Modern Greek Language Teaching Center

Welcome to the webpage of Modern Greek Language Teaching Center

The Modern Greek Language Teaching Center of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens has been functioning since the 1950s, initially with a very limited number of students. In the decades that followed the number of students increased exponentially. The Modern Greek Teaching Center is the largest of its kind in the world. Many of its graduates are today teachers of Modern Greek and Philology at Universities throughout the world, members of the diplomatic corps in their own countries, church leaders, renowned scientists, company managers, respected artists and business professionals.

The aims of the Modern Greek Teaching Center are as follows:

The teaching of Modern Greek as a second/foreign language;

The certification of level B2 Greek language knowledge for those who are interested as well as potential foreign students of Greek higher-level institutions;

The exposure of foreigners to various facets and themes of Greek culture;
