The Alexandria Institute program is a fantastic way to study Greek. It offers solid grammatical information interwoven with stories and songs that bring the language to life. Andreas’ knowledge of local Chios history and the larger span of Greek history is vast and he gives generously of his wisdom. Emmi offered us many insights into everyday life in Greece and introduced us to the words that make up the interactions we can expect to have with others as we live and travel in Greece. Together they demonstrate exceptional skills as highly trained teachers, able to adapt the lessons to meet the needs of each student. All of this was part of a schedule that took us out of the classroom into the beauty of Chios where we experienced the best the island has to offer. Swimming, delicious traditional food and visits to historic sites enriched the program. And best of all, everything was seasoned with laugher and merriment. As a professional teacher I recommend these programs as some of the best I have experienced and I hope to continue my studies with Alexandria Institute in the future!
