The Centre for the Greek Language acts as a co-ordinating advisory organ of the Ministry of Education on matters of language education and policy. It serves as a focal point of information on topics pertaining to language and coordinates communication among organizations, both within Greece and abroad, which deal with Greek language matters. It has produced a variety of publications both of the national language and also on issues of

multilingualism in the E.U. (Conferences, workshops etc.). It is the agency responsible for the Examinations for the Attainment in Greek. It has also created a special Portal dealing with the introduction of new technologies in Secondary education in connection with language teaching. The Portal for the Greek Language includes text corpora, various dictionaries and databases, as well as various language resources, covering all periods of the Greek language development.
