Why learn with us:

Learning any language in the country in which it is used, takes the countless opportunities for contact and exposure into account. Learning Greek in Greece can help learners with their immediate communicative needs where they can immediately try out what they have been learning in the classroom and have the opportunity to "tune into" the sounds of the Greek language in real life situations.


Our main inspiration which drives the way materials are designed and programmes taught, is, first and foremost, belief in the principles of andragogy (as opposed to pedagogy), i.e., the educational philosophy governing the teaching of adults, whether in a group situation or in a one-to-one context.


According to this, we try to keep our adult learners involved in all the stages of the process, free to learn without being afraid to make mistakes, engaged through relevant content and discovery learning:

- Our approach satisfies immediate communicative needs.
- Language is best learnt through interaction and not through rule memorisation.

- Our syllabus is flexible allowing individuals to develop in areas of individual interest and/or concern.
- We train our students how to learn on their own, so they can keep improving language skills even after the end of the programme.
- The materials and activities are motivating and reflect the adult reality.
- Oral fluency is one of the major objectives. Activities which promote oral fluency are used from day one!
- Learning about the Greek culture and the Greek way of life is a major objective.
