The students will be introduced to the Greek language and will gain a basic understanding and command.
Complete beginners or people with a very basic understanding of the language. Also ideal for students who have attended the summer short course and want to learn further!
No prior experience in Greek is required. The course is aiming at introducing Greek to foreign students. A good level of English will be helpful. Your tutor will be a native speaker of Greek, but will use English as the common linguistic medium for grammatical input.
The students will gain a basic understanding and command of the Greek language and by the end of it they are expected to be able to use Greek and form basic conversations, read and write short paragraphs. You will be able to : • Get to know the Greek alphabet, pronunciation and learn how to spell • Identify some basic concepts of Greek grammar • Hold and understand simple dialogues within the topic areas covered : usual expressions, greetings, introduce yourself and others, daily schedule, location, shopping, weather, making appointment and suggesting meeting, time, weekend activities(hobbies).
Mainly conversation; role-play and vocabulary/grammar linked to particular topics addressed. Basic reading and writing included. We use course books, handouts, worksheets and audio. You will be encouraged to speak as much as possible in class, to work in small groups and pairs, to take an active part in your learning; and each lesson, to work on the four skills: listening (and understanding), speaking, reading and writing.
1-2 hours revision/ study per week which includes reviewing and practising the previous lesson together with homework set by the tutor. Reading such as newspapers is highly recommended and of course speaking outside the classroom !
You will be encouraged to assess your own progress within the classroom based on the speaking and reading activities together with short assessments and revisions and with support from your tutor. Record of your work will be kept in your Individual Learning Plan to help record the steps taken towards achieving your goals.
