Greek Language Course in Athens – 2 weeks

A Greek intensive two-week language course in Athens is the perfect way to boost your knowledge and start communicating in Greek. Speaking the language is our priority, and our interactive methods of teaching are made to communicate in Greek from day 1, from the beginning to the advanced levels.
With small classes (maximum 5) you will be able to improve and focus on your speaking abilities.
The Omilo team will guide you through a two-week program during which you can fully focus on improving your Greek language skills, as well as exploring the “real Athens”. Learning Greek is more than just vocabulary and grammar, it’s also about getting to know the Greek culture and communicating with the locals. In the city of Athens, you will have the perfect opportunity to put the theory into practice, and learn the everyday Greek language. Moreover, you will be introduced to Athens from a local point of view.

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.

For the teaching schedule, see below.

The course materials will be given to you by Omilo and are included in the price. The teachers are qualified and very experienced, and the small size of the groups 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.

During this week your classes will take place, but no extra cultural activities are organized.
This is a perfect time to explore the city, the museums, the shops,..
