Our school is located in the center of Yerevan. It is 10 minutes' walk to the popular places of interest, like the main square (Republic), National Museum, Opera house, Cascade. It's near "Shirak" hotel and it means our students can easily find the place.
My whole experience at Lazarian Dpratoon was great. I had 10 individual lessons with Rouzan, who was a very friendly, and clearly experienced teacher. The first lesson was spent getting a sense of my existing knowledge of the language (quite basic, but not entirely beginner), and discussing what I was hoping to get out of the course - in my case, the aim was to get to grips with the fundamentals of the grammar, so that I can effectively continue to learn the language once I was back at home. The rest of the lessons were then very well organised - Rouzan had a plan for each one, but was also very flexible, if I wanted to discuss something in particular, or simply talk about my experiences in Armenia. She encouraged me to speak as much as possible, balancing the need to correct my mistakes and simply allowing me to practice expressing myself. We often discussed aspects of Armenian culture and history, which I found fascinating, as well as some aspects of the language's origins and logic. All in all, I feel my Armenian improved a lot! (even if there is, as always, much more work to do!). I would definitely recommend this school - which is also very centrally located - and Rouzan in particular, to anybody hoping to learn Armenian.Show details » Read more...
Lazarian Dpratoon and its professional staff allowed me to immerge into the language right away with constant motivation and teaching quality. Communication with the teachers was very friendly and encouraging; classes were adapted to my need, speed and abilities, offering an effective insight and start into the language providing a guaranteed progress throughout. The language school is small but it provides the student with all necessary facilities to learn a language most importantly thanks to the motivation and experience of the teachers which is the best basis to learn a language. All in all I enjoyed my stay and being a student at Lazarian Dpratoon very much and I hope to come back.
I cannot say anything about activities or housing offered by the school as I did not book any of them.
Very friendly approach, excellent teacher, a wide knowledge - not only of the language, a comprehensive knowledge of the country and the people. I highly recommend the school and also Armenia.
I lived in a hotel, learning about the country on the basis of the recommendation of the teacher.
The school was very well located, and Nyne was a very pleasant teacher. She perfectly understood our needs, and the content of her lessons matched them.Show details » Read more...
