Courses take place at Easter, in June and in September. Moreover Students can enroll for a one-week, two-week, three-week or four-week course, depending on the time frame they have available.
Above all our school offers intensive courses at basic, intermediate and advanced levels. In fact classes aim to help students develop all language skills. Priority is given to speaking as well as verbal comprehension in a multitude of communicative scenarios.
Chios is a unique place, attractive to visitors all year round. Our students will not only have the chance to learn Greek but also experience the many islands’ unique Easter customs. For example the most characteristic is Holy Saturday’s rocketwar: two churches “attack” one another by firing rockets, creating a spectacular show. In summer, Chios oozes mastic, a unique product both in terms of domestic and international trade. Turquoise dappled waters and a myriad of local customs and copious cultural heritage invite you to a fascinating trip we can take together!
Emphasis is placed on acquainting participants with the Greek culture: local tradition and customs, everyday activities, Greek music, literature, mythology and history are an integral part of the course.
