Course Details


This online teacher training consists of 15 hours (4 synchronous/ live meetings with the trainers and 11 hours of studying and exchanging ideas and experiences with co-learners) of training. It includes how to design a curriculum and how to plan a lesson based on the characteristics of more than 20 different target groups who learn Greek as a second / foreign language. The final Assignment is the production of a Lesson Plan or a Curriculum which is based on the trainee teachers’ choice and needs, depending on their real needs of their educational context.

Intended for 
  • Greek Language teachers with no or little language teaching experience
  • Practitioners who have experience in teaching Greek in non-formal contexts, i.e., NGOs or wishing to teach a language they know or Greek as L2
  • Experienced language teachers of Greek who feel they need to upgrade their practical skills
  • Directors of language schools who plan to add Greek as L2 and design curricula for different learners’ groups
  • Other educational or managerial staff, of language organisations, assistant or shadow teachers

Apart from study hours according to a time-schedule, the trainees will attend four (4) hours online synchronous Skype sessions with the trainers (optional). The trainers will answer any questions in three days at the latest.

The synchronous sessions are not obligatory, but the trainees could participate in order to ask questions and “meet” all participants.

Trainee teachers have to upload at least one post in every Unit of this seminar and to upload at least ten answers to other participants. They also should work on the Final Assignment as well as to fill in the evaluation form of the seminar.

Trainers will be at the trainees’ disposal in order for the later to contact them through Skype, phone or e-mail.

  1. Educational Contracts and Tools 
  2. Presentation of the participants
  3. The profile of our students
  4. Curriculum Design for teaching Greek as a foreign/ second language
