Methods

Our goal is to provide tailored instruction to the level and ability of each of our students in a setting that promotes respect to the student and parent, with the most dedicated and talented instructors.  We do this through small group instruction with an emphasis on the acquisition of the Greek language and culture.

Our classes run every Monday from September – June. 

Class Schedules

  • Parent and Tot classes are 6:00 – 6:30 p.m and each child must have an adult caregiver present.
  • Preschool, elementary, and junior high/highschool levels are from 6:00-8:00 pm every Monday.
  • Adult classes are from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m 

Classes take place at the WECA at 6315 199 St in Edmonton. 

Parent and Tot


The is a unique addition and the first of its kind in Edmonton. Toddlers from 1-3 are encouraged to attend this 30 minute weekly program with their parents which is based on songs with movement, interactive story telling and activities promoting receptive and expressive language development. Our instructor, Efi Kouremenou, is a highly experienced elementary teacher who uses Greek as the main language of instruction in this very successful endeavor.

Preschool


Our preschool program is based on interactive learning provided by our experienced Dimitra Karagouni who is an early childhood educator from Greece.

Elementary (K-6)


Children are taught with communicative approaches and we welcome all levels of learners- which are much more readily accommodated with the small group instruction we offer.

Junior High/High School


Our teens are encouraged to attend Greek lessons for many reasons. At this age, their maturity will do wonders to advance their appreciation of the language and culture. However, they can also start earning credits to put towards their highschool diploma. An excellent grade in Greek 15/25 or 35 can also be used toward a scholarship or university entrance application! Beginners are welcome!

Beginner Adults


Adults have various motivations for learning Greek – travel, communicating with a spouse, curiosity, university studies. Whatever your interest, we have an interactive program using the most current learning tools in learning Greek as a second language. The program is overseen by our Greek language specialist, Lavredia Ditsou.

Advanced Adults


Adults that have completed the beginner course or who have previous experience with Greek are encouraged to take this class. This is also appropriate for Greek Canadian adults need a refresher in the language to reconnect with their roots and improve their language skills.

Biblical/Ancient Greek


This is an exciting addition that will be coming in the future, taught by Lavredia Ditsou
