Celebrate New Year in Athens while learning Greek

New Year Course

Do you also dream of celebrating New Year in Greece? What about exploring Athens during the festive days between Christmas and New Year, while you practice speaking Greek, attending cultural life and making friends.

Omilo’s New Year Course:  Wednesday 27/12/17 till Monday 01/01/2018

Every nation has different ways to celebrate New Year. Also in Greece, there are many traditions related to Christmas and New Year. For the 5th year in a row, the Omilo-team is looking forward to welcome students and celebrate together. During this course you will not only learn a lot of Greek, but you will be able to put the theory in practice during the afternoon activities and celebrate together with the Greeks.
