U.S. Embassy Expands English Access to Remote Areas of Armenia

The Embassy of the United States in Armenia


YEREVAN—On Tuesday, the U. S. Embassy in Armenia, together with Children of Armenia Fund (COAF), launched a new English learning initiative that will expand English learning resources in remote areas of Armenia.

The Expanding English Access – Reaching Remote Regions with New Technologies project was initiated and is funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented in partnership with COAF.

The project will reach language-learners in Armenia’s remote regions, where resources for learning English are either limited or non-existent. The program is intended for post-high school youth in regional towns via the Internet and selected regional libraries and schools.

The recruitment focused on the 17-35 year-old demographic, a group that does not generally have access to classroom resources or instruction if not attending university or private classes.

The curriculum is composed of two streams – social and business English. It includes two online classes twice a week and one face-to-face communicative English class with a local teacher once a week. The pilot phase includes approximately 150 participants from Armavir, Gavar, Yeghegnadzor and Goris.

    This is good news, they should build on their friendship with the US. It’s dangerous to depend on Russia alone. Those people are a bit too pragmatic, making arms sales to ugly dictator Alibaba-oglu.

    This is great, opening the door for American propaganda machine . . ..

      Yes, because “propaganda” cannot be translated into more than one language…

    • Armenian said:

      What hypocrisy. Why don’t you recognize Russia’s agenda and the destructive role that’s taking on Armenia’s development and growth as a nation?

        Open your eyes! we all know and recognize that Russia has an agenda, but it coincides with our interests…
