Yura Ganjalyan Responses

 

I am the only teacher, still working in our high school, who taught Lilit. At that time our high school was in the building of today's Basic School. Nearly 19 years have passed since Lilit left school. We have had nearly 2500 school leavers so far but Lilit has remained unsurpassed as a learner. In those years 5 hours was allocated to English in our high school according to the curriculum. Without taking private lessons she was able to learn English and Armenian so well that the score of her entrance exams was 59, and she was admitted to Yerevan State University, the Spanish-English department of the Romance Germanic languages with no tuition fee. Her Armenian teacher was Ruben Vardanyan. She was still a university student when Lilit began working as a jounalist for A1+ Tv studio. She could speak about the events in Armenia in 4 languages. I was especially surprised at her journalistic bravery. And now I am delighted by the tunefulness, tenderness and lyrics of her songs. Whatever Lilit takes up she is talented every day and every hour.
