The study of Modern Greek Language and Culture provides the individual with the key to understanding the importance of the hellenic tradition for the European intellectual development.
Hellenism is Europe's cultural heritage: it shares the literary, philosophical, aesthetic and scientific masterpieces of a remarkable civilisation with an intellectual continuity of 3000 years.
This heritage defines European ethos, its origins, and its multi-dimensional development, collectively and individually around the world.
