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.

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.

Notes:

  1. A teaching hour is 60 minutes.
  2. The weekly schedule of the group lessons is arranged after consultation amongst the group.
  3. The training fee for the group courses can be paid in two equal rates. The first rate has to be paid 10 days before the start date and the second rate halfway into the course. We strongly recommend paying in one rate though, due to extra bank charges (+3 euro for every payment)
  4. At least 5 hours have to be pre-paid in order for a private course to start
  5. For the levels Β1, C1 και C2 the books KALEIDOSKOPIO B1/C1/C2 by Ifigenia Georgiadou, ed. HELLENIC CULTURE CENTRE, are used. Students can purchase the books on discount by the Hellenic Culture Centre (20 euro instead of 23 euro) or in various bookstores in Greece. The books are NOT necessary for the course since much of their content is uploaded on our platforms.
  6. Ask for discount prices, which are offered on a Happy Lesson week throughout the year

 

Cancellation policy: 

  1. A student can cancel a scheduled PRIVATE lesson 6 hours before and pay no fees.
  2. In case a student cancels the lesson 6 to 3 hours before, s/he has to pay 50% of the lesson fees
  3. In case a student cancels 3 to 1 hour before the scheduled time s/he should pay 100% of the lesson fees.
  4. GROUP and SEMI-PRIVATE lessons cannot be canceled (if the student does not attend a scheduled meeting, s/he pays 100% of the lesson fees if the meeting takes place).
  5. If one student drops out of a semi-private course, the second student will have to continue with PRIVATE lessons.
  6. The programme of lessons agreed has to be completed within one year after the first registration.
  7. If one student drops out of a semi-private course, the second student will have to continue with PRIVATE lessons.

  8. Full refunds will be given up until the last day to register for the programme (1 day before the beginning of the course). For late cancellations, there will be no refund. However, the student is entitled to re-register within one years’ time. In that case, the student only pays the extra cost, if any. When students are given refunds the bank charges are payable by them. In case the course is canceled by the HCC, a full refund will be given to the student at no extra charge.
