Do you want to be able to speak Greek at a basic level when visiting Greece ?
This classroom based Beginners Modular course will help you to speak Greek at a basic level and is designed because we know it is difficult to learn a language on your own. Exchanging words and phrases face to face with your tutor and other students will give you the opportunity to practise speaking Greek and develop your language and vocabulary.
Modules A and B will have a welcome introductory session to cover some essential words and phrases (such as greeting, numbers) then start with the topics listed below.

Who is the tutor?
About the Tutor: Andrea Maria Kourellias
How will I be taught?
The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) and some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and Hispanic culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign appropriate language to your level. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play and games etc). Homework set will provide and opportunity for self study including the use of on-line resources.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point will be recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets will be set. This will be revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress. Tutors will mark homework and give written or verbal feedback.
What do I need to have with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. As this is the third module of the course it should continue with the course book used during Module A and B. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
If students wish to progress, the next course is Greek Beginners - Further Steps CAN/33597/D/LC starting on 27/02/16. The tutor will be able to advise you.
What do I need to join the course
