Adult Courses & Dance

At the Greek School of Coventry, we believe that learning never ends, which is why it is never too late to start learning a new language! Our adult students follow a fun, easy to learn curriculum specifically tailored to their level and needs so why not join them? We also offer Greek dance lessons for all levels, so that you can learn to speak Greek and dance too!

Adult Greek Language Lessons

The Greek language is steeped in rich history, with roots as far back as the thirteenth century BCE through the Mycenaean civilisation. It holds an important place in the histories of Europe, with the longest documented history of any other language of the Indo-European family of languages and 34 centuries of written records, so surely, this is a huge legacy for all of modern civilisation to keep and to enrich!

Beautifully melodic with poetic meaning, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to learn, especially as so many Greek words have been widely used in other languages, in fields such as mathematics, astronomy and philosophy. Greek word elements in common with Latin words are the foundation of the scientific and technical modern vocabulary.

Our curriculum includes conversational Greek, invaluable for those holidays in Greece and the Greek Islands.

At The Greek School of Coventry, adult Greek language lessons are available at beginners and intermediate levels. Lessons will cover Speaking/communicating in Greek, Greek grammar, reading, writing and also culture and civilisation.

All our teachers are qualified to teach Greek, with experience in teaching Greek as a foreign language. Lessons operate on a pay as you go basis at £25 per lesson and the times and durations for the different levels are as follows.
