Greek lessons for children and teenagers in Ikaria, Greece
For the younger children (8-13): Lessons are held for four hours per day, with breaks, and include a balanced mix of activities. Each lesson focuses on enriching vocabulary and developing the skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Necessary grammar is also taught through language games. Toys, painting and art, songs and stories are all used to turn lessons into play.
For children aged 14-17: Lessons are held for four hours per day, with breaks. During each lesson the necessary grammar is taught through language games. Again, emphasis is given to the active use of vocabulary, which is enriched through the use of texts, word games, and projects around a common theme. In this way, older children are motivated to think and express themselves in Greek on topics which interest them.
After lessons, we organize activities with local Ikarian children, such as hikes, lessons in chess, art workshops, photography, theater, cooking, singing, and traditional dances. Students will make new friends, and practice Greek at the same time, gaining greater confidence in the use of the language and strengthening their motivation to continue learning.
