Maria Gkeme, Teacher
I hold a BA in Greek Philology and an MA in Applied Linguistics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. My studies engaged me into teaching Greek as a Second/Foreigh language, but also into applying new technologies on the learning procedure. Creating content for this LMS course was my part in trying to make grammar more approachable and comprehensible to Greek language learners. I hope I did it!
