What students liked about Hellenic Language School Alexander the Great, Chania (Crete)
I liked how friendly and accommodating Effi and Eleni (apologies for misspellings) were. I liked Eleni's style of teaching - friendly yet focused. I like that this school exists! I really appreciated Effi's trip that she arranged to the Museum of Typology and how personable she was.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: It's not necessary to book private lessons. Even if there are not other students, you can still book the class lessons and they will accommodate to you. It's cheaper.
Other comments: 2 pieces of constructive feedback: 1) on the first day, outline to the student what you are going to focus on over the whole course (however long it is). This way, it is easier for the student to place what they are learning in a larger context. 2) get a textbook that has instructions in English, at least for the earlier levels. It is very difficult for me to complete the lessons without help from a Greek speaker.
