Athens, the capital and

Athens Centre

The Athens Centre offers Greek language courses from beginning through advanced levels. Each level (except Advanced Newspaper) consists of 65 hours of classroom instruction. Courses vary in intensity and duration, but all courses with the same level number cover the same materials. For example, a 12 week Greek I course meeting twice a week for 12 weeks covers the same class material as a 3, 4, or 7 week course with the same level number. The types of courses offered are:

Immersion 3 weeks 5 days a week 4 hours a day
Accelerated 4 weeks 3 hours a day
Intensive 7 weeks 3 days a week
Regular 12 weeks 2 days a week 2 1/2 hours a day
Newspaper Conversation 5 weeks

HOLIDAYS MAKE – UP CLASSES
Classes meet on all days indicated within the scheduled dates, except on public holidays. Classes are not re-scheduled to make up for lessons missed due to Greek public holidays.

Course levels are shown by numbers (I, II, III, etc) which indicate a progression from beginning through advanced levels. A detailed syllabus for each level is available at the Athens Centre office, but a brief description is as follows:

Greek I: Basic Greek for beginners. Conversation, vocabulary, elements of grammar, reading and writing for those with little or no knowledge of Greek. Text: Ellinika Tora 1+1, ch. 1-7. See the Syllabus

Greek II: A continuation from Greek I, with further vocabulary and grammar development and improvement of reading and writing skills. Text: Ellinika Tora 1+1, ch. 8-11. See the Syllabus

Greek III: Intermediate Greek, emphasis on conversation, classroom discussion and presentations, more advanced grammar. Text: Ellinika Tora 1+1, ch. 12-15. See the Syllabus

Greek IV: Class discussions based on assigned readings in textbooks and other materials, including newspaper articles; grammar review and development. Text: Ellinika Tora 2+2, ch. 1-6. See the Syllabus

Greek V: Selected prose and poetry read and discussed, short essays assigned, completion of most aspects of grammar, extensive class discussions. Text: Ellinika Tora 2+2, ch. 7-11. See the Syllabus

Newspaper / Conversation: A course based entirely on articles from the Greek press, on selected topics in politics, business, the arts etc., Participants are expected to discuss the articles in addition to analyzing the style, idioms, and language quality. Students must have completed Level IV or above, and must have an oral interview with the instructor to join the class.

Students who are unsure of which level they should join can have an oral interview with an instructor before the class begins. If a student finds that the level or intensity of the class they have chosen is not correct, there is no problem moving to a different level or course.
