Our approach

This course is taught in Modern Greek and English. Our programme aims to develop the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as cultural awareness. It provides a good balance between understanding the culture, vocabulary and grammar structures of the Modern Greek language and enhancing communication and interaction. It supports comprehensive and productive skills in speech and writing through authentic based activities and guided practice in the use of Modern Greek language. Students will be encouraged to seek opportunities to learn and practise the four skills outside the classroom taking advantage of learning resources provided by tutors and the programme. Group size are limited to 12 students and planned to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.

Progression route

Upon completing the Beginners level (1), you can progress onto the Post-beginners level (2).
