Content of course

Upon registration, the participants receive a questionnaire which records the individual training needs. The curriculum of the Workshop is then designed based on these needs and it is communicated to the participants before the Workshop start. The general principles of the curriculum are the following:

  • Communication skill practice with every day situations
  • Writing reading listening skills
  • Structure of the language
  • Greek culture
  • Outings and sight seeing visits

  • Learning is performed in a highly pleasant environment, near the sea or near the Acropolis!
  • All day exposure to the language
  • Acceleration of the learning process owing to the different settings (learning beyond the setting of the classroom (Active Learning))
  • Individual attention to identified weaknesses in performance from the Needs Analysis process
  • The participants gain confidence in their speaking capabilities; they are able to be more spontaneous and natural when communicating in Greek, even at a basic level.


Enjoy learning Greek with learning art at the same time. You may replace the evening Greek course with lessons on Byzantine Iconography by an accomplished Iconography artist. Or you may come to enjoy only the iconography classes and have free time in the morning to get to know Athens! The total duration of this course is 15 hours, with lessons from 16:30-19:30. By the end of this course you will have created your own icon! No prior experience or knowledge of painting is required.

The idea of this workshop is to help participants feel the satisfaction of creation and get a hands-on understanding of the iconography technique. Step by step each participant completes a full icon within 5 lessons.
