Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The good location invites you to enjoy a beautiful walk through the old streets and/or a creamy frappé in Splanzia :) Well-priced local taverns.
Other comments: Quiet and central location, 150 metres from the sea. Relaxed atmosphere. All in all, I had a great time and I'm the frontrunner in my beginner's course in Düsseldorf

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you stay up around the northwest end of the harbor, the back way is faster than going via the harbor walk. Use η οδος θεοτοψοπουλου.
Other comments: Very little bureaucratic BS. I walked in, told the person in the office my name, she called someone, that person showed up, and we started the lesson.
The instructors are experienced and knowledgeable with teaching Greek as a foreign language. The school administration did a good job in assessing and matching skill level of students and the instructors utilized our varied strengths and weaknesses for the benefit of our collective learning. The book they use is excellent. I really appreciated the group activities.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Not really insider tips....but enjoy the food, take as many trips as you can (the buses are terrific) to the beach, to the mountains and engage with the locals they love helping you with your Greek.
Other comments: I really enjoyed the 4 weeks I spent at Lexis. Maria is an excellent teacher. She was encouraging and patient and worked hard to make sure you were in classes appropriate to your level. There were times, however when we could have covered less material and done more consolidation. Overall it was a great experience, I met some lovely people and would love to return.
