- Greek Language
- Greek culture
To all those interested in high quality learning in the Greek language and culture, we would like to announce our plan to start our lessons online for the first part of the school year. Recognizing the anxiety around the unknown trajectory of Covid 19 this fall, we had to do our part to keep our population safe and comfortable while learning!

We welcome everyone with open arms to start or continue their journey in learning Greek!
Our goal is to provide tailored instruction to the level and ability of each of our students in a setting that promotes respect to the student and parent, with the most dedicated and talented instructors. We do this through small group instruction with an emphasis on the acquisition of the Greek language and culture.
Parent and Tot: The is a unique addition and the first of its kind in Edmonton. Toddlers from 1-3 are encouraged to attend this 30 minute weekly program with their parents which is based on songs with movement, interactive story telling and activities promoting receptive and expressive language development.
Preschool: Our preschool program is based on interactive learning provided by an early childhood educator from Greece.
Elementary (K-6): Children are taught with communicative approaches and we welcome all levels of learners- which are much more readily accommodated with the small group instruction we offer.
Junior High/High School: Our teens are encouraged to attend Greek lessons for many reasons. At this age, their maturity will do wonders to advance their appreciation of the language and culture. However, they can also start earning credits to put towards their high school diploma. An excellent grade in Greek 15/25 or 35 can also be used toward a scholarship or university entrance application! Beginners are welcome!
Beginner Adults: Adults have various motivations for learning Greek – travel, communicating with a spouse, curiosity, university studies. Whatever your interest, we have an interactive program using the most current learning tools in learning Greek as a second language.
Advanced Adults: Adults that have completed the beginner course or who have previous experience with Greek are encouraged to take this class. This is also appropriate for Greek Canadian adults need a refresher in the language to reconnect with their roots and improve their language skills.
