6 reasons why you should learn Greek as an adult

It's all Greek to me! Funny how this saying came to be an idiom in English to mean something that a speaker found difficult or impossible to understand... If only they learnt Greek as an adult they probably would not be as frustrated. 

 

Here are 6 reasons why you should learn Greek as an adult.   




Family and friends!  

Stay connected with your Greek heritage and culture and be able to communicate with family and friends locally, around the world and in Greece.

Holidays! 

Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world attracting over 32 million people a year!  Most Greeks are fluent in English but speaking the mother language makes your holidays more memorable with the locals.


Science, Medicine, Law, Biology ...

Over 90% of the terminology in humanities and sciences is Greek. If you are working or studying in any of these fields you will find it easier if you learn Greek.


One language that influences the world

Greek is one of the oldest languages on Earth and has influenced the evolution of many languages around the world. About 35% of the English vocabulary is derived from the Greek language and Modern Greek is the continuity of the Ancient Greek language. Awesome, yes? 


History and culture that is alive and thriving

Greek history and culture are rooted in the ancient fabric that humankind evolved from. Even in modern times, Greek still plays a heavy influence on our everyday lives. Are you a fan of Game of Thrones? Perhaps you should check out the original epics from Homer that heavily influenced this modern-day drama.

The people, culture and food is amazing  

Learning a language is mostly about understanding a culture. When you learn Greek, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of the Greek people, our food, music, poetry, and literature.
