What others say.

  • Tutor was fantastic. I found the practical approach and adjusting to suit needs of the class was great. Good basic course and certainly came away with more knowledge than I expected.

  • My teacher is fantastic! My Greek is improving, and I feel transported to Greece in every lesson. Each lesson is multi-dimensional, teaching us about not just the language, but the culture and traditions. I’m really looking forward to Level 2, and beyond!

  • Our tutor was lovely and clearly loved talking about Greece. Excellent structure to the class and I will be continuing next term.
