As soon as you watch the video lectures, you’ll have exercises, quizzes, and audio files to do to master the materials. It depends on your own pace, but an average of 2 sections per week is the ideal pace for you to finish the course.

Why this course:

  • This course is designed by professional tutors
  • The lectures and the exercises are designed using best practices in language learning
  • You learn by immersion. The whole course is in Greek (with English and Greek subtitles). This means that you’ll listen to Greek for the whole duration of the course and this will help you familiarize yourself with the sound of the Greek language.

  • Anyone who would prefer to learn Greek at his/her own pace and time
  • Anyone who has very limited knowledge of Greek (just the Greek alphabet) and wishes to acquire basic fluency in communicating in Greek.

This course is not for:

  • People who like to work with a professional tutor to guide them through the process of learning the language.

Your Instructor

My name is Valentinos Filippou. I have been an online Greek tutor since 2014. I’ve been teaching one-on-one Skype lessons and making video lessons for my students so as to explain different aspects of the Greek language. Except for this course, I have also developed the 50 Natural Greek Expressions Course which will help you learn the 50 most common expressions that Greek people use in daily life as well as the Christmas Greek course which will help you learn the Greek customs related to Christmas. I have also spent three years at Liverpool’s Greek School in Liverpool (UK) teaching and giving private Greek lessons there. I focus on general, everyday Greek and I now specialize in adult learners.
