On the indicated arrival date (Sunday) of your course, the Omilo team will welcome you at 20.00 in the Syros School, situated at the Echo House in the village of Azolminos, 4km south of the port city of Hermoupolis. You will be introduced to the teachers and other participants, and the program will be explained as well as all the options for the musical or theatre performances in Hermoupolis. At around 21.00 all students are invited to enjoy a tavern meal in a local Greek tavern in Azolimnos; this is included in the course price. It is the perfect moment to get to know the other participants, talk to the teachers, taste Greek food and start communicating in Greek.
The following Monday your Greek classes begin. On the first day of the course, students will be asked to take a brief placement test which will help the team decide which class is best for you. The course materials will be given to you in class and are included in the price.
You will have six days of classes, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and on Friday, Saturday, Sunday. The last day of classes is on Sunday, finishing at 14.00. On Thursday you will have no classes; thus, you will have an opportunity to explore the island, relax on the beach, study your Greek vocabulary or participate in one of the activities on offer.
