Beginners Greek Language Course! (Ages 9+):
Learn Greek as you embark on epic quests and discover Greek Mythology.

The theme of the level is directly related to Greek mythology, gods, heroes and monsters. The learners take the role of a Greek hero who traverses the length of ancient Greece, reliving the most popular myths and learning about the places where they took place. Introductory videos present an animated narration of various ancient Greek myths, while the learning experience travels the learner through all the major milestones of a particular myth, with the learning content corresponding to each one of them.


This is an initiative of the the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies, Simon Fraser University, in collaboration with the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad  at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
