The ultimate goal is to bring participants to an effective level of communication, which requires a solid base of language skills and a real understanding of the cultural context. Through communication activities, as well as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and cultural exercises, each participant will learn to:
- understand, using real audio and video taken from movies, radio, music.
- talk, using role-plays, debates, social interactions, to live a real life in Athens; drama workshops including practical activities, with improvisation exercises to improve basic skills and eliminate inhibition; training in pronunciation, speech flow and gesture.
- read, analyze authentic texts from Greek newspapers and magazines, business, literature, government documents, etc.
- write, using various texts with communication objectives and precise linguistic development. Grammar is approached through language games and exercises.
Choosing the right level is important to improve your skills.
