We are back again!
After two and a half months of physical absence, our school is ready to open again for its teachers and students, while taking of course all the necessary measures for the protection and safety of all of us. Hopefully, we will also be able to start our rich cultural activities soon. Thank you very much for your interest and all your messages, but also for your understanding and willingness to adapt to an online learning environment for those who prefer live teaching. We are waiting for you with our fresh ideas and a lot of appetite to discover together the secrets of our language and culture! We missed you so much!
Until we meet again, take care
As probably most of you already know, our school remains closed, just like the majority of the companies in Greece, due to the emergency measures taken against the coronavirus. Our cultural activities have stopped as well, due to the same reason. Thank you very much for your interest and all your messages. We are fine and healthy and we continue the work we love doing, but only via Skype. We miss a lot of moments from our work! The joy of teaching, the interaction with all of you, the possibility to discover new worlds, our walks through the streets of our city, the guided tours, the cooking classes, our language games, the chance to discuss with you all the issues we love, the joy of finding common interests with people from the other side of the ocean. Perhaps the thing we miss the most is just a simple mutlilingual “tsipouraki” after a demanding day! Until we meet again in order to discover together the secrets of our language and our culture, be safe and take care! We hope that we will be able to see each other soon! We are always at your disposal online!

Merry Christmas with a traditional Greek meal!
Is there a better way to say goodbye 2019? We explored the gastronomic wealth of Greece through an interactive cooking class along with a distinguished chef. We discussed about the Greek Christmas customs, the traditions and the recipes from all over the world!

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.
