Why Celebrate International Greek Language Day!


On February 9th, the whole world celebrates Greek - the language that shaped the modern world through democracy, science, ethics, philosophy, humanism, and the arts! And for us, it’s an occasion to celebrate our heritage; a celebration to honor this treasure within us, that acts like a key to unlocking a world of stories, traditions, and a deep understanding of our roots.

Spoken for more than 3,000 years, Greek is the world’s oldest recorded living language. We are honored to be part of this legacy by passing our wonderful Greek language to the next generation!
