The school was very flexible in accommodating my needs (private tuition) and promoted me so I met other students in the school.
My teacher had very good teaching skills and was really helpful and friendly. The lessons were very useful and a pleasure to attend. I learned a lot and became more fluent in Greek, which was my primary interest.
