Greek Language Proficiency

Recognized Greek Language Proficiency Exams

Every May, the Centre for Greek Language, Ministry of Education of Greece, organizes worldwide certification exams in Greek Language Proficiency. These exams are open to all candidates regardless of ethnic background, who are learning Greek as a second or foreign language. Successful candidates are awarded with an official certificate of proficiency in Greek, which they receive every January at the GCT’s Three Hierarchs Awards Ceremony. We highly recommend that you register to a Paideia designated Greek language program to successfully prepare for the Ellinomatheia exams. Paideia is a comprehensive Greek Language program based on the principles and demands of the Ellinomatheia exams. Currently, you can find Paideia schools in Toronto, Ottawa and St. Catharines Ontario.
