The full version of the Greek language e-learning platform ‘StaEllinika‘ was launched on October 6, 2020, after a successful beta released in April.

The StaEllenika program covers topics ranging from basic Greek grammar and spelling, to Greek mythology and historical events such as Greek Independence Day.

The final version was presented on Tuesday by the Secretary General for Public Diplomacy & Greeks Abroad of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ioannis Chrysoulakis.

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis participated in a video conference in June with Greek children all over the world, including children of Greek heritage in Australia. The conference sealed the success of the digital learning platform, which is being used to a high frequency among the Greek Diaspora.

Since its beta release, it has gained some 13,000 subscribers from 110 different countries, including Australia.

“It is very important for me, Your Excellency, to be able to have a tool for learning the Greek language, which uses the internet, possesses a digital infrastructure, is easy to use, but also exploits the richness of Greek history and mythology to make the learning of Greek language exciting and enjoyable,” Mitsotakis said a few months ago.

In the full edition of StaEllinika gives parents, teachers and learners access to courses that include Beginners Greek for Ages 4+, Beginners Greek for Ages 6+, Beginners Greek for Ages 9+, Beginners Greek for Teens and Adults (Ages 13+), as well as History and Greek Mythology.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Costas Vlasis said that due to the special conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, “the fact that children and young people of the Greek Diaspora have the opportunity to travel for free from their home computer, mobile phone or their tablet to the wonderful world of the Greek language, Greek mythology and culture is even more valuable.”
