Greek language lessons
They take place from Monday to Friday from 15.00 to 21.00 in Kyclos. Every student takes daily lessons that last from 1 to 3 hours. There are 3 learning levels. Beginners, intermediate, advanced. The lessons are open to people who are illiterate in their mother tongue.
After the successful completion of the lessons and a consistent learning course, students can participate in the official Greek Language exams of the General Secretariat for Lifelong Education.
English language lessons
They are held twice a week for each student. The only condition for participation is that the students have attended the lessons of Greek language at Kyclos and have reached intermediate level.

Classes last a total of 15 hours per month and take place inside and outside Kyclos premises e.g. in museums and neighborhoods.
Supporting school students

Mother tongue lessons
They are addressed only to illiterate Farsi speaking people. Prerequisite for participation is to have attended the Greek courses of Kyclos and to have passed the beginners’ level. The syllabus is adapted according to the needs of the participants.
The methodology that governs all non-formal education in Kyclos is designed so that the lessons:
are taught from the advanced to the beginners through an experiential way
are taught from the students' mother tongue
are suitable for people who are illiterate
make use of everyone's cultural background
are in line with everyone's learning pace. Kyclos classes are constantly evaluated and adjusted so that each student is always at a level that suits him/her and can follow.
Through this methodology intercultural two-way social integration is achieved in a smooth way and based on equity.
