Who we are

Based in Athens and having graduated from the faculty of Greek Philology of the National University of Athens we have a strong academic and pedagogical background in the analysis and teaching of Greek language and literature. 

Our mission is to help adult learners communicate in Greek through materials that inspire them, motivate them and engage them cognitively and emotionally. 

For this reason:

  • we create dialogues and texts that lead to meaningful discussions
  • we make Greek grammar simple
  • we design writing and speaking activities that are fun, engaging and effective

Our approach

Learning Greek through real-life dialogues…

…means that using our imagination our virtual class will turn into a local shop, a picturesque café, a traditional tavern next to the sea or just a friendly get-together. And without fear or rush we will hold our conversations in these situations using authentic language while practising grammar and vocabulary. This way next time you’re here you’ll feel more confident than ever!

Learning Greek through discussions that speak to our minds and hearts…

…means that after building some basic knowledge of Greek your hobbies and interests will function as a guideline for the topics that we will cover in class. This way your world, your ideas, your memories and all these wonderful things that you want to share will motivate you and help you better remember the words that matter to…you! But, learning through discussions that speak to our heart also means that our approach will be humanistic:  Love, choices, friendship, beauty, dreams, motivation, humanistic topics inspired from ancient Greek thought will touch our minds and hearts so that learning Greek becomes an authentic Greek language journey.

Kind words from Oh my sweet Greece students

Lydia is a teacher I completely recommend. Her communicative enthusiasm and various way of teaching makes learning easy, fun and very useful. Since I started the lessons, my everyday life in Greece has really improved, I understand what's going on in daily situations in the shops, interact more easily and completely read greek. Greek is the 4 th language I've learnt and one the most challenging also. I 've experienced various teachers and different ways of learning and Lydia is one of the best I've had, really involved and listening to your actual needs. Thank you Lydia, ευχαριστώ πολύ :)!

“My boyfriend and I decided to move to Greece. And of course it is necessary to learn the local language when living somewhere. Lydia is a very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher with a love for the Greek language. She developed all of her materials herself and they are highly effective!! I started as a complete beginner with no prior knowledge of Greek. After finishing the A1 course with Lydia, I am able to use the Greek language for every day life and hold small talk. I feel like Lydia teaches all aspects of the language well: speaking, reading, writing, and listening.”

After having a close look at your website, I got the impression that you were an eager and very sweet teacher who pulls for her students. And I’m glad to say that I was right! Since I started from scratch I feel I have improved on all aspects. I really enjoy how you adapt grammar into real life situations for your students. You have a common curriculum set for everyone, but the execution is dependent on the topics of natural conversation happening between you and your student.

I enrolled in this course as I've very little experience or confidence in speaking modern Greek. The course was well thought out and constructed. The participants could choose their theme and develop it according to their taste and knowledge of spoken Greek. The idea of recording brief messages was brilliant!! I found that it was a way of identifying the same (annoying) faults we tend to make when trying to speak a new language, and my tutor was great at picking them out and explaining why and how to correct them.
