Why Greek Language Learning Is Becoming Popular Among Adults?

Below are some popular reasons for Greek language learning?

  • It is the language in which an alphabet is constituted for the first time.

  • It is a language of more than four thousand years of linguistic and historical development, has survived over time, undergone changes, and surprisingly continues to be used to this day. Mathematically it is a language considered stable. It is the most spoken ancient language today in the entire globe.

  • It is the mother tongue or at least the base language of all the languages of the earth in terms of name-words attributed to abstract and theoretical ideas.

  • It is the language-monument of an unknown (anti-Flood) era in history, as demonstrated mathematically in the innumerability of his literary production until today. Monuments that are saved today (Homer), contain an enormous wealth of vocabulary, knowledge, and ideas, whose creation presupposes a culture that was promoted and lasted many millennia.

  • In Greek, one of the most important and first grammars is written: The Techne Grammatiké de Dionisio de Thrace, who provides fundamental concepts for the study of languages (accent, moment or tense, syllable, word, name, verb, conjugation, participle, article, antonymy, preposition, adverb, link or conjunctions, etc.)

  • It is a language that is spoken and written like all languages of the world. It has a communicative purpose.

  • The sounds of Greek, its pronunciation, are very similar to those of Spanish, so it does not imply a greater effort like most languages.

  • Knowledge of Greek facilitates the understanding and learning of Indo-European and even non-Indo-European languages, such as Asian languages, in which adapted Hellenic words coexist.

  • When you speak, you use Greek.

  • Expand your vocabulary and increase your knowledge about any subject or area of study. It allows you to identify concepts and ideas of your environment from its essence.

  • You can approach mythology, history, philosophy, letters, thought, founders of our culture, in their original language and discover new ideas, which no author has mentioned, and even elucidate false ideas or concepts.

  • It is not a scholarly language. It is a communicative and conventional language like all.

  • It is not an ancient language. It is a current language whose historical richness and linguistic beauty are similar to those of Spanish.

  • The Greek language is the oldest and the most written tradition of Western languages. In its almost three thousand years of documented history, it has been acquiring exceptional linguistic wealth in all fields of human activity: thought, science, medicine, economics, art, etc. The evolution that it has experienced throughout its long history has not changed the elementary features that identify it as such since Antiquity.

  • Several peoples (Latin, Slavic and Middle Eastern, etc.), who adopted or adapted their alphabet, literature, religion, history, science, law, philosophy, and art, have benefited directly or indirectly from their wealth and prestige. Much of the vocabulary of contemporary languages of all these branches is due to linguistic loans taken from Greek.

  • Greek is a logical language in its structure and operation, balanced, sound, and of enormous communicative possibilities. Like classical Greek and Latin, it can serve as an instrumental language for understanding current European languages. Speaking any current language, you also use Greek. If you know it, it will be easier for you to understand and know the meaning and etymology of a good part of the vocabulary of the other language.

  • It is one of the official languages of the European Union and official language of Greece and Cyprus, which have enormous cultural, commercial and tourist potential. Greek language learning has resulted in a rich literature represented by great authors, including two Nobel Prizes for Literature.

  • In the commercial field, it constitutes the main base of operations for the Eastern Mediterranean and Southeast Europe, but the great wealth of the Greek world is in the sea.
