Invitation to Register for the 2018 CGL Examinations

All interested persons are now invited to register for this year's Centre for the Greek Language (CGL) Examinations to be held in May at St. Andrew's Grammar (officially-recognised CGL Examination Centre).

Prospective candidates of Greek and also non-Greek background are invited to test their written and spoken Greek language competency skills through these annual examinations. Successful candidates will be issued with a Certificate of Attainment in Greek from Greece's Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs, and the Centre for the Greek Language: Division for the Support and Promotion of the Greek Language (Thessaloniki, Greece).

There are 7 levels on offer, catering to a full spectrum of Greek language competencies. These include a level for children aged 8-12 years old (children who are over 8 years and below 12 years old on the 31st of May, 2018); a level for beginner adolescents and adults, through to a level for persons with excellent knowledge of the Greek language. Candidates younger than 16 are strongly advised to avoid taking the examinations for levels B2, C1 and C2 as the examination content for these levels may require general knowledge and experience beyond their years.
