Adult classes will be held remotely on Thursdays from 6:15-7:15pm.  These classes are for students who have begun the program and have some experience with the Greek language.

Philosophy of our Program

Our Greek School program focuses on listening, speaking, reading, and writing.  After completing our program, our goal is for our students to:

  • Read and understand passages of texts

  • Engage in conversations about themselves (age, grade, interests)

  • Develop fluency in the Greek language

  • Write a letter to a family member or friend

  • Write about something that is important to them (favorite food, holiday, movie, sport, etc)

  • Learn about important landmarks in Greece

  • Understand important holidays and customs in Greece and how we celebrate them in the United States

  • Participate in cultural events (OXI day, March 25th, etc)

Students may have the opportunity to take the Comprehensive Exam in Modern Greek after all levels have been successfully completed. Students must be at least thirteen years old in order to take the exam and, in some instances, it provides foreign language credit at the high school level (it was formerly the NYS Regents Exam). 

The Assumption Church Afternoon Greek School follows all guidelines set by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and is committed to providing an excellent education in all aspects of the Greek language. We will continue with the curriculum and series of books from Papaloizos Publications and supplement with materials published by the Department of Greek Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. 

Enrollment

Students should be in the first grade of their regular school to enter the Beginner 1 Class.  Occasionally,  we have students join us at another level and we will accommodate them accordingly based on their individual ability and needs.
