Planning a trip to Greece soon? If you are visiting Greece in the near future or want to grasp a little Greek lingo this three mornings Greek Basics course is the course for you.
This short course aims to give students enough essential travel phrases to get by on a visit or to interact with Greek speakers but will remain fairly basic.
By the end of the course successful students should be able to:
- give and receive basic greetings
- Use numbers and currency
- order and pay for food and drink in a restaurant or cafe
Basic Greek grammar will be taught and students will also gain an insight into the culture.
1 hour per day is allocated for breaks and lunch.
There is a cafeteria with vending machines, a cafe on campus in the Gym or bring a pack lunch.

About the Tutor: Andrea Maria Kourellias
How will I be taught?
The emphasis is on oral communication (speaking and listening) but some reading and writing will be included. A variety of teaching strategies will be used. Cassettes/CDs and videos/DVDs may be used. You will study individually and also participate in pair and group work. The foreign language will be used most of the time.
Initial assessment is carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student starting point is recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets are set to aid development of the skill. These are revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress.
What do I need to have with me?
Please bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts. Unless details are outlined above, we advise not to buy equipment, books or materials until after the first session.
What can I do next?
Your tutor will advise you on the appropriate follow up course.
What do I need to join the course
