Acronym:  Griko
Lead Partner:  Euro-Mediterranean Cultural Heritage Agency
Partners:  British Hellenic Educational And Development Association (Gr); Alpha Publications (Gr); University of Cyprus (CY);Institute of Mediterranean Cultures (IT) 

Griko is a minority language, spoken in one of the two linguistic islands of Southern Italy, in the area known as Grecìa Salentina, in Apulia. It is composed by Doric words that prove its derivation from ancient Greek, as well as from medieval and modern Greek.

Griko is currently taught in primary and secondary schools of the areas where it is spoken, nevertheless, this minority language, for several economic and cultural reasons, is disappearing and, for this reasons , must be protected and preserved as precious heritage of the common Mediterranean culture.

The project Pos Matome Griko wants to enhance a new and renewed interest for Griko language, making its teaching and learning easy and interesting through the development of a modern and innovative teaching methodology, supported by multimedia tools applied to ‘language teaching.

The project team  - composed by high profile international partners, with long experience in projecting and executing initiatives aiming at preserving and improving the value of Euro-Mediterranean Cultural Heritage  - has produced an all new educational material, which is absolutely innovative for concept and methodology. The traditional educational tools as vocabularies, books, language courses for children and adults, are, in fact, supported by modern ICT applied to education: The website www.e-griko.eu , the e-learning platform and the educational software are, in fact, an essential part of the method and have been studied and designed to involve and catch the attention of younger people. Nevertheless, alsoadults will have access to a comprehensive and integrated educational system for learning Griko at all levels.

The availability of modern teaching materials and the development of specific educational curricula are the strengths of the project to raise awareness on the important cultural and historical role played by Griko in everyday life and behaviour of the Griko speaking population. For this reason this language can and must be protected and preserved.
