Well beside the Assimil book in french, I have an other very good book for east armenian. It is called "spoken language series".It is about self-teaching language courses, 30 languages, that has also an east armenian course accompanied by recordings. I don't know if you can find it coz it has been published for the first time in 1975, but it is exellent...but anyway if you don't find it, use the Assimil book, since u understand french, it is good too.
I'll give you some info's about the american book here. It might be a help:
Spoken language series, Modern-east Armenian, by Gordon H. Fairbanks & Earl W. Stevick, joint author,
Published by spoken lang. series, Inc. /P.O. Box 783
Ithaca, New York 14850
By the way, do you know what your name means in greek? Alex-andros: alex comes from the verb 'alexo' that means to protect, and andr- is the genitive stam of the word "aneer" that means man, person, people, thus alexander means the one who protects the humans, the people.
This alex- preffix is used in greek also in other words for instance: Alexi-keravno= lightning rod/conductor/arrester(keravnós meaning lightning
-Alexisphero= bullet-proof, (sphero meaning bullet)
-Alexipyro= fire-screen/proof, (pyr= fire)
-Alexiptoto=parachute, (ptosis =(down)fall), thus the object that protects you from the fall...etc
Have a nice evening & good luck + courage with hayeren...bachikner!!
