The Genre-based Approach to the Teaching of Greek Philological Courses

ANNA GEORGIOU, Ioannis Fykaris


The main purpose of this paper is to highlight the importance and role of the communicative- genre based approach in the teaching of philological courses. Also, mention and study the way in which the communicative- genre based approach can help the student both in his later communication course and in the social one. With the communicative- genre based approach, the student is invited to come into contact with different texts each time, to try to process them emphasizing on the functionality of the texts, their style and their critical reading, avoiding focusing on the syntax and vocabulary of the text. This teaching can be considered innovative because its focus is on the text itself, which is understood as a whole and operates in relation to the other linguistic elements. Furthermore, the communicative- genre based approach emphasizes the importance of the student's understanding and perception of the text and does not require him to focus on vocabulary and sentence syntax. It could be an alternative teaching that wants to promote the freedom of expression and thought of the student and the way he understands and perceives the text he processes as a whole. The innovation of the communicative-text-centered approach lies in highlighting that it is an alternative technique that aims to enable the student to process and perceive the texts taught.
