Already a junior?!

Only 7 days are left to end this semester – already the fourth one for me.

“As a student majoring in English and Communications, this year was quite challenging for me. ” I have just completed the course evaluation surveys provided by the university and it helped me gather everything that I’ve learned and make final remarks for the year. The reason why this academic year has been challenging is that as an undergraduate student, I couldn’t finally decide what I want to have as my specialization. Continue reading

Changing the Educational Systems

thecriticalspace

Education is the base for everyone’s future. This is a very commonly spread phenomenon that doesn’t even need a debate. Every country tries to make it as efficient as possible; some succeed and some fail.
7242412-3d-white-people-student-carrying-a-stack-of-booksToday I want to talk about the educational systems in Armenia. Referring to mostly public schools, I won’t speak of the state universities because I consider most of them to be in pretty good conditions (Taking into consideration the fact that most graduates find jobs immediately and mostly, they do not have any trouble building their professional careers). Thus, let’s consider Armenian public schools and what could be done to make them more useful.
First, it is worth mentioning that our schools’ course curriculum is a very informative and one, providing students with deep understanding of concepts from different spheres. It teaches the children almost all the theories from a certain field with as much…

Yerevan as it is

There has always been a constant debate on how we define history and what are the most important contributors of the history; what factors should be considered as valuable and what others-some minute details that are not worth mentioning. Today, I want to concentrate on what makes the face of the city, what can be neglected, and why Yerevan is not an international “brand'” yet as a city itself.

11. Concerning Literature; About forming literary Arguments

Some time ago literature for me was only a bunch of stories put on a paper. However, I have always enjoyed reading different books and stories from different periods varying from classics to modern stories. Every book was like a new universe for me and every character from this book was like a planet in this universe. I could endlessly discover, play and mess around with every single personage of the stories and I really loved it. Continue reading

10. The science of nature 

“Human being is an ongoing project” and that’s a phrase that I have heard so many times during my literature classes, but just like many others, I didn’t understand what it really means.
Starting from the first year of my high school, when I began to learn social sciences and take them seriously, I simply fell in love with those. It might seem funny, but the way people act, think and move tells a lot myself. It’s just like I observe others to figure out who I really am. As a matter of fact, every one of us builds his or her own self in the reflection of our environment. This means that we learn from what we witness and copy it in our life and here we are, we become the people we become. Society is more that just a “science”. It’s ambiguous, indefinite and quite deceiving. So, I was stuck it trying to learn more and more about it. Continue reading

Is it freedom though?

Do you consider yourself free? Do you think you actually experience the freedom in any terms that is said to be available for everyone of us?
In today’s world we are exposed to a tricky  reality, which seems to be in favor of every citizen, but the things are getting worse. You are talking about freedom of speech? Do you know how many people die on a daily basis just because they wanted to get back whatever was gotten away from them: their basic rights? You are talking about freedom of choice? Continue reading
