    LA1PK1 - Modern Greek

    Intended for students with no previous knowledge of Modern Greek, this beginner module enables students to acquire a basic understanding of the language and the ability to communicate at a survival level. It will also provide students with an insight into aspects of society and every-day life in Greece and Greek-speaking countries. Please note that students with GCSE or equivalent in the language cannot enrol on a Beginners' class.

  • Student feedback

    What have you gained from this experience?
    Having to commit to certain regular days/times meant that I had to keep the study going which was a great help and kept me motivated. It feels that I have achieved a lot more in the same time than I had previously by using only 'self learn' books and audio.


    Where do you plan to go from here?

    Now that the course has finished I am able to write/speak basic phrases and read modern Greek on the page (and begin to understand it). This has given me the encouragement to continue practising at home from my notes until I feel ready to move to the next level.


    If were to recommend an IWLP language class to others what would you say?

    I found the course teaching to be challenging/stretching yet supportive; the perfect balance; and was impressed by the audio/visual facilities during the course. I highly recommend it.
