Course Overview


Greek Level 8 is an Elementary Greek course for students who are already in the process of learning Greek. Greek Level 8 requires that you have previously studied Greek Level 7 or a course of at least 84 class hours. If you’re unsure of your level, then check our level chart.

Our Greek language classes take place at our school in Covent Garden with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. Evening language classes at IH London are dynamic and interactive as the emphasis is on spoken communication, which is achieved through lots of group work and role-plays. At the same time, there is systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, so that you can improve on all aspects of the language. Your teacher speaks in the target language throughout, so that you can refine your comprehension and listening skills.
