A little bit of Omilo history with the Omilo Greek Diary! : ) Listen to the dialogue in Greek, improve your listening skills, and build your vocabulary,
with the extra Greek-English transcript and parallel text, which you can find under the video.
Omilo was founded in 1996 by Maya and Dimitris Andreadis, and the very first Omilo Greek Language and Culture Course took place in the village of Nea Makri, Attiki, in July 1997.
Sophia was the first teacher at Omilo, and was teaching several courses during 1997 and 1998.
Although in those times you could count the Greek language schools on one hand, and it was not so obvious to find teachers used to teach Greek to non-Greeks,
Sophia was very experienced in teaching Greek to foreigners since she had been already teaching Greek to Americans for many years while living in the USA.
Upon her return to Greece from the USA, she was happy to continue teaching Greek to foreigners, together with Omilo.
Listen to the dialogue between Dimitris and Sophia, while sharing some nice memories of the very first 3-week-course and amazing Omilo students.
