One-to-one courses in Modern Greek

Why choose an one-to-one or tailor made language programme

Group courses are not the answer to everyone’s needs. If group lessons cannot fully respond to your needs or the demands of your schedule, a one-to-one course may be the most efficient and economical solution in the long run.   In a course of this type, the tutor can concentrate on your individual needs and, usually,  you need less than half the time for each level than you would in a group course. 

Some Case Studies

  • You  already live in Greece and have quite a lot of vocabulary and expressions which you can use for your day-to-day communication, but your reading and writing skills may be poor.
  • You learnt Greek as a mother tongue (through your parents) but your schooling was in English or another Language; you have little or no reading and writing abilities.
  • You are a business person operating from Greece and need to be able to use language typical in business situations, meetings and negotiations
  • You are a diplomat and although you may be a beginner, you need to learn a variety of Modern Greek which is suitable for use in formal situations
  • You are going to be in Greece for a short stay and would like to make the most of your one or two weeks in order to begin or improve your Greek

Range of Programmes available

One-to one programmes can be arranged for general purpose Greek or for Special Courses (e.g. Business Greek or  Ancient Greek).  Hourly rates start at 30 euros for general Modern Greek courses (levels A-B). These courses can be arranged throughout the year even at your own office or company premises. Tuition for these courses can be viewed here.

The topic areas mentioned above are just an indication of what the types of courses that we can undertake to design and teach. Specially designed courses entirely tailored to your job or interest needs, e.g. music terminology or legal terminology, are possible. And, of course, being a teacher education centre, we are very interested in helping  teachers of Modern Greek whose native language is other than Greek, to improve their level to that required of a professional teacher.
