Teaching Approach

People think that Greek is a difficult language. However a good teacher can help students to learn it fluently.

My method on teaching is student-centered and my aim is to help students develop oral, listening, reading and writing skills.

During the lesson I use visual and auditory material and also use mimic and body material in order to help students understand easier various phrases and vocabulary.Moreover I play games with my students in order firstly to learn the Greek phonetics and secondly to practice their speaking and writing.

I never begin teaching the alphabet. Students learn it slowly slowly through out the lessons!

I have special lesson plans for English and Russian speakers.
