Diaspora Teachers Finish Re Training Courses

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–After an exciting month–spent in Yerevan–more than two dozen teachers of the Armenian language from Armenian communities in many countries completed re-training courses Tuesday organized by the Spyurk scientific-educational center of the Yerevan Khachatur Abovian Pedagogical Institute.

"Ten years ago the arrival of an Armenian teacher from Istanbul to Armenia was a great event–today it seems to be an ordinary thing," said the head of the center Suren Danielian.

Sirarpi Ter-Avetisian from faraway Australia who founded an Armenian school there–said the courses were important with respect to maintaining Armenian identity in Diaspora communities.

"I shall send all three of my sons to Armenia," she said adding that one cannot form an idea about Armenia by reading books and looking at maps."
