Su di me

Γεια σας!

Hi! I am Maria and I am a teacher of modern and ancient Greek with 20 years of experience. I hold a MA degree in Teaching Greek as a foreign language and a BA degree in History and Archaeology both from the University of Athens. I love teaching people from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds and I strongly believe in online language teaching as a very efficient method of learning.

For the last 5 years I have been teaching online through Skype and my classes are very interactive, convenient and adapted to my students’ pace. I started my professional career by teaching privately modern and ancient Greek to secondary education students and in parallel, I worked in private schools in Athens and Tirana. I currently teach Modern Greek as a foreign language to foreigners living in Athens, such as Embassies members and their families and business executives. Thanks to my previous studies in History and Archaeology (BA from the University of Athens), my students really enjoy learning some Greek history that I include in my courses.

During my teaching career I acquired the ability to communicate complex information in an understandable way students can easily comprehend by designing and developing educational objectives, the appropriate lesson plans and preparing teaching materials with the use of new technologies. In my courses, I emphasize the importance of communication and the practical uses of language. I consider therefore communication as the most suitable approach, because it gives a lot of emphasis on realistic situations making the learner aware of how the language actually works (that does not mean that I don't give the same importance to the grammar rules and the syntax, especially to the advanced levels). I also practice pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary using creative and interactive methodology.

For me a new language is an exploration of a new world.
