I like the sound of Armenian. I mean, how many other languages allow consonant clusters like khndrem? (Answer: Georgian.) The problem is that I find the script incredibly ugly and have no use for it, so I don't have any motivation to learn it.

I know this is a cliché but all Armenian letters look alike to me. I can't tell them apart and it makes the language unreadable to me.

Those consonant clusters end up getting broken up in real speech by schwas (which I suspect might be the case in Georgian and other languages with seemingly-impossible consonant clusters as well). And you are totally right about the script. It's one of the most difficult aspects of an already difficult language. All the letters look alike, and there are too many variations (capital vs. lowercase and print vs. cursive means sometimes learning up to four different forms for each letter). Even when I developed a passable level of speaking in the language, I gave up on reading and relied on signs written in Cyrillic to get around Yerevan.

This might sound like a silly question but how much English is used in Yerevan? I read in the other thread most Armenians know Russian, but I was just wondering if English was also widely used or not.

This is funny to me, because the script is the one thing I remember well from my bouts of trying to learn the language. I used to drive my partner crazy by using it to fill out crosswords (so he couldn't find them and complete them himself).

I had to come up with some odd mnemonics, however. Like the way I keep from confusing ո and ս is that the one that looks like a consonant is the vowel (/o/) and the one that looks like a vowel is the consonants (/s/).

Extraordinarily little. Less than any other country I've been to in the world. I learned Armenian there not because I was interested in the language per se, but because I didn't know Russian and hardly anyone seemed to understand a word of English.

Oh Wow that's kidn of cool though if someone wanted to learn Armenian and went to Armenia to practice, they couldn't fall back on English. (That of course if they didn't know Russian :P)
