On your arrival day, the Omilo team will welcome you at 19.00 at the Nafplion School, where you will be introduced to the teachers and other participants. The program will be explained, as well as all the options for the cultural activities related to the Greek Easter festivities. At around 20.00, all students are invited to a tavern meal in the center of Nafplion. It is the perfect moment to get to know the other students, talk to the teachers, taste Greek food and eventually start communicating in Greek.

The following day (Monday) your Greek lessons start. 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 level that is right for them. The course materials will be given to you during the course and are included in the price.

For the first week, you will have six days of classes, from Monday till Saturday. On Easter Sunday and Easter Monday there are no classes: a perfect time to explore Nafplion, go to the beach, or visit the amazing archeological sites around Nafplion. For the second week you have four days of classes, from Tuesday till Friday.

In addition to the intensive Greek lessons in the morning, on offer are various social and cultural activities during the afternoons (free of charge), ideal opportunities to also practice your Greek listening and communication skills.
