My name is Lydia Vadaraki and I’m a teacher of modern Greek as a foreign language based in Athens, my homeland.
I founded Oh my sweet Greece in order to help beginner and intermediate Greek language students to communicate better in Greek through:
– free podcasts and social media posts about spoken Greek and spoken Grammar
– online and face-to-face courses in my beloved city, Athens
– online programs that help students improve their speaking and grammar skills at the same time
Oh my sweet Greece: The story behind
In January 2019 a big dream became true.
Oh my sweet Greece went live.
Soon after I started teaching Greek as a foreign language I was dreaming of an online space infused with a Greek aroma where people could come closer to Greek language, culture and beauty.
For me, learning a foreign language is not memorizing innumerous words or only doing “fill in the gaps” activities in black and white pages. It’s delving into the beauty of the foreign culture and language and becoming a part of it by communicating, listening to real-life dialogues, learning about the culture and practicing grammar through conversation.
Since January 2019 more than 500 people have become part of this active, online community and I’m more than happy to see that we all share the same approach.
My working space: white, blue and olive green
