How do I get high school credit?
If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird® course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird® course is complete. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!

COURSES FOR CREDIT
Accredited high school Greek courses with a private instructor at your pace and convenience.
Students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the target language. Students develop their Greek proficiency through extensive, spontaneous interaction with a native speaker in the language.
Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, videos, Internet research and by reading authentic materials written in the target language.
TUTORING & TEST PREP
Students receive private, one-to-one, live tutoring sessions geared toward reiterating concepts covered in their school classroom.
Tutors address any difficulties students may be having and help with homework and test preparation. Regularly scheduled lessons are recommended, rather than just for “emergency” situations. It’s best if the student consistently builds skills as well as a personal relationship with their tutor.
The lessons can also be geared toward helping students prepare for exams, including but not limited to: SAT Subject Tests, AP and fluency exams.
This is live, one-to-one communicative Greek lessons to cover elementary and intermediate grammatical structures of the Greek language, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations with a native speaker.
These lessons are designed to help students develop and mature foundational communicative skills to prepare them for everyday conversations in Greek. In addition, the student will master their fluency through the stylized nature of the course. Conversation lessons are open to students of all ages.

Our approach to education is personal, dynamic.
Innovative learning activities, unique assessments, and student directed projects engage students. Instructors take notes during each session to share with students and evaluate students over time based on personal progress. We don’t believe in timed exams. We do believe in giving students the opportunity to present what they have learned in a format and environment in which they are comfortable. Final projects are presented to the instructor during the final session of the course along with any required written components.
Why Choose an Online High School Language Program?
Enrolling your student in a LanguageBird course offers greater freedom and flexibility for their learning than what is typically found in a traditional brick-and-mortar high school environment. All of our faculty are experienced instructors in the field of education, not just native speakers. Our trained, experienced teachers love to work with high school students. Students meet with the same teacher building a relationship and skills. Students use our courses to make more room in their daily school schedule, to get ahead, make-up a class or study a language not offered at their school.
We provide students with the most personalized, one-to-one, learning experience.

Is Greek a Hard Language to Learn?
One of the first things that comes to people’s minds when it comes to online Greek classes is that it is a difficult language to understand. But what if we told you that, as a native English speaker, you are already speaking some Greek yourself? Around 25% of the English vocabulary has an origin in the Greek language. Common use words like ‘dinosaur’, ‘phobia’, ‘planet’ or even ‘music’ have their roots in this fascinating language. So even though Greek is a complex language (which one isn’t?), you’re probably more familiar with it than you think. And going back to the roots of those words you already know not only can help you understand Greek but are also a way to understand the deeper meaning behind those words in English (aside from being a quite curious and even entertaining thing to do!).
How Are Online Greek Classes Taught at LanguageBird?
At LanguageBird, we offer a culturally-immersive experience in which our students learn not only the technicalities of languages but also the beauty and diversity of their countries of origin. They interact face-to-face with native speaking tutors who transmit knowledge in their languages, uses and costumes. So at the end, not only does your child understand the language per se, but also how to successfully communicate with people in those cultures. This learning method also comes with access to multiple learning tools: our resource library,‘The Nest’ videos, and the advantage of scheduling their online language classes to learn at their own pace.
Why Should my Child Learn Greek?
Many of the words we use every day have their roots in the Greek language. People working in fields like medicine, math, chemistry, astronomy or philosophy are especially familiar with greek-rooted terms. So taking online Greek classes while attending school can be an advantage at the moment of following those careers after graduation. Religious studies or theology are also fascinating careers in which it is required to learn Greek as well as other ancient languages like Latin or Arabic.
Aside from the academic goals, learning Greek can also be beneficial in your child’s personal life. Considering that 0.4 percent of the current population of the United States has Greek ancestry, learning the language can be either a great way to connect with such ancestry or to friends and even significant others with Greek roots. Not to mention the benefits at the moment of travelling to one of the most beautiful, unique, and historically-rich countries in Europe.

An Online Greek Tutor Lets Students Learn on their Time.
The life of high school students is actually a full-time job. Between attending classes, studying, participating in sports, partaking in other extra curricular activities like playing an instrument or participating on the debate team, and doing volunteer work (many do), there are also family obligations that play into life. This means a window of time to meet with an online Greek tutor can be minimal, and this is why high school students need an online Greek tutor who will teach them, on their time, whether that is at 6AM, 10PM or on weekends. When you invest in a high-quality online Greek tutor, you get the freedom of learning at your convenience.
