How we create the points regarding what we like/dislike about a school

Location: The school is situated in the centre of Athens, in a student area, next to the Park of Pedion Areos, the Athens University of Economics and Business, the Victoria Square and the Exarchia Square, a lively “anarchist” square, full of cafeterias, bars, and taverns.

Student opinions about Hellenic Language School Alexander the Great, Athens

Liked
The staff is very friendly and answer all questions. The extra-linguistic program was interesting (the manager is an excellent historian, and can explain a lot ..). Nice Christmas Party with delicious pastries and wine .. Especially I liked the dance class, two times! The lessons (I had two teachers, individual and group lessons) depend a lot on the person. The group lessons were very teacher- and frontal orientated. The use of different media and playful interactive approaches (also between the participants) are hardly available. But that seems to be a general problem in Greece ...
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Be sure to join the extra program! In Athens itself, Niarchos Center is an architectural highlight, the Kykladishe Museum, small but magnificent archaic sculptures! For jazz fans: Half Note Jazz Club! Cultural program (dance, music, exhibitions): Onassis cultural center! The Musical Instruments Museum, with ancient instruments and music examples/videos regarding the music history on mainland and islands.

Other comments See above. The lessons could be more "easy-going". The teachers are, especially in one-to-one lessons, open-minded, if you suggest something. So encourage future participants to voice their opinions, suggestions or criticisms on site! The more students do that, the more likely it is that something will change.

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.

I was only there for 3 days, I had very good private lessons, 3 hours every day for 3 consecutive days, they systematically deepened the grammar, which has brought me a big leap forward. Friday was a poetry event, all students read a poem, was also stimulating.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss You should certainly go to school longer. I go weekly in Switzerland in each case a double lesson, so a targeted deepening is also useful, even if it is only a week.

Very solid with a caring director and secretary. Also teachers who gave the best of themselves. The afternoon conversation was also very instructive to learn simple Greek and to support each other.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Beautiful museums, including the lesser known, such as folk instruments and ancient technology. Also a lot of ordinary monuments. Trips to Sounion and the sea (Portarafti) are worthwhile.
