Summer Institute: Introduction to Modern Greek and Intermediate/Advanced Modern Greek

The Princeton Athens Center will offer two non-credit, intensive courses in Modern Greek Language this summer. One will be an Introduction to the language, for those with little or no exposure or experience with Modern Greek; and the second will be at the Intermediate/Advanced level, for students who already have completed successfully at least one course (or its equivalent) in Modern Greek, either at Princeton or elsewhere.

Classes will be complemented by site and museum visits, walking tours, and other activities that take advantage of the rich cultural resources of Athens and provide opportunities for learning Modern Greek in context.

Dates: June 5 – June 30, 2023   Classes: Monday-Friday, 3 hours/day

Non-credit. No tuition will be charged.

All sessions will be held at the Princeton Athens Center, in-person (no zoom option).


Princeton undergraduate and graduate students.
