Learn Modern Greek - Νέα Ελληνικά - Learn grammar, syntax, vocabulary, speaking and writing.

If you have always been intrigued by this unique language with a grate history, but you don't know where to start -
Look no further!

Hi! (Γειά!)

My name is Kat. It's a shorter version of Katerina (Αικατερίνη or Κατερίνα), or Catherine as you know it in its English form.

Hope I'm not scaring you off already!

I am a singing teacher with special training in orthophony.
I am a native Greek polyglot. I speak English at a native level thanks to my traveling family. I also speak Japanese, Danish and Swedish.


As you may know, there are many versions of the Greek language, due to constant changes throughout history.

Some well-known versions are Ancient Greek (and they are categorised by period, dialect, and form), Katharevousa (conceived in the late 18th century), and Modern Greek (Demotic). We call it "Νέα Ελληνικά" (Nea Elinika).

Although Ancient Greek are studied in universities around the world, they are not used anymore. Many people with degrees in Ancient Greek would never be understood when speaking in modern Greece, unfortunately.

With me you will be learning the alphabet, the grammar rules, and the syntax as used in modern times. Next time you visit Greece for your vacation, you will be able to speak freely and be understood. No matter what your mother tongue is, and how heavy the pronunciation you have, you will be able to bypass it and master the real sounds we use in Greek.

I am not only a singing teacher. I have taught English to a group of Japanese teenagers, and helped them correct pronunciation before their studies abroad. In the past, I was also teaching art to young kids of ages 7 to 9.

I have devoted my life to teaching. My method has been specifically developed to match the subject and the student. My motto is that the teacher must be the one to adjust to the student each and every time. I have been a part of the teachers network in ApprentUs for over a year.

Send me a message with all your questions and we can start immediately. My plan will have you speaking Modern Greek in a month.


Why learn Greek?

* Because it is the root to many other languages around the world. After learning Greek vocabulary, you will start understanding the original meaning of so many words for example in English, Spanish, etc. You will learn how to find the root in every unknown word, and gain a different perspective on language learning. We Greeks learn a very complex language that keeps developing to the day, and we have great techniques to master it fast.

* Rare and exotic languages have become very popular the last years. Languages like Korean and Japanese, too. Greece is probably already a place you visit often so you can actually put your learning to the test!

* There are Greeks everywhere. As a Greek living abroad in Scandinavia for the past 5 years, I still cannot believe how often I meet other Greeks in the streets of Copenhagen and Malmö, where I usually stroll. Knowing Greek can come in handy if we ever decide to take over the world!

* You live for the challenge. Admit it, the more difficult the language, the best it feels when you actually speak it. I will be helping along the way, through any difficulty.

* Greeks can't help but fall in love with people who try to speak their language! You try it, and you'll see a huge smile on their face. You will probably earn some free shots of tsikoudia or ouzo.

Extra information

No need to keep notes, because I will be providing the lesson's notes after the end of our session. There will be homework, but the intensity will depend on your needs. You control how fast we go! Lessons are only arranged one on one for efficiency.

About Me

I work with the best people on Earth!
Those who wish to learn!

Hi,
My name is Ekaterine, but you can call me Kat. I teach singing.
I am a professional singing performer with experience with live gigs, recordings, music composition, and arrangement. I have finished musical studies in Greece and participated in dozens of interesting musical projects. I enjoy working on original music and lyrics and I have always shown great interest in complex singing techniques, their application and their deeper development.

My lessons have a structure that works with most people but can also be adjusted to everyone's needs. Get ready for some fun and relaxing exercises that feel better than therapy.

I am not only a music teacher!
- I also teach English and therapeutic orthophony to kids.
- I was a volunteer music therapist for kids in hospitals in Greece in 2017.
- I also used to teach English pronunciation to a group of Japanese teens before their studies in Europe.

My strongest characteristic is my unlimited patience for those who wish to learn.

I speak English, Danish, Greek, and Japanese.
* The lessons will be in English, but you can sing in any language you want when we practice!

I've been having singing classes with Kat for almost 6 months. I'm enjoying so much going to class with her once a week ! My goal is to get to know my voice, have fun, understand how it all works ; and Kat is amazing for adapting her exercices to your level ! She is supporting me in my comfort zone and also challenging me enough to evolve a bit more each time we meet. She is gifted with patience and humour, I can tell. You'll always get the meaning of the exercice she's asking you to do, which helps having an overview of what's happening in class. Thanks again Kat for all those breathing breaks in my week ! :)

Dora

Hello everybody! My name is Dora. I am from Thessaloniki, Greece and I live in Maastricht, Netherlands. I graduated from the Department of Philology with a specialization in Classics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. With the four-month Erasmus internship as a teacher of Greek language at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, I had the opportunity to gain teaching experience and interact with people of different cultural background. It improved my communication skills and boosted my self-confidence and, also, gave me the chance to realise the importance of digital media in education. I speak Greek, English and French. All the educational material is provided by me! I am looking forward to meeting you!

MY METHODOLOGY Expert for beginners, since I have worked a lot on my "beginners" method which is based on my own experience in collaboration with specialist writers from CLE international and so we proceed in stages. My methodology for other levels includes a variety of documents + books from major publishing houses, authentic sound documents, grammar exercises, animated dialogues, role plays with the learner, phonetics exercises, morphosyntax, analyzes of press articles or magazines from the same day of the real news and thus develop the side of French civilization and culture too much demanded for the DELF, DALF, SORBONNE exams. On webcam I share my screen, I write most of the terms and I send them after the lesson in pdf on the email of the student. The student will be able to print my notes. I also use specialized methods for English speakers. My lesson is not limited to an hour of 60 minutes because I send you throughout the week videos, magazines of your interest: arts, fashion, politics, history, health etc.
