Spend 4 or 8 weeks at Ikarian Centre in Ikaria in a long-term Greek language course, to improve your Greek, get to know the island better and enjoy the tranquility and peace of the environment around our campus. Classes are offered for two hours in the morning, daily from Monday to Friday, on-campus. Accommodation is also provided on campus and it is included in the tuition fee. The transfers from the campus to the nearby harbor Evdilos and the coastal Karavostamo are made on a daily basis by our min-bus. In this way you can do your shopping, go out for food, or meet the friends you will create during all this time you’ll spend on the island.
The lessons will be most possibly private (one teacher and you). However, very small classes of two or three students may be formed, if there are other students at the same level. After the lesson, you will have the opportunity to practice your Greek and socialize with locals. In the evenings, be prepared to go out, as many times exits occur spontaneously, to the taverns of the area, the cinemas or to events that happen on the island, according to the mood of the people.
You have the following options to participate
- Oct 7 – Nov 29 (8 weeks)
