There was a very dynamic and motivated atmosphere in the school. I had a very professional teacher. My accommodation was wonderful and my host family were very nice people.
I really enjoyed the course and the hotel I stayed in was very nice, the family who ran it were very friendly.
My course was very good, as was the teacher. The lessons were not too fast, not too slow. The school itself was very nice. The accommodation was great, a whole house for us, two guests! Lovely.
The course was very interesting and the school was good.
The course was interesting and intensive. The teachers were very nice and good too. Great hotel, comfortable, in the heart of the old town near the port, quiet, and not far from the beach. They had very good breakfasts too.

My Greek experience in Chania!
As a true lover of Crete I just had to visit the islands second largest city, Chania! Chania is a beautiful city divided in the old- and new town, with lots of historical sites in both parts and famous for its lighthouse and harbor.
It was quite late in the evening when I arrived in Chania for the first time. The streets were still very lively and the atmosphere was great. The main square is surrounded by restaurants and taverna’s, where both tourists and locals were enjoying their diner and drinks. We chose to have diner in one of the restaurants near the water, from there we had a perfect view over the traditional and characteristic lighthouse, which lightens up during the evening and night. After having an amazing souvlaki diner and downing the ouzo shots you get if you receive the bill (it is impolite if you don’t drink them, since it is a gift from the restaurant!) we decided to walk around for a bit.
Near the main square you can find an impressive building that has been bombed during the Second World War. In the old town you can find many historical sites that are related to the Second World War. You will also see some Turkish influence, near the harbour you can find a Turkish Mosque that is used as an indoor market and art gallery nowadays.
