Teaching Greek as a Second Language to Refugee Children
Summary:
In this paper we try to evaluate the degree of conquest of Greek words (vocabulary learning) by refugee beginner learners. To answer this question, we have created three educational interventions. In the first one, teaching was carried out without the incorporation of any digital media, but with the use of images and matching activities; in the second one, we used a specially designed educational software, which was exclusively in the Greek language, while in the third one, we used the same software, with the incorporation of children’s mother tongue (Farsi, a Persian Language) in the digital environment. Significant differences between the groups were not observed as far as the acquisition of new words is concerned, but it is worth noting that the students who used the software seemed to have become more familiar with the words to be taught than other students, as well as the students who worked with their mother tongue as a tool. To a later scale, the software was evaluated by the students who used it, with positives results on it.
