Are you planning to study Greek in Greece? The Ikarian Center has been organizing Greek courses on the island of Ikaria almost all year round, for more than 20 years! Each course includes 10 lessons (one lesson per day) of 3 hour tuition per lesson (36 teaching hours in total) + 18h of activities, usually within a period of 11-12 days. This is the equivalent to a two-week course. Students may register for more than one courses.
Most of our Greek language courses are taking place on-campus, in the mountainous Arethousa. Some courses within the year are taking place in the coastal village of Evdilos, 8 Km away.
The Centre’s campus is located on a remote spot on the mountains. The view of both the mountains and the sea is breathtaking and the environment is ideal for study. It’s an ideal place for someone who wants to stay away from the crowded beaches. If the view of the birds of prey flying above your head, a glass of wine under the milky way of a starry sky, the voices of the goats and the sounds of the bells of the sheep are at least equally important for you as a night in a bar with friends, then the campus is an ideal place to study Greek.
The courses / season:
From the crowd of August to the olive harvest period in late October – November and the carnival before Easter, the changes of the seasons have an important impact on the life of islanders. Our courses cannot avoid following these changes and students will live another experience depending on the season they will participate in the courses. Following, we try to highlight the changes in the program related with the changes of the seasons.
