Τα όντα της Μαρίας  Our students talk about the courses and their experience at the Ikarian centre.

Τα όντα της Μαρίας

This August I again took a two-week course in Ikaria. And again, it was a very pleasant experience. This year there were 14 students and our group consisted of 6 people. I noticed several very welcome changes: The classes were always held in the mornings. This way it was possible to spend the afternoons studying at the beach. Each day we were able to order food from the tavern Plaka in Pera Arethousa. A few times a day it was

Another wonderful two weeks in Ikaria

Seit 6 Jahren lerne ich griechisch. Nach 2 Sprachkursen bei einer anderen Organisation wollte ich Neues probieren. Ich fand einen Kurs von 12. – 23. Mai bei Michalis auf Ikaria Wir waren 5 Teilnehmer in 2 Gruppen. Der Unterricht gestaltete sich abwechslungs-reich mit Texten, Übungen, Spielen Projekten, und “Freizeitprogramm” mit Singen, Kochen, Ausflügen. Von morgens bis abends nur griechisch – wie sonst unterhält man sich, wenn Teilnehmer und Lehrer aus 7 unterschiedlichen Ländern kommen. Von “Guten Morgen” bis “Gute Nacht”

Apprendre le grec est un projet que j’ai depuis quelques années mais que j’avais toujours mis de côté par manque de temps, priorité, etc. Il y a un an, j’ai décidé d’agir et je me suis donc inscrite au stage de 3 semaines en aout 2015 à l’Ikarian Centre. J’ai opté pour le logement gratuit, une des cabines situées dans le Centre, que j’ai partagé avec une charmante étudiante ukrainienne. Les cabines étaient propres (nettoyées tous les deux jours) et

Un séjour linguistique inoubliable

I am Spanish, 27yo, mathematician, and I study Greek for fun, because I love the country and its people and lived in Athens for a few months yeas ago. I did the summer course and I definitely recommend the Ikarian Centre: great lessons, beautiful school in the mountain, Greek beaches and local parties in small villages. The lessons: with my experience in language courses, these lessons were the best we could have. We were 4 students in the intermediate level,

Cours à Ikaria
Voici mon commentaire bi-lingue ! (mais pas encore en grec…) The curses Center is located in a very beautiful area, with a wonderful view of the sea and the mountains. It is a little far from Evdilos (20 minutes by car). The lessons are well organized, with educational tools to made learning the vocabulary and grammar easier. Sometimes, I found the lesson was a little too fast for me as I am a beginner. I had to word very hard

In the desert of the sea Ikaria is a garden

An extraordinary and expiring place, Ikaria has everything an artists needs – colours and a very diverse nature, lovely towns, a peaceful Environment – and white sand and clear sea when you need some test! Team of people very friendly and beautiful and big guesthouse. Definitely recommend.

I am a huge fan of Greek islands. Five years ago I finally started learning Modern Greek. After completing the two excellent Pimsleur’s audio courses I took several consecutive Modern Greeek courses at the Ljubljana University. I am very grateful to my Greek teacher Mrs. Vasso Varsamakidou who taught me so much about Greek language and culture. Although I learned a lot and I visit Greece as often as possible I desperately needed an opportunity to spend some time in

    I attended the early April course of 2018, and it has been a wonderful experience. Great teaching, great for learning and practicing modern greek, in an incredibly beautiful and peaceful setting. Very stimulating, also through the interaction … More with the other students. I totally recommend it.

The Ikarian Centre is the perfect place for a learning holiday. Learn Greek then practice with the locals on an island paradise. I’ve taken 2 courses here and can only encourage you to come too!
