What does “Helinika” mean?

The name “Helinika” was inspired by the Greek word “ελληνικά”, which means “Greek” (adj., neutral, plural, nominative). The “H” in this case, as in the cases of “Hellas” and “Hellenic“, is silent; however, slightly pronouncing is also correct.

Helinika can be used by anyone who wants to learn Greek; no prior knowledge of Greek is required. Our platform is used by non-native speakers and members of the Greek diaspora
