Armenian is a strong, widely spoken language of today, with a rich history that has a hint of mystery to it. It is an excellent language to begin to learn if you have an interest in languages themselves. This might sound as though it could apply to any language, but Armenian has some very interesting singularities within the language itself.
It is fascinating to look at in greater depth as a scholar of languages or simply to understand a language that you probably will not have encountered before.
The Armenian language also has its own script, and does not use a Romanized alphabet. Armenian alphabet is not like any alphabet in the world, it has 38 letters.
