The Cyprus Pedagogical Institute, in collaboration with, CARDET and INNOVADE offer FREE Greek Language courses for Third Country Nationals. The project aims to support the integration process of Third Country Nationals in the Cypriot society by providing them the opportunity to learn the Greek language and improve the social inclusion capacity.
The project aims to provide Greek language courses at two different levels (the basic and the intermediate level). The courses will be held in Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca, Pafos. It is expected that more than 250 Third Country Nationals will successfully attend the courses and at least 180 people will complete them.
Why to learn Greek?
Learning Greek will help you improve your communication skills and socialize with other people. You will be able to actively engage in everyday activities and better understand the culture of Cyprus. The Greek language will also enhance your chances of entering the labor market. Learning Greek will definitely help you participate in the civic, cultural and social affairs of Cyprus.

Course Level options
