Course Description


The course is structured in three levels:

Level 1 (Beginners, A1-A2): Level 1 is intended for students with little or no previous knowledge of Modern Greek, introducing them to the language within its cultural context. The course is mainly communicative, encouraging oral interaction in everyday situations. At the same time, it highlights the fundamentals of the Modern Greek grammar (explained in English). Students are introduced to aspects of the Greek culture on several occasions.


Level 2 (Intermediate, B1-B2): Level 2 is intended for students with knowledge of Modern Greek at a basic level, aiming to develop further their speaking and writing skills. The course completes the basic grammar of Modern Greek and presents a wide range of cultural-communicative settings as well as a variety of text types on several topics. Students are constantly encouraged to get involved in the process of learning (writing projects, role playing based on relevant scenarios).


Level 3 (Advanced, C1-C2): Level 3 is intended for students who have completed the intermediate level, aiming to bring their skills to the level of proficiency. On the basis of a variety of mostly authentic texts and settings as well as a wide range of in-class activities students become aware of the differences among formal and informal style and have the opportunity to advance their vocabulary and grammar skills.
