The programs are addressed at:
- Foreigners who love Greece, visit often and want to learn, to communicate in the language of the country.
- Foreigners who live and work for a long or a short period of time in Greece.
- Students and teachers/lecturers of foreign schools and universities who are studying or teaching ancient or modern Greek language, Greek history and civilization.
- Greeks who live abroad.
- Translators or interpreters who work or want to work as Greek language translators or interpreters.

Teaching methods:

The teaching methods are modern, pleasant and lively. Pictures, music, language games and dramatization play the basic roles. The Centre uses well-tried textbooks that teach the Greek language as a foreign language, as well as original materials from many various sources with a different degree of difficulty per level, to provide the best possible familiarization for the student with real situations.

Teaching materials are given to the students free of charge along with materials concerning the town and the facilities it offers for taking advantage of one's leisure time.


Greek teachers at the "LEXIS Centre" have many years experience of teaching the Greek language as a foreign language and enjoy their work immensely. They are exclusively University graduates and the Greek language is their native language.


Regular Greek Courses; Intensive Greek Courses; Private Greek Lessons.


The Centre has a list of hotels, rented flats, studios and bungalows for those interested. We have also selected a number of families which can accommodate our students and can show them what Greek hospitality means.


The Centre of Greek Language and Culture "Lexis" not only offers language courses, as we firmly believe the language itself cannot be taught without taking into account the cultural environment in which it is spoken and has evolved. It is the Centre's intention to bring the students to very close contact with modern life and the culture of the country and especially with that of the island of Crete and as close as possible to the Cretan people.

This aim is achieved through various activities taking place in and out of the Centre. Examples are
- nature walks in the surrounding regions
- a visit to a museum, to an exhibition, to a monument or to a place of one's work (e.g. to a lawyer's office, to a painter's studio or to a farm during the hours that people are working)
- a meal together with all the students and the teachers in a tavern or a restaurant in the town or in the neighboring suburbs
- preparing a typical Greek dish in the kitchen of the school
- a short live presentation of folk or Cretan music in the school premises or a puppet-show performance (Karagiozis)
- a presentation of slides and/or a video tape showing Greece and Greek civilization
