What we're about

Our group welcomes students/learners of Greek and their friends and family. We organise conversation classes at least once per month in order to practise our speaking and listening skils and identify gaps in our language learning. These meet-ups may last for one hour, are open to people with some knowledge of Greek, and take place at a coffee shop in central Manchester to suit everyone.

From September 2018 we will be also organising mid-week and Saturday language classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced learners. Join us to learn Greek or improve your existing knowledge, whether for holidays, business or retirement plans, but please observe other people's right to equality and respect. We hope to see you soon!

Launch of Greek classes for Autumn/Winter (all levels)

We are launching our new language classes for Autumn 2019 , on Sunday 1st September 2019 at 10:00am until 12:00pm. Join us at Ziferblat Coffee shop, Northern Quarter, to take part in the launch, meet like-minded people and enjoy brunch. You will have the opportunity to get information about the new classes and to discuss your individual circumstances. This is the time to assess your level of learning so far and see where you wish to go next: whether you wish to sharpen your existing skills or begin learning a new language, you will be able to share your vision and decide which class suits you best. It would be ideal, if you brought learning materials you have used before, and bear in mind that you may undergo a very short test for assessment purposes. The launch is free and open to all interested students. However the coffee shop charges by the minute for the time we spend there. It costs 6p per minute (normal rate is 8p per minute), which gives unlimited access to a rich self-service buffet, consisting of coffee, teas, sandwiches, yogurts, cakes and fruits (you need to prepare your own sandwiches) Please register your name upon arrival; the fee is payable upon exit. I look forward to welcoming everyone! Thank you

Greek Language Lab (beginners)

Costa Coffee

Our Greek Language Lab is designed for total beginners, who wish to learn in a small group, practising Greek in a dynamic but relaxing and friendly way. These sessions will help you acquire vocabulary, read and write with confidence and use your skills effectively in real-life situations. Teaching is book- based and hand-out guided. Learning objectives include: - learning pronunciation - learning intonation - understanding grammar and syntax - enriching vocabulary - paired activities (mini scenarios, games) & listening exercises Teaching and learning is progressive, which means that every week we build on previous learning, by teaching a new chapter of grammar and reading comprehension. As a result, regular and consistent attendance is recommended. This lab will conclude in December 2019. Students will move to the next level (intermediate) in January 2020. Investment: £7.50 per hour, which helps with continuous costs of website maintenance, venues and materials. Important information: Please contact the organiser via email preferably, before attending this meetup to discuss your requirements. Thank you Join us at our next meetup to ask questions and start learning! Thank you :)
