Course description

This course is separated into two parts, each consisting of 8 week sessions. Must be taken in sequence.

Learning the Greek Language is an exciting journey! This course is for beginners who have no prior knowledge of Greek. It provides a very basic acquaintance with the language, enough to allow students to communicate in daily situations. They will learn how to introduce themselves, ask and provide information, count in Greek, etc. Along with reading and writing, students will be able to recognize the letters of the Greek alphabet, road signs, street names, Greek products, labels and any other written Greek they might come into contact with, on a daily basis. Very basic grammatical structures are taught through simple dialogues and phrases. Students are encouraged to create their own dialogues and to use their Greek outside the classroom. It will not be all Greek to you anymore!
