About us

Lydia Vadaraki


I am based in the northern suburbs of Athens, my hometown and the place where I’ve spent my entire life. My deep-rooted passion for Greek language and literature led me to pursue a degree in Greek Philology at the National University of Athens.

My professional journey as a Modern Greek language teacher for adult learners began in 2014, and since then, I’ve had the privilege of working with a diverse range of students and institutions. Over the years, I’ve collaborated with Greek schools, embassies, and international companies, assisting their executives based in Athens in mastering the Greek language.

In 2019, I took a significant step in my career by founding ‘Oh my sweet Greece.’ This venture is dedicated to helping adult learners communicate effectively in Greek, using meticulously crafted educational materials that engage them both cognitively and emotionally.

In 2022, I expanded my academic horizons and earned a Master’s degree in Analysis and Teaching Methods for both first and second/foreign languages. My Master’s thesis delved into innovative methods that enhance the development of effective language learning materials.

I’m dedicated to the mission of bridging language and culture, helping individuals connect with the beauty of the Greek language and the richness of Greek literature

Born and raised in Athens, I fell in love with the Greek language, literature and culture during my school years and participated in plenty of projects and activities related to Greek language and heritance. Following my passion I studied Greek Philology at the National University of Athens. I have been teaching Modern and Ancient Greek language and literature since 2017 and I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with my students. 

This is the reason why I fully embrace the communicative and humanistic approach in language learning that Oh my sweet Greece is build on and I consider it to be the best and most effective way to learn a new language; engaging the student cognitively and emotionally.
