Learn Greek in Greece
Learning Greek in Greece is your chance to take a step back in time and visit the very roots of European civilisation. Greek is a language that has established itself as the “building blocks” of many of the languages we see today. Learning Greek abroad is an opportunity to gain a strong advantage in learning English, French, Spanish or Italian while also learning something new about your own language! While Greek is only officially spoken by two countries (Greece and Cyprus), there is a huge community of Greek speakers across the world, learning Greek abroad is your window into this rich and widespread culture and making some new friends along the way!
Your language programme in Greece will expose you to the ancient relics of an interesting civilisation across the country while learning a language that connects you to it. Lastly, Greece is home to some of the most beautiful coastline on the Mediterranean so make sure to take a break from the classroom and soak up some sun in one of the pristine beaches!
The ancient Greeks built their cities high in the hills to avoid the constant threat of invasions, which today means that you’ll have incredible views! You’ll see all the beautiful beaches, coves and bays where you can go swimming, or immerse yourself in history and culture in the cobbled streets of Athens. According to Greek mythology, Athena, goddess of war, won the war of the gods to control the city and since then has been the guardian of Athens. Today, the capital is a modern city with a metro system as well as pedestrian streets surrounding the historic ruins… there are plenty of ways to discover this one-of-a-kind city!
