A journey in cities throughout the world, where the Greek element used to exist, or still exists, cities which welcomed Greek immigrants and became centers for the Greek diaspora or were, at some point, Greek settlements. This is“Travel to Greece III”, in which cultural images and historical facts are combined with useful communicational situations, with complex grammatical phenomena and with a more demanding vocabulary.
“Travel to Greece III” has been designed for advanced students of the Greek language (C1 – C2 level) and it includes cities, countries, continents, as well as famous Greek characteristics, based on the Greek alphabet. The book begins with Alexandria (Αλεξάνδρεια) and ends with Oceania (Ωκεανία), while chapters such as The sea and Entertainment are interjected, in order to familiarize students and help them incorporate in the cultural reality of the native speakers.
“Travel to Greece III” was part of the Socrates Programme by the European Commission. It was developed by a team of Educational Organizations (University of Murcia – Spain, University of Messina – Italy, ELBEA company –Bulgaria, and ELEA Computer Systems for the digitization process of the educational material) and was coordinated by the Hellenic language school “Alexander the Great”, which is part of the British-Hellenic College in Athens.
