With the cooperation of the organizations who have invited the learners to Greece (non profit non governmental organizations and Universities) a special tailor made programme is being created according to the needs and the scientific interests of the students, as well as on the character and the theme of their visit (environment, culture, pedagogy, social support, et al)
The aims of this programme are:
• To promote and learn the Greek Language in order to facilitate their life and studies in Greece
• To develop intercultural skills for every participant
• To get informed about social and educational questions that concern Greek youth today
• To meet with Greek students of Higher Education, unions and associations, colleges et al, and to develop friendly relations and projects of cooperation and communication
The Hellenic Culture Centre, with its experienced staff in organizing education and cultural activities, supports the Greek language programme by language teachers specialized in teaching Greek as a foreign language and the intercultural education seminars by facilitators experienced in working with young people.
The programme is being organized all year round upon request and contact with groups of volunteers or/ and University students and could be held at the NGO offices as well.
