Over the last 25 years, Omilo has expanded from a dream into a successful Greek language school, offering Greek language and culture courses to adult students from all over the world.
It all started in 1996, when Omilo was founded by Dimitris and Maya Andreadis. In addition to being one of the Omilo teachers himself, Dimitris is in charge of the organizational and financial aspects of the business, while Maya oversees the cultural activities, administration, marketing, social media, website as well as writing blog articles and writing the Monthly Dose of Sunshine! With their background of university studies in Greece, Belgium and the USA along with their international experience, Maya and Dimitris are well equipped to be at the helm of this exciting educational endeavor.
Omilo offers a unique approach to teaching Modern Greek, backed by a select team of Greek teachers and staff members. The informal and relaxed atmosphere of Omilo’s classes makes learning Greek an enjoyable and successful experience for all. Our priority is providing top-quality teaching, but at the same time, Omilo also aims to bring its students into direct contact with local customs, history and culture through various excursions and activities.
From 1997 to the present, the Omilo team has been offering courses in such places as Athens, Nea Makri (Attiki), Limni (Evia), and Nafplion as well as the islands of Hydra, Syros, Andros and Lefkada. Omilo never stopped expanding: in fact, we are constantly looking for new locations.
Last but not least, since 2013 Omilo also publishes language books and materials, and offers several options to learn Greek online.
