In Modern Greek at Continuers Level, students develop their skills to communicate meaningfully. Students develop an understanding of how Modern Greek is used appropriately by using the skills of listening, speaking, viewing, reading and writing for a range of purposes in a variety of contexts.
In Modern Greek, students have opportunities to: interact with others, create texts in Modern Greek, analyse texts and examine relationships between language, culture and identity.
At Stage 1 students explore a range of topics through three themes: the Individual, the Modern Greek-speaking Communities and the Changing World. Topics covered include: Family, Relationships, World of Work, Travel and Celebrations. Students undertake an individual investigation on a cultural or social aspect or issue associated with ‘The Modern Greek-speaking Communities’ or ‘The Changing World’. Different topics are covered each semester depending on relevant events.
