Speak Greek in March is an international campaign that was founded in Melbourne, Australia to promote the speaking and awareness of the Greek language every March— which is considered “Greek Month” given the anniversary of Greek Independence Day and numerous celebrations and observances around the world.
Within the framework of the “Speak Greek in March” campaign, our partners at Greek Lessons Online are organizing an international teleconference call this Sunday, March 19th, giving people around the world who love the Greek language, an opportunity to meet, chat and participate in online language activities.
for the third consecutive year, Greek Lessons OnLine is organizing a Teleconferences with Greek students aged 14+ from all around the world.
The teleconferences will be held on Sunday, 19th of March 2017, from 11:00-12:00pm and from 19:00-20:00 (Athens local time). This year we have decided to run two different events to make it possible for more people to participate.
During the teleconferences the participants will be involved in fun language activities but we are mainly aiming to introduce and connect greek students who share the same love for the Greek language, even though they live thousands of miles apart and come from different countries.
Participation is free and there is a limited number of spots available.
Students aged 14+ from throughout the world are invited to take part.
Participants need to be able to speak basic Greek.
The process to register is simple.
All you need is a smartphone, a tablet or a computer to be involved.

The Speak Greek in March initiative started in 2015 by individuals and representatives of literary and cultural organizations from the Greek community of Melbourne, Australia. The mission is to encourage people, schools and organizations throughout the world to initiate, develop and implement activities which promote the Greek language.
The project has been gaining international momentum as more and more schools, organizations and associations throughout the world have been doing the effort to spread awareness about the importance of speaking Greek, as well as the richness of the language and importance of sustaining it abroad.
