Student reviews & feedback

I had individual lessons since there was no one else on my level (C1). The teacher was perfect, very well trained, spoke excellent English and German and was a wonderful person.

The Kleanthi Apartments were clean and well furnished. It is perfectly situated between school (7 minutes to walk) and the sea (right across the street).

Very good, friendly staff. I received 1 week 4 hr lessons with other students and 1 week of 2hr private lessons geared towards my level. Some extracurricular activities were once a week greek dance class, a dinner together, and a show about Minoan culture.

Was housed in Villa Katerina, bed and breakfast. A lovely place, close to the school. The owners, Dora and her mother are lovely people, they made me feel like home. Room tastefully decorated.

Very friendly and helpful staff. It was very hard work, partly due to the fact that there were only two students in our class but there's nothing that can be done about that. There was an excellent range of extra curricular activities.

I was pleased wih the school. Chania is always worth a visit, especially the old town. The teachers as well as the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Generally speaking, I simply like the greek people. Crete is a beautiful island. I would recommend a language course in Chania. After completion of school one should take some time to explore this beautiful island.

My daughter and I learned a lot within just 2 weeks. I discovered that Greek is a difficult language. I enjoyed the other students. The teacher invested a lot of energy and made the classes fun.

The course was fun with a very good teacher, I learned a lot. Nice to study in the same country as the language I was learning. I was staying in a hotel called Royal sun in chania. It was amazing. Good staff and beautiful view over Chania city.

The lessons could not have been better, I learnt more in 2 weeks than I would have learnt in months at an evening class at home. The teacher was very competent and a very nice person. The hotel was good, the location excellent, breakfast poor.

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. Read more...
