Greek Lessons for Seniors and Beginners
Greek is an ancient language, having the longest documented history of any Indo-European language, spanning at least 3,400 years of written records. Although today’s Greek has been simplified, much of the grammatical and syntactical rules that applied in ancient times still applies today. Greek is not a widely spoken language. In fact, there are only about 13 million speakers worldwide, with the vast majority of those living in Greece or Cyprus. Even though thousands of English words stem from the Greek language, it is considered to be one of the hardest languages for native English speakers to learn.

It’s never too late to start learning to speak Greek. In fact, learning a second language can be especially beneficial for seniors. Research has shown that learning a second language can decrease the risk of developing dementia and improve social skills.

Whether you are completely new to Greek, wanting to explore your Greek roots, or simply want to do some brushing up on the Greek language, there’s no better time to get started than now.
