One Week Greek Course in Athens

Whether you are visiting Athens for a week or working in the capital of Greece, an intensive one-week Greek course is ideal to boost your knowledge of the Greek language and really practice to speak Greek, while discovering this fascinating city at the same time. After completing an intensive program, you will feel much more self-confident when using the Greek language and will be motivated to start communicating in Greek. The morning classes focus on vocabulary, grammar and speaking exercises, while the afternoon activities are the perfect opportunity to put the theory into practice. Moreover, you get to see Athens from a local point of view. All our Athens courses always take place! However, sometimes they are fully booked, so do not wait too long to register.

  • In 2022, the 1-week courses in ATHENS will take place, during the months of October and November. See for dates below.
