Where could you find a work position?

According to a circular by the Greek Ministry of Education and Religion, all language teachers of primary and secondary education are entitled to teach Greek as a Foreign/ Second Language. Those teachers, in case they are also specialized in teaching Greek as a foreign language, could work either in private language centres such as the Hellenic Culture Centre or in various Vocational Training Centres, in Second Chance Schools, in Adult Education Centres, in Universities' language classes, or in other language programmes organized by various organizations (Local Authorities, IDEKE, GSAE, OAED, etc).

Many NGOs have contributed in organizing language programmes mainly intended for immigrants and refugees , but a teacher could work there primarily as a volunteer.

                                                                                      IMG 4991 nikos low

All 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, listening exercises and activities for all language skills, photos, library, Forum, links to dictionaries and to videos) as well as through synchronous Skype meetings, once or twice a week. During the synchronous meeting with the teacher, students practice speaking, the teacher explains, corrects, and organises their work. Throughout the week the students study on the platform: they can read and listen to texts, play educational language games, do grammar exercises, practice speaking by recording their voice through the platform, do their writings tasks, and send all to their teacher, who corrects within 48 hours at the latest. 

No special knowledge on technology is required, however, a 15-min introductory session is offered for free, if needed, in order for the students to familiarize themselves with the use of the Moodle or the Glossa platforms and the 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. You may also do the test orally, through Skype: the Director of the Centre will call you in order to define your language level and design your learning path, according to your learning objectives.

Teaching materials are based on ideas formulated on teaching in the classroom and are being constantly improved according to their systematic application by our teachers. These materials are also used with large groups in consistence with the principles of individualized teaching. Theyincludealternativetextsandexercisesfor usein mixed-abilities classes and in multilingual-multinational classes.
The aim of our courses is to practice all language skills (oral and written speech production and comprehension). We particularly stress the use of language games and of communicative exercises through which grammar and structure can be effectively learnt.
