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 it is also correct.

Who Can Use Helinika for Learning Greek?

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