Students for the morning classes (depending on the level) are welcomed in the Maroussi school (North Athens) on the indicated arrival date at 10.00.
Students for the afternoon classes (depending on the level) are welcomed at the school at 13.00.
You will be asked to take a brief placement test after your registration, or on the first school-day, so that we can determine the level that is best for you.

At 13.15 on the first day, you are invited to enjoy a tavern lunch in Maroussi (included in the course price). This way you will get to know the other participants and teachers and learn some more daily Greek vocabulary! During the lunch we will also inform you about the afternoon activities and cultural program.

The course materials will be given to you by Omilo and are included in the price. The Omilo teachers are qualified and very experienced, and the small size of the groups (max. 5) enables them to consider the individual wishes and needs of the participants. Students at Omilo come from countries around the world and create an interesting, friendly and international classroom atmosphere.

Omilo knows that having fun is an essential part of learning. It’s when you are happy and relaxed that you are most able to begin using what you have learned in class in a natural way. Therefore Omilo organizes, in addition to the intensive Greek classes in the morning, various social and cultural activities during the afternoons.
