Armenian Language Program
During the past decade, hundreds of children have been adopted from Armenia, some of which to non-Armenian parents and many who do not live in close proximity to an Armenian school or Armenian Church. Given the importance of the Armenian language to these children’s ethnic identity, the Armenian Language Program (ALP) was developed in July 2015 to provide elementary and intermediate Armenian instruction to children adopted from Armenia who are now living in the Diaspora. The ALP offers live, virtual instruction, in both Eastern and Western Armenian, to the children, their families, and anyone in the global community interested in gaining an appreciation for the Armenian language. The ALP is overseen by SOAR-Yerevan, with proceeds benefiting
SOAR's Orphan Transitional Program.
I am Loucine, a graduate of Yerevan State University, faculty of Armenian Philology, a specialist of Eastern Armenian and Western Armenian languages, PhD (Doctor of Philology). I have worked as a lecturer, scientist, editor and teacher of Armenian for 18 years. Currently, I am teaching Eastern and Western Armenians to foreigners, mainly to English-speaking people.
My name is Sona and I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics: Italian Language from Yerevan State Linguistic University after V. Brusov in 2013. I am currently a Master's student there in the Department of Linguistics: Linguistics and Typology. I am also a freelance translator and have also held many positions as a translator and interpreter. Currently, I am working as a translator for the renowned Armenian artist Rafael Megall and Italian Art Critic Demetrio Paparoni as well as a translator for SOAR. I am fluent in Armenian, Italian, and English and also speak Russian.
