GREEK TALK is an educational "organization" that provides educational services, publishes a series of books for learning the Greek language and culture, and creates and offers rich educational teaching material in video format.

Who is it for?

We cater to adult philhellenes with available time, who have chosen to learn Greek for family reasons but mainly for their own personal enrichment and pleasure. The lessons target an audience interested not only in learning the Greek language but also in its customs and traditions, appealing to those interested in Greek culture.

Is the platform difficult to navigate?

No, the platform has been designed to be very user-friendly and straightforward. All you need is your email and the password you provide in our system (are these needed correctly?). Everything else is simple navigation through the menu with a click.

Why choose to learn Greek at GREEK TALK?

The main idea is "Learn Greece," not just "Learn Greek". At GREEK TALK, you don't just learn to speak Greek & the structure of the language to communicate in Greek. You also learn our way of thinking, our traditions and customs, our food, our environment, literary lessons/ancient Greek, etc. Our team has over 14 years of experience and we know how to transfer this love to you – our students. 

Can I see what a lesson is like?

Certainly! You can send an expression of interest to [email address], and we schedule a phone or online meeting.

Why are the lessons conducted in Greek?

The lessons are conducted exclusively in Greek (in an authentic environment with authentic voices) because this way the target language appears natural both on and off the screen. Students are exposed to the "foreign"/"Greek" reality exactly as it is (Subtitles are available).

How can I pay?

Currently, we offer two convenient payment options: bank transfer and credit card. You can choose the method that suits you best for seamless transactions. For further assistance or inquiries regarding payment, feel free to reach out to our support team.

Can I get a trial class?

While we do not offer free trials, we provide free previews of our educational material. These previews give you a glimpse into the quality and style of our classes, helping you make an informed decision before committing. If you have any specific questions or would like more information about our books, please don't hesitate to contact us.
