It is all super organized and the atmosphere is extremely friendly. They also try to get the students in contact with each other. It was also great that in the first week only 2 students were in the class, and in the second week 3 students. The two teachers we had were very dedicated and really professional.
Other comments
You can join completely relaxed, everyone is nice, everything regulates itself. Nevertheless, you learn a lot and the class is really demanding.

Is there any better comment? I already sent my colleague to attend the same course in March 2017 and I myself will take private lessons end of January because I cannot fit into existing group. Great experience!

Other comments
Every day, classes began at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. I would have liked to know that in advance because then I would have prepared myself and planned differently for the week. No activities have been offered to me in Athens. My teacher has given me advice what I could visit. Those were really good. I have not seen any other students at this school, which I thought was strange. I did not really get to know the school itself.

As a beginner I could only get a taste of the language, even after a four week course. But considering what we did in class, this is the best you can get from a language school

the quality of the teaching; the teachers were excellent, they also offered a lot of extra activities like visits to museums, lectures on Greek history, everyday life, invitations to tavernas every second week; excellent teaching material etc.
Other comments
All the members of the staff were very helpful, friendly and could be contacted any time. I think if you want to participate in the lectures you can really learn a lot. I can highly recommend this school and the teachers. You also had the possibility to write a test at the end according to the European language levels.
