Armenian Alphabet

Today I will teach you the Armenian alphabet. If you follow everything provided in this page, you will be able to read, write and pronounce the Armenian letters quickly and easily. I'm providing the sound so that you can hear the pronunciation of the characters. Armenian contains 26 letters (consonants and vowels). Below you will find the letters, the pronunciation and sound.

If you see two pronunciations for the same letter. That means the first is used in the east and the second pronunciation is used in the west of Armenia.
