Училището се намира в центъра на града. Той е заобиколен от двата най-доминиращи хълма на града: хълма Акропол - с Партенона, шедьовър на архитектурата - и хълм Ликавитос с църквата Св. Георгиос на върха.
В близост до училището има стотици ресторанти, барове и кафенета. Най-натоварените места на Атина, като Плака, Псири, Тезио и Колонаки, са достъпни пеша.
Училището предлага курсове по обща гръцка, старогръцка, бизнес гръцка, гръцка за наука, семинари и обучение на учители. От първите си стъпки се занимава и с разработването на образователен материал за гръцкия език, в стандартна печатна форма, както и в новата форма на образователен софтуер (мултимедиен диск).
Различните националности и възрасти в Center of Greek Language & Culture Alexander the Great - Athens varies варират според периода, курса и нивото.
The classes were productive. It took some time to find the correct pace, as we were a small group, but eventually we got there. Much attention was given to students' needs and to our sense of accomplishment, while trying to push forward as much as possible without wasting time on repetitive exercises. However, I would have benefited more from more freestyle oral exercise rather than adapting the same texts read in the book to our individual circumstances. That being said, in two weeks I have achieved a basic understanding of the language and its use. With some practice, this will be put to good use.
The teachers were competent and kind, and aside from some setbacks, were very accommodating to the students' needs.
The school is conveniently located near a metro station, across from a nice park, with food, transportation and points of interest in short distance.
The facility is a beautiful building with very nice spaces housing the various groups of students of varying levels.
The extracurricular activities were nice, but I only participated in about half of them, so I can't comment.
The staff is VERY welcoming and is very committed to the students and their well being. The groups are very small, mine included 3 students only, a size which enables very good practice with the advantages of a group. The activities (like going to a museum, dancing lesson etc. are with all the students,thus one gets to know other students as well.
The level of learning is very high (sometimes too quick to perceive...!) and learning experience is extremely positive.
I would love to have more practising time and more activities, but the whole experience was great and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND learning there!
Es war insgesamt eine sehr nette Atmosphäre. Die Lehrerin, der Direktor und die Sekretärin waren überaus freundlich,entgegenkommend und hilfreich.Покажи подробности » Прочетете още...

The school is situated in a beautiful house, and the classes are perfect for the small groups.The facilities could be a little bit better, but they are ok. The activities for A1-students, like me, are not so easy to understand, but this depends on the my Greek
expertise. Our teacher was very good. It was an intensive week, but we have learned a lot!! I think I'll come back for further Greek lessons!
I had 2 hour-private lessons each morning for a week 7-11 May, in order to prepare the B2 exam in Greek language, which was taking place on 16 May.
The teacher was dynamic, she gave me a lot of tips for the exam and was trying to identify issues I should further work on in the afternoon. I had intensive homework to do for the next day: listening tests, writing tests, which were corrected the next day with specific focus on grammar/vocabulary improvement. All tests were based on previous years' official B2 exams.
As soon as I arrived at the school on Monday 7, I was included in a short introductory session, with other people attending the school that week. This was very useful to be integrated in the school (especially that I had private lessons and could not meet people during the lessons). I was also fully integrated in the activities that were proposed (cinema, museum...), even if I participated to the museum activity only. This was the opportunity to meet other people, teachers and students, and discuss in Greek!
Facilities are very nice, next to Omonia square, in a nice peaceful building in front of a park. The director and the assistants were very friendly the whole week, making sure I was fine in Athens, fine with my accommodation, having no troubles and safe. At the end of my stay, the director received me for 15 min in his office and offered me a book in Greek for my next steps, as well as a certificate of attendance.
Because we were with two students in the classroom I could speak/ learn a lot. People were very friendly Accommodation was good but they will move the next week. I was a little bit difficult to find the entrance. I was early, the first day after holidays and the door was closed. The entrance was the next door but no marking of Alexander the Great. People of the cafeterias informed me about the correct entrance. Good teacher, interesting activities. The only thing I missed was the sea to take a swim. It was hot. However in the center you have other advantages.Покажи подробности » Прочетете още...

I was in a B2 class first with just one, later with two classmates so everyone gets a lot of practice in speaking. Teachers are clearly very professional, with degrees in philology or linguistics and they know what they are doing. You are in excellent hands! They will push and challenge you and assign a fair amount of homework to prepare for an intensive course. We used Taksidi stin Ellada II and III (published by the School, along with a useful phrasebook in various language permutations). The books are excellent, very well-structured and personally I found the topics very interesting. We also occasionally used handouts with grammar exercises or newspaper articles.
The teachers are warm and nice to talk to. I must also mention the director, Mr. Kostas is a really lovely person, always ready to help or chat with students. His passion for Greek culture, for geography, history and etymology is infectious. I could listen to him all day. He also organized a few extra-curricular activities: a nice dinner under the Acropolis, a few talks on the journey from Ancient to Modern Greek, a movie with a brief but fascinating introduction to modern Greek history... In summer they do introductory classes for those interested in Greek theater as well as some other activities, e.g. intensive courses.
The library is very well stocked, classrooms are pleasant and the school is situated right across the street from the Archaeological Museum (a 10 mins' walk from Victoria metro stn.).
I would highly recommend this school to those who want to brush up their Greek, or are serious about learning the language in depth. I can't comment on beginners' courses but I'm hearing they are very good. Because the number of students is on the small side, it felt like a big family. I'll be coming back!
I enjoyed the structure of lessons, small size of class, variety of format and opportunity to talk. I also really appreciated that at school we were not only taught Greek language, but were also given an insight into the Greek culture, habits, traditions - a priceless information that you can't get from books. All the school personnel are very positive, warm, accessible, enthusiastic and professional. Our teacher gave us a great base for future learning!Покажи подробности » Прочетете още...
Everyone were so helpful and kind. The classes were small so everybody had time to ask question. The Headmaster, Mr. Kostas is a very kind man and interested and cared about us, students. It was really, really great,Покажи подробности » Прочетете още...
The school was excellent. The teachers were very good and kind. I studied for 4 weeks and I got more of the basics of the language. I learned from the history of Greece and also poems and others. We also went to some restaurants to learn about their culture and their way of life. The director of the school was very kind and in all activities he was with us. He explained to us a lot of the Greek history. The fee for the school was, for me fully acceptable.Покажи подробности » Прочетете още...
I loved the quality of the teachers and their predisposition to make you learn and the passion of teaching you can see in their faces during the whole morning. Special mention to Maria. The location is quite strange - its a small door that leads you in a kind of small house with a lot of floors.. the lift is very old.Покажи подробности » Прочетете още...
I want to thank you for the excellent course organized in Athens. The school was great and I want to thank the director, and most of all teacher Sofia Yoanidu from whom I received great lessons.
I hope I have a chance to repeat their studies in this school in Athens, and if the expression may with the same teacher.
We used the book: USGA, You Speak Greek Already.
That was tough.
The teachers were very kind and helpful with much patience.
They were very skilled.
At the end of my study time they gave me extra compliments.
The atmosphere was very relaxed.
My class consisted of two students.
Of course two weeks is too short for making me a native speaker.
But it was a start.
I have to return many times more.
And have exercises at home.
The hotel Parnon is a good location.

For January 2014, the starting date is Tuesday 7.
We usually book rooms for our students for as long as the course lasts. But if this student would like to stay for more days in Athens after the end of the course, it would not be a problem. We can arrange that.
