LANGUAGE Transfer is launching the Cyprus project with the first of a series of free Greek and Turkish workshops. The first free Greek workshop (Introduction to Greek) will be held at the Cyprus Community Media Centre – CCMC on Saturday, May 10.
The project will offer free workshops and downloadable audio courses in Greek, Turkish and the Cypriot dialects, as well as facilitating language exchange activities on the island.
“In order to bring Cypriots together to practice their languages,” it said in an announcement, adding that Language Transfer has been using what it calls the ‘Thinking Method’ since 2011.
“The Thinking Method completely challenges our relationship with learning and information and needs to be experienced to be believed,” said Katherine Kotsireas, a volunteer at the project.
The method teaches conversational ability in a new language in record time – in a matter of hours, she said.
“The Cyprus project is just launching and needs to grow from here, more volunteers are still needed to be trained in the methodology to give free Greek and Turkish workshops and to participate in language exchange facilitation,” she added.
“It also needs volunteers for creative dissemination to help the project reach across the island.”
