Modern Greek

Our lessons cover a variety of age groups (from reception to teenagers) and levels (from absolute beginners to GCSE and GCE A Level exams) and they are carried out by carefully selected tutors, whose aim is to primarily engage students and motivate them to explore Greek language and culture.

Whether your child is an absolute beginner or already has some basic or more advanced knowledge of the language, we make a point of offering lessons which are enjoyable and stimulating, through a variety of teaching methods and resources individually selected for each student.

Our resources as well as the interactive and engaging teaching approaches we support, help us create lessons which are educational, exploratory, engaging for students and tutors alike and, above all, successful in meeting the students’ and parents’ objectives.
