What about Check-in – Check-out of the students?
We are expecting our students to arrive one day before the lesson starts, and leave the day after the end of the lessons. If you have to come earlier or leave later, please contact us.
What about my level? Will you have a group for me?
Each class contains from 1 to maximum 4 students. Classes are formed after the arrival of the students in Ikaria, according to the students’ real needs. However, it would be useful for us if you could send us the a test than can help us to estimate your level long before you arrive on the island. You’ll receive the test after your enrollment in a course.
When do we have lessons during the week / day?
We give lessons from Monday to Friday. Lessons on Monday are taking place in the afternoon – evening, so students may arrive even on Monday. During the rest of the week the courses take place in the morning.
How a typical day looks like?
In the morning and early afternoon you have plenty of time to participate in the lesson, have some rest and finish your homework. From 15:00 – 18:00 we organize short visits to nearby beaches and villages for the people who want to go for lunch, shopping or swim. In the evening we organize various activities at the centre, like traditional dance courses, slideshows, cooking evenings, we learn greek songs etc. Many times teachers and students go out after the activities, for some food, drink and chat in the nearby taverns.
Will you pick me up from the airport or the port?
We’ll pick you up for free from the port of Evdilos any time of the day or night, although you might wait for us for a while. We can send you a taxi to pick you up from the airport or the port of Agios Kirikos. The taxi fare is about 50 € (1 hour driving). There is no bus service from the airport. From the port of Agios Kirikos there bus service during some periods of the year
Do I need to rent a car?
We arrange a few excursions on the island and daily local transport to nearby beaches and villages, for swim and food, with our own vehicles. However, if you like to be more independent you can rend a car or a scooter. You can find a car or a scooter after your arrival, unless if you are planning to come to Ikaria between July 20th & August 30th. During this period of time, it’s wise to reserve a car or a scooter in advance
What to bring with me?
Hiking shoes is a good idea, if you want to walk on the mountains. Also a smartphone or a tablet / computer, something you can use to connect yourself to the internet and listen to audio files. A towel for the beach is necessary, if you want to swim. Linen are provided by us, if you have reserved accommodation in our guest house.
