Understanding spoken Greek and actually speaking is more challenging than written language for a lot of learners. That’s why many of our students often ask for ways to help them improve their listening and speaking skills in Greek. And the answer is always the same… You need to hear more of it. How can somebody hear more Greek if they don’t live in a Greek-speaking country, like the majority of our students? Well, the secret ingredient that is not that secret to be honest is Greek films…
Greek movies help promote Hellenic culture and the Greek language to people everywhere. If you had never considered it, maybe you should because according to many language experts and educators, watching movies in Greek can be this great addition to your Greek lessons that you were looking for. The factor that can actually make a difference.
Watching Greek movies can help with a learner’s motivation and enthusiasm levels at the early stages of learning Greek. Movies help create excitement about the new language which motivates learners to want to hear and read more of it. And as you all know hearing and reading more of it is what will eventually improve your oral communication, too.
