Books and apps. Our material, created by our experienced teachers and academic advisors, has been designed to fit the needs of our learners. Digital material, folk songs, movies and short videos are used to create bespoke content for our students’ learning applications, provided by the school. We love our applications because they make Greek easy and even more appealing to our learners.
Small class size. Classes are small, with an average of 8-12 students per class, to give all participants enough space to speak and interact with the material, their classmates and their teacher.
