Greek

Greek Language and Cultural Studies:

 

Learning a second language in elementary school is almost second nature to children. More importantly, being able to communicate and function in Greek, the language that is the basis for math, science, English, history, literature, and other academic subjects, will enable students to excel throughout school, college, and future professions.

Learning Greek significantly impacts a child’s academic success in elementary, secondary, and college-level learning environments. Knowledge of Greek root-words and derivitives also benefit learners in the business world. Why else do we teach Greek?

  • Base language of all Western European languages and serves as a springboard to other languages
  • Sharpens the mind by enhancing reading ability and mathematical computation

Being able to communicate and function in Greek, the language that is the basis for math, science, astronomy, literature, and other academic subjects, will enable students to excel throughout school, college, and future professions.

Plato Academy and Superior Schools are proud of the Greek department. Our Greek teachers are giving their heart and soul every day to help students to love and understand the Greek language and culture. Plato Academy students celebrate annually the October 28 “OXI” day, the March 25th Greek independence day, including participation in the Greek independence annual parade taking place in the City of Tarpon Springs.

Other Greek related events include a Greek themed holiday, an annual Olympic Games theme and related festivities. Also the 7th and 8th students are required to take more intensive Greek language requirements also satisfying the High school foreign language requirements.

The study of Greek takes time and commitment, but the rewards are great enough to merit such an investment!!
