Do Armenians Speak Russian?
Yes, most people in Armenia can speak Russian, but it’s not their native language.
Armenians speak Armenian – a language that is the only official language of Armenia. The official dialect of the language is called Eastern Armenian. Although most Armenians can speak Russian, it is not their native language and they would usually only speak Russian to people who do not know Armenian.
Russian is one of the most important languages in Armenia because it was used by the Soviet Union for educational purposes and has had a big impact on modern-day life in Armenia. Armenia was part of the Soviet Union until 1991, so most Armenians speak the language, especially the older people. Younger generations seem to be not interested in learning how to speak Russian because they don’t think it will be useful, even though it’s a beautiful language
The Armenian language is the only living Indo-European language in the Armenian Highland. It is an independent branch of the Indo-European, and has no known relationship to any other languages. The Armenians are widely considered to be one of the oldest nationalities in the world. They have had a presence in the world for more than 3,000 years and this has had a huge impact on their culture and way of life. This is most evident when you look at the food, art, music, dance, language and other elements that make up an Armenian’s day-to-day life.
