Greek Lessons OnLine is a Greek school delivering live online lessons to students of all ages from all over the world. Its founders, Stella Bompotsiari Vri and Pavlos Ksinas, started working on this project in 2006. “Back then seemed like a dream, now I know, dreams come true” Stella says.
…engagement and interaction are key elements, making students active and productive not only during class but also between classes.
Classes are unique in flexibility, approach and accessibility. Classroom learning is highly effective without interruptions, allowing students to progress in their learning. Lessons are live streamed while students can access the cloud-based library at any time. Therefore, engagement and interaction are key elements, making students active and productive not only in class but also between classes. Also, having a Greek class from the comfort of your home without commuting, gives parents and students time to pursue other interests.
“I am very proud to manage a school offering job opportunities to teachers in Greece”
Greek LOL offers a fully interactive Greek language education, delivered by an expert faculty, holding Universities degrees in teaching with a specialization in greek language. As Stella mentions, “Teaching is an enormously attractive and creative career. However, due to high unemployment rates most greek teachers pursue different careers. So today, I am very proud to manage a school offering job opportunities to teachers who are in Greece and would probably be unemployed”. Also, all teachers are based in Greece, so each time you have a lesson with Greek LOL your teachers connects you directly to the greek life, to the greek reality!
Most kids are very shy to speak Greek at the beginning but as lessons go by they become very eager to speak. In our online celebrations our students present the event in Greek!
The best way for kids to learn is by making the learning materials a field for them to play with, and this is exactly what our teachers are focusing on. Having a good material helps a lot but the key to effective learning relies on the teaching method. We have seen our kids advancing in their Greek a lot, understanding, writing and mainly becoming more confident speakers. Most kids are very shy to speak Greek at the beginning but as lessons go by they get more confident and eager to speak. In our online celebrations our students present the event in Greek! Greek LOL is a leader in offering greek language courses to kids while more than 60% of our Greek LOL students are between 6-14 years old.
Students can prepare for the Ellinomatheia Exams, recognized worldwide.
After our students’ successful results of Ellinomatheia Exams in May 2017, we have more than 20 Exam preparation classes for the Certificate of Attainment in Greek. Students who obtain the Ellinomatheia Certification are recognized worldwide for their Greek language qualifications, which can be used to study in universities in Greece, Europe and the USA.
Our evaluation methods have been designed to determine student strengths and weaknesses and influence the learning process. Multiple choice, multiple selection, short answer, essay writing, true or false, recorded responses, show your work and more are only some of the exercises we use along with videos and audios to make students’ assessment a constructive and fun part of the learning process.
