About the course

After you take a placement test to determine your proficiency in the Greek language, the teacher will set up a personalized program to work on what is needed for the chosen Greek exam level. Usually this will be a mix of both vocabulary and grammar work. You will also be taken through various speaking and writing exercises designed to improve all your language skills. In addition, you will get the chance to work on previously administered written and oral exams and discuss them with your teacher.
