Hi, I'm Danae!
Let me say I admire you for learning a new alphabet and finding your way in this very unique language!
I write my blog posts with you in mind, the motivated learner who just needs a helping hand with Greek.
Apart from blogging, I love creating materials you can use to learn Greek for free!
I teach students with a passion for Greek.
I offer private Greek lessons online to a small number of awesome learners, who want to learn at their own pace and achieve their specific goals.
I occasionally offer Greek classes online for small groups for adults.
Locally, I also offer the only Greek class for very young children in Toronto, where we have tons of fun learning Greek interactively.
Teaching Greek as a Second or Foreign Language was what I wanted to do ever since I was a student in the Greek Language & Education Department in Greece.
I started teaching Greek as a Second Language in 2003 in Greece and after studying about languages and multilingualism for a few years in France, I came back to Athens to follow my passion. In 2012 I got my EUROLTA certification for second language teachers.
I'm a language learner myself; I speak English, français and some español. I also learn Nederlands! (My next language? Maybe Italian? Or Russian...?)
Since 2012, I live in Toronto where I earned my Master's in Second Language Education.
So, welcome - καλωσήρθατε!
