Markets, flavors and history of Thessaloniki…
Thessaloniki was always a multicultural, multiethnic and multilingual city with a lot of customs, religions, traditions and recipies. Many of these multicultural flavors and products survive even today. What can we discover with a walk in the city center? What is hidden in the old markets? What flavors can we try? What do these flavors tell us about the history of the city? We are walking through the old neighbourhoods of the city with our amazing colleagues Dot2dot discovering the secrets of Thessaloniki. We learn Greek our way!
We welcome autumn with a tour of the “Eksohes District”…
Which was the “Eksohes District”? Which is the history of the old city’s tram? What does “Depot” mean? Who were the Allattinis? What can a brick tell us about the history of Thessaloniki? What are all these impressive buildings in the east of the city and what secrets do they hide? We put on our headphones, keep the necessary distance and welcome autumn with a unique tour together with the Dot2dot team of course.We learn Greek in the most creative ways while having lots of fun!
Registrations are open!
As September has arrived, we are getting ready for a new, creative year with many surprises, taking of course all the necessary measures for the protection and safety of all of us. We can’t wait to share with you all of our new ideas, as language teaching is for us something more than just memorising rules and words. We are inviting you to a tour in the language and culture of our country. We enjoy teaching Greek, walking the streets of our country, learning its history, cooking and chatting with locals, as we come into contact with the Greek nature, art and entertainment. We discover together the language that is hidden in our songs, movies, tales and recipes. We come, therefore, out of the limits of the standard class and we learn Greek while traveling, hiking or while making a historic walk.
We play, laugh and learn Greek!
We play, laugh and learn Greek in the most incredible and funny ways! We learn Greek through innovative language teaching methods while we are getting ready for our holidays in Greece!
Said about us
I’m not sure how to succinctly say all of the wonderful things I would like to express about this language school and its teachers – but I am so grateful to have found them and to now consider them friends! Thank you Peek at Greek!
They clearly have a passion for linguistics, and don’t just teach you vocabulary but truly facilitate a deep understanding of the language and the country. They are intentional about connecting people and respecting the different traditions of Greece while also welcoming newcomers and honoring diversity and global perspectives.
The lessons were perfectly tailored to our wants, needs and level.
