online Greek courses. The professional team of tutors teach Greek at all levels from complete beginners to the highest level of written and oral proficiency in the language.— Learning Greek has become even more accessible. The Online Greek Tutor is an organisation which provides
In general, the language levels taught by the Online Greek Tutor follow the levels recognised by the European Union, the CEFR framework, i.e. A1, which is beginners’ level, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 which is the highest level and may be considered as native or near-native competence. The syllabus is set out clearly and the learning paths are well-defined and pedagogically sound.
The course content of lessons may be varied according to the needs of the student. But the general direction of the CEFR framework has been proved to be a very effective way of learning a language and for that reason, the Online Greek Tutor uses the framework as the basis for course, syllabus and lesson planning.
All aspects of language learning are addressed in the courses. Language learning may be divided into the main language skills of listening and reading which can be classed as language inputs and speaking and writing which can be classed as language outputs. The fifth language skill is the skill of cultural and social awareness. Some students may wish to develop some of the skills to a greater degree than the others, for example, the student may wish to concentrate on listening and speaking more than reading and writing. Thanks to the nature of the teaching at the Online Greek Tutor, these personal choices are easily catered for.
The course delivery is online using Zoom or Skype. As other suitable platforms become available, the Online Greek Tutor adapts the delivery mechanism as appropriate. Classes are available in the following formats: one-to-one private lessons, semi-private lessons for two learners at the same level and group lessons for three to six people working at the same level and selected for optimal learning in the group situation.
The tutors at the Online Greek Tutor are all experienced, professional tutors who will assess a student’s learning style and motivation as well as their starting level and design a programme of learning which will enable the student to learn to the best of their ability.
Ursula is a student from Ireland with a background in languages and teaching: “I wanted to learn to speak Greek as I intended to spend a large part of my time in Greece once I retired. I found that my tutor at the Online Greek Tutor, Valentinos, had a gift for teaching in a way that motivated me and I have really moved ahead in my learning. I feel comfortable socialising, banking or shopping online or in person in Greek and I’m hoping to take my B2 exam next year.”
The types of courses offered by the Online Greek Tutor are suitable for students seeking to learn Greek for different reasons. These courses are available: General Greek, which follows the CEFR levels A1 to C2 and may include preparation for official certificate exams, Conversational Greek which develops spoken fluency for students from intermediate levels and above, Greek for Tourists which enables tourists to gain a basic grasp of spoken Greek and Cypriot Greek for people of Cypriot heritage. In addition, the Online Greek Tutor has produced a number of self-paced courses which can be downloaded and used at one’s own pace. An example is the 50 Natural Greek Expressions Course which includes MP3 recordings as well as text files to enable students to use colloquial expressions in Greek which enhances fluency and enables students to engage in meaningful social interactions.
Another part of the provision is a short weekly online video available free to all students, addressing a specific language topic. The archive of previous video lessons is also available free of charge.
The first lesson is a trial lesson which is free. The tutor assesses the student’s needs, motivation and learning style. This enables the tutor to design a tailor-made programme for each student.
The Online Greek Tutor provides a comprehensive set of options for learning Greek online. The team of professional tutors teach all levels and the selection of courses available covers a very wide range, meaning that everyone who might want to learn the Greek language will find a course suited to their needs.
