Learn Modern Greek Through Greek Culture - Modern Greek

I am a native Greek speaker with a degree in Journalism, Creative Writing and Cinema.
My teaching method is mainly based on the student's needs. I follow a structured plan of grammar, syntax and spelling, but I find that knowledge sticks with you when you have fun with it. So I talk with my students about their interests and we find ways to tailor the lessons to them. I believe that the best way to learn a foreign language is through its culture.

About Me

I believe that learning a foreign language is not just a new way of communicating. It's a way to broaden one's horizons and to understand a different culture. It is a tool that helps us visit a foreign country, but also lets us understand how cultures are interconnected around basic human experiences.

Education

Master of Art in Film Studies at UCL (2018).
Master of Science in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh (2017).
Undergraduate in Communication, Media and Culture at Panteio University of Social and Political Science in Athens (2015).
Diploma in General and Specialized Translation from English to Greek at Hellenic American Union in Athens (2013).

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught English, French and Greek (as a second language) for two years. I teach in a structured, but alternative way using many sources because I believe that knowledge stays with us when it is connected to things that we love.
I have studied French for about ten years and I have spent a year in Paris. I've been teaching French for 4 years. I have a degree in Journalism, Creative Writing and Cinema. My teaching method is mainly based on the student's needs. I follow a structured plan of grammar, syntax and spelling, but I find that knowledge sticks with you when you have fun with it. So I talk with my students about their interests and we find ways to tailor the lessons to them. I believe that the best way to learn a foreign language is through its culture. .
If you are not an English native speaker and you are looking for help learning or improving your skills, I can help. I have studied English for more than ten years, I have been living in the UK for the last two and I have a degree in creative writing in English. My goal is to provide alternative and fun ways to learn or improve the language (through conversation, songs, literature, history) alongside to the rules of grammar, syntax and spelling. I can also help with the language skills in academic essays. The lessons can be tailored to your needs and passions. We can work together on grammar, spelling and writing skills. We can meet at your convenience: in a library, coffee shop or Skype, wherever suits you best.

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. Currently I am doing my master’s degree in Media Studies: Digital Cultures at Maastricht University. 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!

Teaching Greek and English Online as Second Languages
Greek language is a wonderful language, not only for its grammar and the way words are formed, but because of its story. Together we won't only learn the Greek language, but we will also "travel" to a new culture. Due to the fact that I have graduated as an English teacher, I know how to use various methods to make the process of learning a second language more fun and easy.

Learn (modern) Greek for everyday use, university, tourism with FUN and passion / (ancient) Greek for school and university
I am a native speaker of Greek. I graduated from a Greek high school and, later, the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and spelling. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Greek, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for state certificates such as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE). Regarding Ancient Greek, I can help you with commentaries/translations/grammar/syntax: - Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, - Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Sappho, - Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon.

On webcam in a studious atmosphere, I offer all electronic material free of charge on word and PDF pages. Specializing in both literary and economic texts, I take care of beginners as well as advanced people who want to progress in French. It is the same for all levels in Greek. Graduated from the University of Sorbonne IV Paris, I also work on corrections of memoirs, comments and translations. All the material for the French literary baccalaureate and for the French literature of the Aristotle Universities of Thessaloniki and Kapodistrian of Athens are provided free of charge. 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.

Chara
Modern Greek with a certified and native speaker teacher
'Like water glistening on rocks', is the language of the Greeks. Not an easy language, but a very beautiful one. One that you slowly discover and unravel. Do you often visit Greece and would you like to be able to say something more than 'kalimèra' and 'kalispèra'? Do you have a special relationship with a Greek or are you just interested in this unique language? During the lessons with a certified and native speaker teacher you already know a lot more about: the alphabet and pronunciation, you know many words and you can already say simple sentences. In addition, attention is paid to the culture of contemporary Greece. Knowledge of classical Greek is not necessary.
