These Greek lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival Greek - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, Greek culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular Greek examination.
These Greek Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Greek to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone Greek and e-mail Greek skills for communications as well as Survival Greek required for short visits to a country.
Those wishing to learn Greek in groups of 2 or more together (Two-to-One Greek Lessons or Small Group In-Company Greek Lessons) can sign up for our group classes. All students must be at nearly the same level of Greek proficiency, must have the same needs from the language, and must be able to study at the same time and place as the others. Bookings must be made for all students simultaneously. Listen & Learn do not propose group sizes or more than 6-8 people, but In-Company Taster Greek Lessons can occur with up to 12 people.
The Greek alphabet has been employed by Greeks since around 800BC
In a lot of respects, Modern Greek is a developed version of Ancient Greek, yet it has lost much of its complexity, including the dative case, the optative mood, the infinitive, and participles
The Greek language has evolved plenty since ancient times - Modern Greek is actually the 5th incarnation of the language
"Our native speaker qualified Greek language teachers can train you and your colleagues at your office or home at a time to suit you. Classes can be any day of the week (even weekends) in the morning."
NewarkNewark is the largest city in the State of New Jersey, and with a population of 275,000 it is also the 64th most populous city in the United States. While Newark has a 'personality' all its own, it has also benefitted greatly from its close proximity to New York City (it is only a few short miles away). Newark Airport has become a hub for international air travel, which has pumped billions of dollars into the local economy. Newark has dedicated a considerable amount of its resources to becoming more eco-friendly in the 21st Century. Several of the biggest redevelopment projects in the city are being built using environmentally sound practices and will allow for solar power and the use sustainable materials. The Hispanic and Latino populations in Newark make up almost 30% of the demographic, with double digit percentages for Asian Americans from Korea, Viet Nam and China as well. Given the short distance from Manhattan and the international make up of the citizens, Newark is one of the most useful places on the eastern seaboard to learn a new language.
