Family matters the most for Greeks and language helps loved ones remain close
Greek is definitely a very beautiful language to speak but its greatest value can be found in its power to keep diaspora around the world connected to their Greek heritage, culture and most importantly of all, to family.
Family matters the most for Greeks and language helps families remain close. There is nothing more precious to a Greek grandmother than hearing her grandchild saying “σ’αγαπώ γιαγιά”.
For people looking for innovative ways to learn Greek, the solution can be found on the Internet
Greeks of the world have traditionally relied upon the plethora of traditional Greek schools offering great language programs to kids and adults for years.
However, not everybody has easy access to a traditional Greek school.
There are those who live in smaller towns or villages with the nearest Greek school being hours away. Some may live in places where Greek schools are non-existent and it is really difficult to find a qualified tutor.
People with disabilities may also find it difficult to make their way to a Greek school on a regular basis.
For all of these people, the solution can be found on the Internet, with online educational tools and services available such as Greek Lessons Online that are designed to make learning Greek easy and fun.

In some classes, emotions run high
Greek Lessons OnLine offers courses designed to fit every need and level.
The teachers, who are all native Greeks based in Greece, begin their weekly schedule with classes structured to prepare students for the Ellinomatheia Exams and they continue with Business Greek for people who need to improve their Greek for work.
The teaching schedule also includes conversation classes with students who have reconnected with their relatives in Greece after years of being apart and want to learn Greek to communicate with their loved ones.
In these types of classes, emotions run high.
Like when Stella - founder of Greek Lessons OnLine - helped reconnect her student Freda with a very good friend she hadn’t seen in 20 years, who happened to be the beloved Greek actress Rika Dialina.
Or when Maria -a Greek Lessons OnLine teacher from Thessaloniki – holds classes with a student and her entire family from their different locations across the globe in order to help them keep in touch.
But it is the classes for children that are especially loved by the Greek Lessons Online teachers.
Particularly those classes that teach children Greek via Greek mythology. The Greek Lessons OnLine teachers cannot get enough of those!
