During this language and culture week, you learn the Dimotiki (Dimos = People) Greek colloquial that the majority of the Greek people speak and write. The Greek language has a long and rich history and the alphabet differs from the alphabet that we use. But you master this quickly. Knowledge of the Greek alphabet is a prerequisite to be able to read, write and natural conversations independently in Greek to carry. Of course also be a small piece of Greek history, art and culture will be part of the course.
The course consists of speech, listening and writing exercises. We also deal with practical issues such as asking for directions, shopping, going to the pharmacy, etc. During the week there are actually several times when you can practice the language in real life situations. You receive the required course material in Poros and these are included in the price. There are dictionaries available, but it is recommended to bring along your own dictionaries.
After registration we will contact you, to estimate your starting level, so that the course content connects seamlessly to your knowledge. During this week we also enjoy Poros Island, by making nice walks, trips to town Poros and an excursion to Aigina, Ydra or Epidavros. We’ll enjoy the outdoors life of Greece and during your free moments you will have the ability discover the island by yourself.
