Learn Greek while exploring Chios

Alexandria Institute organizes a Modern Greek language and culture course for all levels on Chios, one of the most distinctive islands in the Aegean. Courses take place at Easter, in June and in September. Students can enroll for an one-week, two-week, three-week or four-week course, depending on the availability.

Our school offers intensive courses at basic, intermediate and advanced levels. Classes aim to help students develop all language skills, while priority is given to speaking as well as verbal comprehension in a multitude of communicative scenarios.

Emphasis is placed on acquainting participants with the Greek culture: local tradition and customs, everyday activities, Greek music, literature, mythology and history are an integral part of the course. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the island’s ancient and medieval history, the Byzantine mosaics in Nea Moni monastery, the medieval mastic villages as well as Kambos fruit orchards. What’s more, they will get to taste the exclusive Chian mastic as well as other distinctive flavours and aromas

New Greek literature & culture course: Volissos village 04/08 -11/08/24

Volissos village (Chios island) Greek literature and culture

Aimed at participants from level B1 upwards that would like to become familiar with the most representative works of Modern Greek literature and culture. A selection of literary texts and works of art is presented within a historical and cultural context and are used as a basis for study and discussion. The course deals with the principal literary periods. Students are given the opportunity to delve deeper into the Greek language and culture by commenting on the language linguistically processing the texts and commenting on them.

The curriculum can be arranged in a way that suits the students’ needs and preferences. For instance, priority can be given to the works of one writer, one specific book, or a certain literary era or genre, e.g. poetry, short stories or novels.

Students particularly keen on literature, arts, history and traditions, who wish to either familiarize themselves with Greek culture or explore it more exhaustively, will certainly find this specific course ideal.

Why sign up for Chios courses?

Chios is a unique place, attractive to visitors all year round. Our students will not only have the chance to learn Greek but also experience the many islands’ unique Easter customs. The most characteristic is Holy Saturday’s rocketwar: two churches “attack” one another by firing rockets, creating a spectacular show. 

In summer, Chios oozes mastic, a unique product both in terms of domestic and international trade. Turquoise dappled waters and a myriad of local customs and copious cultural heritage invite you to a fascinating trip we can take together!
Join our group and share your passion for Greek language and culture with students from all over the world!

Our courses include:

In case attendance is greater than expected, further excursions and tour guides may be added. The original itinerary may have to be modified, in response to unexpected weather conditions or in function of local events. A minimum attendance of three students is required for the cultural and social activities to take place.
