INFORMATION LETTER

The aims of our Language Department are as follows:

  • The teaching of Modern Greek and Russian as a second/foreign language;
  • The Reinforcement/Maintenance of the Mother Tongue of the Russian Speaking Children
  • The certification of level B2 Greek and Russian language knowledge for those who are interested as well as potential foreign students of Greek/Russian higher-level institutions;
  • The exposure of foreigners to various facets and themes of Greek/Russian culture;

These particular courses on Modern Greek are addressed to the Russian-speaking professionals who live and work in Greece and wish to achieve an efficient interaction within the contemporary Greek society. The candidates can enroll on these courses either individually, or as a team of employees working at the same company or office. We provide programs with varied duration (three month, six month and nine week courses), different levels of knowledge (beginner, intermediate and advanced), different times of lessons (morning, noon, afternoon or evening classes) and intensity (intensive or less intensive courses or private lessons).

On the features of our method

Our teachers are highly qualified specialists (both Greek and Russian native –speaking certified teachers) in the field of teaching Greek as a foreign language, graduates of philological faculties of Russian and Greek universities. Russian is also an intermediary language that ensures high quality of education, the use of which will save time on explaining complex grammatical constructions by conducting the analogy with the Russian language system. This comparative approach will also help predict future errors caused by language interference.

Location

We are located in the heart of Thessaloniki, 3' on foot from The White Tower- the city’s most recognizable site and the National Theatre of Northern Greece.
