Classes run for a duration of two hours per week (extenuating circumstances may reduce or increase the hours of instruction) and are structured into composite classes which may include up to two Stages. This has been designed so that each stage continues from the previous to provide a continuous learning experience.

Early
Stage A
Some verbal expression of Greek, with no writing skills. Students will be introduced to the alphabet through simple words, sentences, numbers, colours and songs.
Early
Stage B
Students should understand and be able to write the letters of the alphabet, to have the ability to create syllables and simple sentence structure and to have the ability to say and read some basic sentences and repeat subjects learnt in Early Stage A.
Level 1 Students should have the capacity to use a range of spoken, written and other nonverbal means of expression. Must be able to communicate at the basic level, ie. Greetings, exchange festive wishes.
Level 2
Students should have strong comprehension skills and are able to analyse and produce essays with such themes as, 'Out and About', 'Celebrations' and 'This is Me'.
Level 3
At this stage students have a more developed understanding of the Greek Language and its structure. From a contextual perspective they understand the usage of nouns, adjectives and verbs. They understand and communicate issues relating to their daily routine, personal identification, and basic aspects of the Greek and Australian geography.
