It is planned that this course will be running online, using Teams, for the Autumn Term. This may change, depending on Government guidelines.

This course is for learners who have already completed one year of study. You should have some confidence in your spoken Greek and a basic grasp of the fundamentals of Greek grammar. The main aim of the course is to increase your independence in understanding and making yourself understood in a wider range of everyday situations.

This course is suitable for those you who have completed Greek Beginners or have studied the language for about 70 hours. The main topics are designed for those of you who wish to converse more in the language when visiting the country as well as allowing for some appreciation of the culture of the Greek people.

By the end of this course you will be able to:
- talk about where you live and give a small description of your house
- use prepositions to say where things are in a house
- get information about a hotel and book accommodation when on holidays
- make a complaint
- write a postcard/email to talk about holidays
- talk about your future plans
- talk about your past actions
- talk about a past holiday
- describe people
- compare people, places and objects

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options.
