5 extra reasons to learn modern Greek
A personal solution just for you!
To start with, the lessons are not only adjusted to your level in Greek but also to your learning profile.
Your learning style, your personal interests, needs and expectations from the course, will determine the structure and content of the lessons.
For this reason, the teaching material gets continously complemented and adapted to support best and boost your progress. A variety of sources is used to prepare you for communicating in real-life situations and material met around in our daily life. For instance, invitations, menus, announcements, signs, payment bills, advertisements, directions and much more.
Likewise, we improvise with learning activities simulating common social occasions, so you become a confident speaker of the Greek language.
Lessons are not restricted to a handbook's material and activities.
Optimal support and encouragement!
Merely understanding is not enough. What we are aiming at is using Greek correctly in everyday personal or professional situations and also appropriately according to the social circumstance.
For this to happen, you have an active role in the learning sessions and are engaged to a variety of activities, receiving at the same time all the necessary feedback you need.
Following a steady pace, exposing you to related material of buildable complexity, enables you to understand the Greek language more profoundly and remember better what you are learning.
Whereas, error correction -what I was specialized in during my post-graduate studies- takes place during the learning process in a way that promotes your fluency but doesn't hold back your ability to communicate effectively with other people in Greek.
Greek and only . . . almost!
Immersion to the Greek language and culture requires maximum Greek input. In principle, I speak in Greek during the lesson to enable you to develop your instict of the language. This exposure though to Greek happens in a step-by-step and repetitive way that doesn't cause you anxiety or frustration.
Sometimes a second language, usually English or French and less often German, is used but only when this is necessary. For instance, to explain something complicated, to show an equivalent from another language to Greek or to give instructions or feedback to complete beginners.
Those of you lacking a good knowledge in one of the above three intermediary languages, will soon realise that languages and cultures have much more in common than we expect. In fact, it is this lack that will make it for you faster to adapt to the new language and immerge to the Greek culture.
From lesson one you are taught techniques to deal with unknown words and structures, encouraging you at the same time to experiment with the language. Studying the etymology is one such way. These techniques will prove very helpful for dealing with memory gaps or inefficiences outside the classroom too, in real-life situations.
