“Moussakas” is maybe one of the most famous Greek dishes and one of the most tasty mediterranean flavours. We cook together and we discover at the same time the language that is hidden in our recipes!
Ano Poli…and Rebetiko!
While having a walk to “Ano Poli” with Peek at Greek and Dot2dot you also have the opportunity to discover the history of the district, come in touch with the music of “Rebetiko” and the musician Vassillis Tsitsanis, meet the Balkan architec and enjoy an amazing view. And aaaaall these by learning Greek!
Registrations are open!
As autumn has arrived, we are getting ready for a new, creative year with many surprises. We can’t wait to share with you all of our new ideas, as language teaching is for us something more than just memorising rules and words. We are inviting you to a tour in the language and culture of our country. We enjoy teaching Greek, walking the streets of our country, learning its history, cooking and chatting with locals, as we come into contact with the Greek nature, art and entertainment. We discover together the language that is hidden in our songs, movies, tales and recipes. We come, therefore, out of the limits of the standard class and we learn Greek while traveling, hiking or while making a historic walk. Registrations are open!
Discovering the various types of dance!
Discovering the tradition, the rythms and the various types of dance! The Greek way of entertaining! Students and teachers, we had a great time! Thank you so much Χορόδεντρο! Greek dance (horos) is a very old tradition, being referred to by authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian. There are different styles and interpretations from all of the islands and surrounding mainland areas. Each region formed its own choreography and style to fit in with their own ways. There are over 10,000 traditional dances that come from all regions of Greece. There are also some dances, which have been adopted throughout the Greek world. These include the syrtos, the hasapiko and the hasaposerviko. Traditional Greek dancing has a primarily social function. It brings the community together at key points of the year, such as Easter, the grape harvest or patronal festivals; and at key points in the lives of individuals and families, such as weddings. We learn together the Greek culture and the Greek tradition! Be part of our school! Gepostet von Peek at Greek am Donnerstag, 1. August 2019
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.
