During for weeks (May 11 – June 6), AVC Learning Zone 2.0 will deliver 20 new exciting topics on the Armenian language, history, music, gastronomy, chess, and architecture. While half of the learning process consists of self-education based on daily activities, the other half gives an opportunity for live communication and discussions with peers, guest speakers, and caring AVC instructors during online Meetups or on thematic forums.
As a response to a high interest in online chess sessions among AVC Learning Zone attendees, the Second Edition foresees a special novelty for chess lovers of any age. Anyone passionate about chess will be able to make their moves and show their mastery within global online chess tournament, which will start later this month.

The first edition of the free e-learning platform also lasted a month and had a great success both inside Armenia and in Diaspora attracting over 500 platform users on daily basis.
