Adult Greek Classes

Modern Greek Language Program
Adult and Certification Preparation Courses Spring 2014
Classes Begin: Saturday, 11 of January 2014
Registration Form

The Odyssey Charter School is offering Adult classes of Modern Greek at the Upper School Campus. These courses give prospective adult students an opportunity to learn Modern Greek in a simple and easy way by teachers who are native Greek speakers. Our teachers use the natural approach for fast and comprehensive learning; they put emphasis on vocabulary acquisition, conversation, grammatical and structural forms, and provide cultural evidence to their students in order to understand native Greek speakers' attitudes by using a variety of resources.

Our aim is to enable each student to speak, read and write the Greek language. In addition we would like to promote the Greek culture and history as an important factor of global civilization.

This is a Semester Modern Greek Program; the total hours of instruction are 34 (90 minutes per week) from 9: 30 a. m. – 11: 00 a. m. Classes are scheduled as follows:

    January 11, 18, 25
    February 8, 15, 22
    March 8, 15, 22, 29
    April 5, 12
    May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
