Greek Beginners

Course Overview

If you think Greek is not an easy language to learn, we’ll help you change your mind.

Starting from the alphabet and the pronunciation, we will slowly move on to building our first sentences and communicating in modern Greek before you know it.  

Whatever your motivation to learn, be it for upcoming travels to Greece, to sharpen your cognitive skills, increase your understanding of your own culture… or just have fun, begin your journey here! 

From the exhilaration of understanding a new concept to the frustration of not being able to grasp a particular rule, within small classes tutors take time to explain concepts and make learning a language fun.

About the tutor

Roy Gerente

Roy was born and raised in Athens, Greece. She studied Italian language and literature and has a master’s degree in teaching. She moved to Australia in 2017. She channels her love and passion for her country by sharing her knowledge of the Greek language and culture with people. Greece is a state of mind, a collection of sensations, colours, tastes and sounds that bring people together in a very special way. Starting from the basics and learning how to communicate in simple everyday situations will help students prepare for a journey in Greece, learn the language of their ancestors or stimulate their brain with a completely different language. In Roy’s class, students are encouraged to participate in a fun and relaxing environment where mistakes are welcomed as friends.
