I have a Bachelor’s degree in Greek Philology, University of Athens and an MA in e-Learning. I have taught Modern and Ancient Greek in Greece for the past 4 years but I became fascinated with the idea of teaching Modern Greek as a second or foreign language when I realised that so many people are interested in learning it. I am so excited to share my knowledge of Modern Greek with people all over the world, from my city Chania, in Crete.
