This Online teacher training course consists of 15 hours (one day of synchronous/live session 09.00-18.00 with the instructor and 5 hours of individual study and communication with fellow students to exchange ideas and experiences).

Intended for 
  • Greek Language teachers with no or little language teaching experience

  • Experienced language teachers of Greek who feel they need to upgrade their practical skills
