The purpose of this study was to investigate the needs and performance of students attending the «Aristotle» school as well as to record the views of their parents and the teachers’ training needs. The «Aristotle» school is the only primaryηschool in Toronto area that is recognized by the Hellenic Republic. Our goal was to collect data which would help us better understand thethoughts and needs of the school community, in an attempt to achieve a common goal of providing the highest quality of Greek Language Paideia. Taking into consideration the gathered needs, and the guidelines for language acquisition described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF, 2001), the Modern Greek Paideia Program was developed by professors and researchers of the University of Western Macedonia in collaboration with the Greek Community of Toronto. It is tailored to meet the needs and interests of students who learn Greek as a second/foreign language in Canada, and it is a student centered, flexible language program that promotes intercultural communication, and aims at developing multi-literacies skills, cognitive and metacognitive language strategies, enhancing students’ creativity and critical thinking skills, and promoting bilingual awareness (by helping students make connections between English and Greek).
