Modern Greek Evening Classes

Did you know that in the English language there are more than 150,000 Greek words, many of which you already know?

As the oldest and sole survivor of the ancient European languages, with a history of 4,000 years, the Greek language has been the basis of the European civilisation. As a result, it has fundamentally affected other languages and cultures. 

Our evening classes introduce you to the the Modern Greek language in the most accessible way for learners. You will soon be able to order drinks and meals in a Greek tavern, ask for directions, go shopping, and buy tickets for the ferry, train or bus.
