LEARNING A LANGUAGE IS AN INVESTMENT INTO YOURSELF

As many languages you know, as many times you are a human being.

– Czech Proverb by Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk. It refers not just to the ability to communicate in different languages, but also the ability to share in various spiritual spheres of different cultures.

WHY NOT LEARN GREEK … IN GREECE?

Chrisoula in Sounion

At Celebrate LIFE Greektreats we create the opportunity for you as a participant to learn to communicate in Modern Greek with ease in a safe space with the guidance and support of an experienced and fully qualified native Greek teacher. The focus is on communication in Greek through fun role-plays, getting immersed in the culture by coming closer to the richness of Greek history, gastronomy and culture.

Chrisoula’s approach combines practical methods with the motivation for her clients to invest in developing their language and cultural skills while deeply appreciating their personal interests and travel styles.

Learning a language in its natural environment and setting with real interactions and immersion in the culture and lifestyle of people is the best “medicine” you can take if you truly want to accelerate your language learning and make progress naturally and effectively.

An interactive experience …

In our GreekTreat™ experiences, our key approach is to integrate the Greek language into real life contexts and cultural experiences focusing with both our body and mind. It is an interactive experience because language is communication. We explore and embrace connections with real local people, sensations, smiles, gestures, smells, tastes, feeling alive, taking in the beauty of the place and allowing some stillness in our lives.

So how does it actually work?

Chrisoula, personally selects a range of meaningful scenarios for you, she guides you and teaches you key vocabulary, phrases and skills you practise within the circle and in your social interactions with the locals while reading the menu, ordering food and drinks, purchasing something for you and your family or while exploring sights of cultural interest or walking and enjoying blue skies and the abundance of the blue Mediterranean sea.

A joyful and uplifting experience.

You have lots of fun, gradually feeling at ease with the new language and be able to celebrate your mini victories from introducing yourselves to new people, ordering snacks and drinks, paying for the bill, asking the way and reading signs in Greek. What an achievement this is!

What can you do next …?

For those Greek language and culture enthusiasts of the group who wish to make even further progress, optional private or group language sessions will be arranged with a Native speaker and an experienced and qualified teacher of Modern Greek.

Contact Chrisoula or Call 07766 052060 for an initial conversation to ask questions and establish your needs and times when you wish to pursue with the idea of investing in learning a language, a very rewarding and uplifting experience.
