:. Greek language related to the education of our children in UAE

Sent by: Arfara Evangelia


My husband works for an international bank and lately he has been offered a job in Dubai for the next 2-3 years. 

So we are seriously concerned about moving the whole family there. 

We have two children at the ages of 3 and 5 yrs old. Since there is always the possibility of returning buck to Greece upon the completion of this period, we would like to know if there are any international schools there that also teach Greek or if there is any other programs provided by the Greek community regarding the development of the Greek language for the greek children in Dubai.  

Thank you in advance. E.A.



You will find answers to your query in our Advice and Useful Info sections, where there are detailed information about Greek language lessons in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

These are afternoon lessons conducted by a teacher sent by the Ministry of Education.

The Hellenic Council supervises the greek language examinations in relation with the "Attainment of the Greek Language" (Πιστοποιήση Ελληνομάθειας)

Greek language is not taught in international schools in UAE.
