The Adult Class that is offered at Annunciation Greek School is a mixed ability, full immersion class which is taught using the Communicative Approach to Language Teaching. Thus, interaction between the students and the teacher, as well as among the students, is emphasized as the means but also the goal of study. “Active” “Student Centered” Learning is encouraged in class by means of group work and activities that relate to the students’ individual profiles and interests. By the end of the course, students will be confident users of Greek in simple conversational contexts, and will have developed intermediate reading and writing skills.
