Last Thursday the Greek Immersion Course students graduated from their course at the Anargyreios School of Spetses and celebrated their success with a Greek party that we will all remember for years!
This was the first time the Greek Online School Immersion Course for adults was hosted at the historic School of Spetses. After 10 days of classes, cultural activities, excursions, and a lot of fun at the cosmopolitan island of Spetses we can safely say that our students got a real taste of Greek island life.
We left Spetses with more than 30 students who felt more confident in their daily interactions in Greek, who made friends that they cannot wait to see again next year, who made new memories in the country of their parents or grandparents and most importantly more than 30 people who learned to love Greek and who want to keep learning Greek.
Apart from daily classes, our program in Spetses included a movie night, a tour of the Bouboulina museum, a cooking class, Greek dance classes, a bicycle tour of Spetses, and a cruise tour around the island.
We would like to thank the Anargyreios School of Spetses for hosting us at the historic boarding school. We would like to thank the people of Spetses for welcoming us and being so incredibly helpful in our efforts to organize everything. We would like to thank the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad & Public Diplomacy as well as the ministry of Tourism.
Above all, we would like to thank this group of 30+ students who traveled all the way to this tiny Greek island to be a part of our Greek language program.
We promise to see you all back in Spetses in June 2023 for more Greek lessons, more Greek adventures, and more Greek memories together. Εις το επανιδείν.
