StaEllinika launches Greek language learning tools for Spanish and Portuguese speakers

Nov 20, 2022
StaEllinika, an initiative for young Greek language learners by Simon Fraser University (SFU) and the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is expanding its offerings to reach new audiences around the world, including in South America.

The interactive language-learning resources it provides are now available to speakers of Spanish and Portuguese, in addition to English speakers.


Start learning Greek with StaEllinika


Story-driven and game-based language courses, designed to engage everyone in the Greek diaspora from preschoolers to teenagers to adults, form the basis of StaEllinika. These were developed through Rebooting the Greek Language, a project of the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies and the SNF New Media Lab at SFU, with support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).


A collaborative effort of the SNF Center for Hellenic Studies and the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad at the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the platform is built to reach heritage learners around the world at home through independent study and through school curricula, including as part of another SNF grant for Greek education.
