Several classes are formed for each course, each consisting of 2-8 students at a similar skill level. The small class size ensures that every student will have the chance to speak and improve their language skills during each hour of instruction. The program of study is divided into 6 levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2), according to the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Courses are adapted to the individual needs and interests of each student, and are intended:
- For adult students of modern Greek at all levels (absolute beginner through intermediate and advanced).
- For adults of any age who wish to begin to study Greek, or who wish to improve their Greek.
- For teachers of ancient or modern Greek.
- For interpreters, and translators.
Our instructors are experienced as teachers of Greek as a foreign language. Grammar and vocabulary are taught via the use of texts and materials written by the Centre. Emphasis is placed on the development of listening and speaking skills. New material (both in grammar and vocabulary) is mastered by students with the use of word games and verbal exercises. During the weeks of instruction students will also have the opportunity to discover some of the less well-known aspects of contemporary Greek life, through songs, music, conversation, presentations and assignments.
