to strengthen their Armenian, I recommend the following:
Beirut’s Վանայ Ձայն radio network has programs about movies, literature, politics, recent news, and music
SBS Australia‘s weekly updates cover recent news, health, economics, and history
Ասպանդակ is an interview podcast about the daily life of Armenians around the world
Անուն քաղաք ճաշ is an interview podcast about life in Istanbul
Յուշամատեան is a well-researched treasure trove for Armenian learners who care about traditional food, games, music, dance, and popular medicine.
