We adhere to the rigor and detail of the Hellenic Ministry of Education’s own guidelines so you learn Greek just like the Greeks do—customized for learners living outside the country. You’ll master each of the core learning standards for foreign language education: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.

 

  • We apply motivational gameplay methodology on our digital platform to make fluency fun via games, animated videos, songs and quizzes.

More than just words

Our Greek language lessons immerse you in the history, art and traditions of the land that gave birth to Western culture as we know it, helping you to not only learn grammar and pronunciation, but also to understand its meaning and spirit.

We believe every learner should graduate from Greek123 with a genuine immersion in the culture, so that when you’re ready to talk in real life you already have common ground with native speakers.
