Like many Armenian Americans of my generation, I did not learn Armenian as a child, but I
wanted to learn it as an adult. The fact that Western Armenian is considered an endangered
language prompted a sense of urgency about not only learning the language but preserving it so
that it does not vanish. H. Kurkjian’s textbook provided a means of quickly learning a difficult and
unfamiliar language in a logical, incremental manner. In this way, I believe that we are
preserving the language and, thus, our cultural heritage for future generations. I am proud to be
able to support the publication of the 5th edition of this invaluable textbook.
