Greek Language & Culture
SAE has established Regional Committees with the purpose of supporting and promoting the Greek Language. SAE also supports, promotes and participates in initiatives aimed at a meaningful dialogue that will lead to conclusions on the preservation of the Greek language abroad.
Close cooperation has been forged with the Greek ministry of education. The SAE board is represented in the Expatriate Greeks and Intercultural Education Institute Committee established to support the Greek Studies Departments in institutions of higher learning.
An online Greek language teaching programme using new technologies was developed at the initiative of the then Alternate President and current president Stefanos P. Tamvakis. “Speak Greek – Live Greek” is a Greek language e-learning programme based on the way mother tongue is being taught. It is aimed at the Greeks abroad who wish to improve their language skills as well as to foreigners wishing to learn Greek.
