Speak Greek 4 kids - Δημιουργικά εργαστήρια - Creative workshops


Έρευνες βεβαιώνουν ότι όσο πιο νωρίς εκτίθεται ένα παιδί σε διαφορετικές γλώσσες τόσο πιο εύκολα μαθαίνει.
Η ελληνική γλώσσα, τόσο στην γραπτή, όσο και στην προφορική της μορφή, μέσα από τα διαφορετικά γλωσσικά και γραμματικά της φαινόμενα, αποτελεί ένα ισχυρό "ακόνισμα" του μυαλού.

Προς αυτή την κατεύθυνση, το Speak Greek και το Speech Therapy UK οργανώνουν δημιουργικά εργαστήρια προώθησης της ελληνικής γλώσσας στις μικρές ηλικίες (2-5 ετών), μέσα από παιχνίδια, δραστηριότητες, διαδραστική αφήγηση ελληνικών παραμυθιών, μουσική, προ-ανάγνωση και άλλα εργαλεία εκμάθησης. Όλα τα παραπάνω είναι προσαρμοσμένα στις ηλικίες των παιδιών και στο υπάρχον επίπεδο της ελληνικής, λαμβάνοντας υπόψη το γεγονός ότι πολλά παιδιά έχουν ως βασική γλώσσα τους όχι την ελληνική, αλλά την αγγλική.

Το πρώτο δημιουργικό εργαστήριο θα πραγματοποιηθεί την Κυριακή, 26 Μαΐου 2019 από τις 12.30 έως τη 13.15, στη διεύθυνση Flat 7, Towngreen court, Holland Road, Crumpsall, Manchester, M8 4WW.

Το κόστος συμμετοχής για κάθε παιδί είναι 3 λίρες ενώ υπάρχει έκπτωση για τα αδέρφια. 

Για περισσότερες πληροφορίες και κράτηση θέσης, επικοινωνήστε μαζί μας μέσω ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου ή στο κινητό τηλέφωνο 07783156051.

Speak Greek 4 kids: Creative Workshops

Research confirms that children learn faster when they are exposed  to different linguistic environments from an early age.
The Greek language in written or spoken form sharpens the brain through its grammar and linguistic associations.

Speak Greek and  Speech Therapy UK organize the Creative workshops for children between 2 and 5 years aiming to allow them to familiarise themselves to the Greek Language via structured activities, games, storytelling, music, songs and other interactive methods. All the activities will be age appropriate and in Greek language. The fact that some children are exposed to more than one languages is considered.

The First Creative Workshop will take place on Sunday the 26th of May 2019, between 12.30 and 13.15 at Flat 7, Towngreen court, Holland Road, Crumpsall, Manchester, M8 4WW.

The cost for each child is £3 with discount for siblings. 

For more information and to book your place, please contact us via email or the mobile phone number 07783156051.

The birth of Democracy


Our support groups learned about the birth of Democracy by Cleisthenes who broke up the power of the nobility by organizing citizens into ten groups based on where they lived, rather than on their wealth. Students draw inspired by ostracism, the Ecclesia, the old Parliament House and the modern Hellenic Parliament.

Happy Greek Easter


Our support groups learned about the Greek (Orthodox) Easter which will be celebrated on Sunday, 28 April. A handout with information and pictures about customs from different places in Greece, a special recipe for homemade cookies and arts and crafts gave the opportunity to our students to explore the importance of this celebration. In the end, each student received mini chocolate eggs and a candle for the Holy Saturday (27 April).

Celebration of the Greek Revolution 1821


Our support groups learned about the Greek Revolution that started in 1821 through a handout, a Kahoot game and a filling the gaps activity for the song 'Thourios'. The importance of this Agonas (Αγώνας) is tremendous as the Kingdom of Greece was established in 1832.

Speak Greek is taking a stand against scams - Are you?



Have you received an email from a distant relative desperate to give you a huge inheritance?
Are you the winner of an imaginative lottery?
Do you have to give your details or a small amount of money to claim your gift from a prize draw?
Are you the next lucky investor of an extremely profitable investment on another planet?

Speak Greek recognising the devastating consequences, psychological and financial to the victims and the society, has proudly joined the 'Friends against Scams' initiative by the National Trading Standards ScamsTeam.

How?
All of our students will be notified about the online training that covers the most important aspects of the problem giving practical advice. Also, a live session will be held on Saturday, 30th of March 2019 at 16.00 for those who prefer learning about the initiative enjoying a brew, cookies and a discussion.

Be part of the change and take a stand against scams today!
