Walking through the old markets of our city…
We love to teach Greek by walking through the old districts of our city, learning the history of the old markets and experiencing a variety of gastronomic treasures! We love to explain the present time by talking for the multicultural past. We combine our love of language with our love for every element of our history and culture!
Learning Greek out of the standard class
We love to come out of the limits of the standard class and we learn Greek while making a historic walk, meeting locals and discussing several topics! Language is everywhere! With Dot2dot, our favourite guides!
Discovering the gastronomic culture of Greece!
We love to discover the gastronomic culture of Greece trying several tastes, smelling different herbs, learning new recipes! We learn the language that is hidden behind! We have a lot of fun! Thank you Ammon Express

Said about us
I’m not sure how to succinctly say all of the wonderful things I would like to express about this language school and its teachers – but I am so grateful to have found them and to now consider them friends! Thank you Peek at Greek!
They clearly have a passion for linguistics, and don’t just teach you vocabulary but truly facilitate a deep understanding of the language and the country. They are intentional about connecting people and respecting the different traditions of Greece while also welcoming newcomers and honoring diversity and global perspectives.
The lessons were perfectly tailored to our wants, needs and level.
