The Greek Community of Melbourne’s Language & Culture Schools is introducing a unique initiative for students of all ages to improve their conversational Greek Skills. The classes are an excellent opportunity to cultivate the knowledge of Greek for those interested in developing their conversational skills.
All participants in the program can join a Greek-speaking group from the comfort of their homes by talking about everyday issues that interest them.
The program was launched during the pandemic to meet students' needs for communication. Its success led to the establishment of courses consistently. It is structured as a discussion co-shaped by the participants, who choose the topics that interest them and interact, essentially learning from each other naturally and effortlessly, without the stress of exams or preparation.
Christina Soumi, The Greek Community of Melbourne’s Language & Culture Schools teacher, shared her thoughts on the exciting initiative "Learning Greek does not mean going to a school and just learning grammar.
Learning Greek means conversing and chatting about everyday issues with the people we love. In our classes, we spend 40 minutes with the students, and we aim to allow them to meet in a friendly environment and discuss things that concern them. Furthermore, our main objective is to reinforce, support and provide the tools to the next generation to gain the skills to hold a conversation and expand their horizons”!
As many of our Australian-born students are preparing to travel to Greece and see relatives, it is an excellent opportunity to attend our classes and connect even more with their homeland and loved ones.
For those on the courses can find more information on the website of the G.C.O.M.V.
Participation fees per term: $65 for students of G.C.O.M.V. Schools, $85 for non-students.
The online Conversational Skills Program is also offered to students from Prep to VCE and Adults.
