Greek is a fascinating, solitary branch of the Indo-European language family, and it is spoken in Greece and Cyprus. Many words in mythology, science and philosophy have their origins in Greek, but of course the Greeks also talk about food, the weather, politics, music, love and everything else in life! This is also what you can expect in the Greek lessons at Taalhuis Amsterdam.
In the first course (A1.1) you will learn the alphabet and you will probably find that it is less mysterious than it looks. You will be introduced to the Greek cases and the beautiful verbs and structures. In the A2, B1, B2 and C1 courses, you will build your language skills step by step (σιγά σιγά) to be able to talk, read and write about all kinds of topics.
New courses for all levels will start again in January! You can find the schedule below.
Do you already speak some Greek and are you interested in joining an ongoing course, would you like some help defining your level or do you have other questions? Please contact us at email@example.com or check our FAQ’s!
Our Greek courses are taught in small groups, allowing you to improve your language skills quickly. We offer Greek lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced, from A1 to C2.
In class, both teachers and students speak Greek as much as possible and develop your speaking skills – obviously paying attention to correct grammar and vocabulary. Our teachers speak in the target language as much as possible – even from the very beginning – and encourage you to do the same. At Taalhuis, you will be taught by experienced teachers whose mother tongue is Greek.
Although a textbook is used during lessons, this does not mean that all lessons are taught in the same way. Of course, you will also dive into the culture and customs with our Greek teachers and learn to understand Greek songs about love (αγάπη) and the beauty (ομορφιά) of Greece.
Are you all motivated to learn Greek now? Most of our courses (1 lesson per week) start in September, January and April.
