Teaching Approach

Regarding the teaching methods that I use, I have to say that it depends on the age, the personality, the willingness of the student, the number of the group that I am teaching, the frequency of the lessons and other parameters .

When I teach adults I prefer using a course book, accompanied with personal notes of the grammatical phenomena. I consider it very important to complete a 10-minute short conversation in Greek before beginning the lesson. I also give some words for dictation, due to the fact that the Greek Language is a difficult language concerning both the oral and the written part. Then I give extra homework especially if the student needs to learn specific vocabulary related to his/her job.

When I teach children, I keep the same oral & writing methods, but here I emphasize their interests, by using a non-formal educational way. I create short tasks with rewards, songs, videos, maps etc. What I have realised, with my experience, is the fact that the students are really interested in the Greek mythology. I therefore try to make role-playing games, so as to make the lesson more appealing and interesting to them. Last but not least, I give exercises with fun facts about Greece or idioms of the Greek Language.
