Abstract: The objective of the present research is to provide an account of the
course, the role and the orientation of English as a school curriculum
subject in Greece, from 1913 to 1967, as defined by the given political
and socio-economic conditions on an international, national and local
level, the government policy directives, the methods and approaches
officially endorsed, as well as the forms daily classroom practice takes
within this context, in order to achieve a comparison with the
contemporary educational reality. More specifically, this study presents a
comprehensive picture of the teaching practice and school reality with
regard to English, from its first appearance in the Greek educational
system, located at the onset of the 20th century, until the late 1960s. At
the same time, the study identifies the various parameters and factors
that have influenced the subject, so as to gain perspective on current
English language teaching trends, methods, approaches and techniques.
