Good news!  Καλά νέα! After several months of hard work, the Omilo teachers Konstantinos and Terpsi now completed the useful workbook for Beginners Levels in Greek.

This eBook is the companion workbook to the easy reader ‘Λυδία: Ένα καλοκαίρι στην Ελλάδα!’ (Lydia: A summer in Greece!).

The workbook is intended for those who have already purchased the easy reader and wish to get the most out of it, going beyond a simple reading (and listening) of the story!

Update #4 – from Greece: “We will start teaching in Greece from July”

Τι κάνετε;  Καλό Καλοκαίρι!
How are you?  Hope all is OK and we wish you a nice, sunny as well as healthy, summer.

Maybe this year it will be not a “Greek summer” for many of you, because of too many travel complications? We understand!

For those that did decide to travel to Greece, even when it is not that comfortable as other years,  we wish you a great Greek holiday.
For those that registered for an Omilo course in Syros, we are looking forward to welcoming you soon.

After our update of a month ago, we have received several essays about your “corona story”, from all over the world. They are now all added to one blog article, and corrected (although there were very minor mistakes, so congratulations to all of you for the beautiful writing!)

We hope the stories will now soon change, and you will get a break from the corona measures.

So how things are organized in Greece?

How Omilo Students Witnessed The Corona Months…

On May 2nd, 2020, we wrote an update email, on how Omilo is dealing with the corona crisis, as well as the situation in Greece. We also suggested to our students, from all over the world,  to write their “story”, on how they deal with the corona months, at home.

We are happy many students wrote to us, in Greek or English. Here below you find the (corrected) Greek stories that were sent to us, as well as some English versions:

Corona update #3 from Greece – We wish you a beautiful and healthy month of May!

Τι κάνετε;  Καλό μήνα! We wish you a nice, as well as healthy, month of May.

Six “corona weeks” have passed…and even in corona-times, time flies!

The Omilo-team is well and continues working as before.
The teachers are teaching online Skype or Zoom lessons to several students and making more online materials, Maya is taking care of answering emails, dealing with all the cancellations, social media posts, newsletters, updating the websites (omilo.com as well as masaresi.com), and Dimitris is busy with managing and organizing the new online group courses,  as well as making the financial plans of “saving” the business! Omilo always operated as a  “team”, and remains a”team” 🙂

In the meantime, unfortunately, also the students of the Lefkada course are not able to travel to or within Greece or stay in a hotel on the island,  so our 4th intensive 2020 course, can not take place in Greece. We are heartbroken, but we stay optimistic and adapt; we are proud that we are now also ready to offer the “Online Greek Language and Culture course”, online! It will be different, but fun, and as educational as ever.

Χαίρετε!

First of all, and most importantly, we wish you very good health! Υγεία να υπάρχει!
We have gotten many emails over the past few weeks asking us what we are doing about the whole Coronavirus crisis, and how we deal with it, so we thought to write an article about it.

People learning Greek, as a hobby,  are really special, and you do not meet them every day! However, Omilo was founded in 1996 and has welcomed so many students from every corner in the world, all wanting to learn Greek.
Over the years, we have heard the most amazing reasons why somebody wants to learn Greek, which we could never have imagined 🙂

Here below you can read a nice & true story,  written by Lesley: “How I heard about Omilo… and then registered immediately!”
Her story was sent to Omilo through our Essay Competition in 2015.
