greek on naxos

What about learning Greek on Naxos island?
Learning to speak Greek is usually more fun and easier when you are in Greece, and that is also the reason why the Omilo school started organizing Greek Language and Culture courses  in Greece. Since 1997 we have welcomed participants in various locations, such as Athens, Nea Makri, Limni (Evia), Hydra, Andros, Syros, Nafplion, Lefkada….
Because many students return every year and like to go to different areas in Greece, in 2023 we decided to add one more location to our programme.

And that is….
…the island of Naxos.


In October 2023, the very first Naxos course took place, with 25 students.
τον Οκτώβριο του 2023, έλαβε χώρα το πρώτο πρόγραμμα του Ομιλώ στην Νάξο, με 25 μαθητές.

After the successful Naxos course in 2023,

Omilo decided to organize a 1-week course on the island of NAXOS once again,
from Tuesday October 1st till Tuesday October 8th 2024.

Αποφασίσαμε να οργανώσουμε για άλλη μια φορά το πρόγραμμα στο νησί της Νάξου,
από την Τρίτη, 1 Οκτωβρίου μέχρι την Τρίτη, 8 Οκτωβρίου 2024.


Why this course is not listed like the other courses on the “course overview“?
Simply, because last year and up till now we had reserved the course for “returning Omilo students”.
At the moment (April 2024) we only have an extra 12 places available.
We decided to offer the possibility to register firstly to  Omilo students and those reading our blog articles, and our Newsletters 🙂
From 2025 onward, the course will be also announced as the other courses.
