Gladys Berejiklian has enthralled fans with unearthed footage from her time spent in Armenia before the pandemic, speaking her native tongue with a journalist in the country her grandparents are from.

Footage of the exchange, which was uploaded to TikTok by Votelabor on Thursday, shows the NSW premier speaking Armenian in what is presumed to be from her trip to the region in 2019.

'Can someone please translate?' The TikTok user posted alongside the video.

Viewers flocked to the post and used the opportunity to reference jokes to the premier's now cancelled daily Covid-19 press briefings.

But one TikTok user, who claimed to speak Armenian, shutdown the commenters by revealing what she actually said in between giggles during the interview.

'She's saying that she is proud of her heritage but it's hard to keep our language alive in the community... she is also saying that we have every day schools which teach Armenian,' she wrote.

In 2018 she revealed in lengthy detail her grandparent's plight during the Ottoman Empire that massacred its Armenian subjects during World War I.
