The Hellenic Culture Centre offers since 2009 online Greek Language Courses in all language levels (Α0, Α1, Α2, Β1, Β2, C1, C2) as well as special preparation courses for the Certificate of Attainment in Greek in all levels. The Centre offers also special courses for practicing speaking and listening skills, and for keeping in touch with contemporary Greece (programme GREECE NOW @HCC – level C2+).

All the language teachers at the Hellenic Culture Centre are certified and experienced in teaching Greek as a second and as a foreign language to adults and adolescents. They also have experience in online teaching and they are native speakers of Greek.

Courses are held through the online educational platform Moodle and the educational platform GLOSSA, where all relevant learning materials are uploaded (texts, exercises and activities for all language skills, library) as well as through synchronous Skype meetings, once or twice a week.

No special knowledge on technology is required, however a 15-min introductory session is offered for free, in order for the students to familiarize themselves with the use of the platform and Skype. Students are required to have a good internet connection and a headset with a microphone.

Before registering students have to do a grading test, in order for the tutors to check students’ language level and educational needs. Ask us to guide you to the test suitable for you.
