Two Week Greek Course on Lefkada island

For those who want to learn and especially speak Greek, while also enjoying a beautiful holiday in Greece, near the most amazing Greek beaches and a beautiful natural setting, the island of Lefkada is the perfect choice! Our interactive methods of teaching are made to satisfy communication needs for every level: during your morning classes you can fully focus on improving your Greek language skills in small groups, and during the afternoons you can put the theory into practice.
Of course, learning Greek is also about getting to know the Greek culture and communicating with the locals. Therefor we propose several optional afternoon activities, which are a perfect way to practice speaking Greek and learn more about the “real Greece”. Furthermore, the impressive natural beauty of Lefkada island offers many possibilities for relaxing walks and excursions.

On the indicated arrival day, the Omilo team will welcome you at 19.00 in the Lefkada School, situated at the Agatha Pension in the village of Agios Nikitas, 10km north of the town of Lefkas. You will be introduced to the teachers and other participants and the program will be explained as well as all the options for activities or excursions. At around 20.00 all students are invited to a tavern meal in a local Greek tavern in Agios Nikitas, which is included in the course price. It is the perfect moment to get to know the other participants, talk to the teachers, taste Greek food and start communicating in Greek.

The following Monday your Greek classes will begin. On the first day of the course, students will be asked to take a quick placement test so that they can be put in the right class. The course materials will be given out during the course and are included in the price.

For the first week, you will have 6 days of classes: on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On the first Thursday and 2nd Monday you will have no classes; thus, you will have an opportunity to explore the island, relax on the beach, learn your Greek vocabulary or participate in one of the activities on offer. During the second week you have four days of classes: on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

In addition to the intensive Greek lessons in the morning, various social and cultural activities during the afternoons (free of charge) are organized, during which you can also practice your Greek communication skills.
