Greek Language Courses for Third Country Nationals

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 teacher’s role is significant for the project’s successful implementation. For this reason a special focus was placed on the continuous support of teachers during the implementation of the project. An area of support is related to the development of supporting material, which can be used during the Greek language courses. Notably, the material and lessons that were produced are being edited BY a scientific team involving academics and scholars with experience in developing educational programs and teaching the Greek as a second / foreign language to young pupils.

The digital platform offers a variety of online games which were designed and developed by taking into account pedagogical approaches that are suitable for language teaching programs and are free to use. They can be used during language courses, by teachers and by students themselves. In addition, they can support extracurricular activities, since they allow students to have fun and learn through playing.
