Greek Language Program

The Greek Language Program rests at the heart of the Centre’s mandate to ensure the continued relevance of the Greek language in an international context. The Program offers a suite of four online courses, through the Odysseas Greek Language Tutor, administered by a dedicated team of language instructors on secondment from the Greek Ministry of Culture, Education, and Religious Affairs. The Centre also serves an official Examination Centre for the Certificate of Attainment in Greek, servicing the Lower Mainland of British Columbia and Western Canada.

In addition, the Program has collaborated with SFU’s Faculty of Education, in cooperation with the Greek Ministry of Culture, Education, and Religious Affairs to offer the first online Graduate Certificate in Curriculum and Instruction for Teaching Modern Greek. This innovative, one-year program is delivered exclusively online and provides teachers with a firm grounding in foundational principles and the latest pedagogical tools in order to design effective curricula and meet proposed educational outcomes.
