What students liked about Hellenic Language School Alexander the Great, Athens
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.

Other comments: You can join completely relaxed, everyone is nice, everything regulates itself. Nevertheless, you learn a lot and the class is really demanding.
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.
Other comments: nice and smart director, good teachers, in Athens you can of course see and do a lot; am sure if you go to school there longer you can benefit a lot more.
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.
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.
