Greek courses in Greece, island Ikaria

Help us, spread this page!

Since 1995 we have offered Greek courses in Greece, on the island of Ikaria, for students of all language levels. Many interpreters and translators, diplomats, classicists, university students and teachers have participated in our Greek language courses during all these years. However, the atmosphere in the lessons is very friendly. Students learn through a multitude of language games and activities. Tuition fee from 790€, including accommodation

Ikarian Centre since 1995 has organized intensive Greek courses in Greece, on the island of Ikaria, for Greek language students of all levels. Our Greek lessons are intended for those you would like to learn Greek in Greece, in an immersive Greek language program and for this reason are  looking for:

Small class size: Our classes are even smaller, from 1 to maximum 4 students per class. Therefore, our classes are also very homogeneous. Homogeneous and very small classes make the lessons more intensive and efficient.
Flexible duration: Students may register in a two week course and stop or continue to participate in the courses up to 8 weeks (2 months).
Efficiency: Small and homogeneous classes are helping us to adjust the curriculum according to the students’ needs, and not the opposite. Students have more time to talk and practice in the class. Also, 2 hours tuition per day gives to the students enough time to do their homework and rest. Thus, students attending 2 normal hours / day in our classes have a faster progress than students attending a pre-fixed curriculum, for “4 hours of 45 min” per day, in a class with 5 or 6 more students of different levels.

    • Each course lasts for 2 hours (120 min)/day or 2,66 teaching hours / day. Language schools in Europe calculate the duration of their courses in teaching hours. One teaching hour is equal to 45 minutes. Thus, a four hours lesson is usually lasting 180min.
    • All our summer classes are taking place in open air classrooms, with a fantastic view to the sea and the mountains

Our instructors are experienced teachers of Greek as a foreign language. Grammar and vocabulary are taught through the use of games, texts and other materials written and provided by the Centre. All skills are practiced in our lessons (writing, reading, speaking and listening), however we do focus in oral speech. The small class size (1-4 students / class) ensures that every student will have enough time to speak in the class. Our program focuses on learning the language and NOT on the tourist experience. In every lesson students will be assigned homework for the next day. As most of the locals do not speak only Greek, and since the teachers continue speaking Greek outside of the classroom, students must be prepared to hear and speak a lot of Greek, even if they are beginners. Follow this link for more information about the teaching method.

Out-of-classroom activities (traditional dance lessons, Greek songs, conversation classes, lectures and slide shows, cooking local dishes with people of the village, etc.) and events that happen spontaneously (like going out and eating together) are what make our lessons a truly immersive Greek language program.
