February 9, 2021, has been declared International Greek Language Day in hopes of sparking interest in the language worldwide. The date coincides with Commemoration Day of Greece’s national poet, Dionysios Solomos, whose lyrics are featured in the Greek National Anthem. The Hellenic language has been declared as “an international language” by UNESCO and Greece. Video and zoom presentations have been televised on the internet.

Dr. Isaak Papadopoulos, Dr. John G. Siolas, educators from Greece and Cyprus at the Center of Greek Language in Larissa, Greece helped make this day important to primary students through the internet. Dr. Papadopoulos informed “during the event, 9-year-old primary education students had the opportunity to ‘discuss’ with Dr. John Siolas and academics from Greece and Cyprus, exchanged views, pronounced poems about our Greek language and engaged in interactive and creative activities. 80 students of the Center of Greek Education were astonished! Not only did Dr. John Siolas greet them and talked to them he also pronounced the poem “Greek language” written by Nikiforos Vrettakos.”

Congratulations for an extraordinary event organized by Dr. Isaak Papadopoulos, Ms. Charikleia Rentina, and Ms. Maria Zisi supported by technological means, that have come to facilitate every pedagogical activity.
