If you're planning a holiday in Greece, are interested in the Modern Greek language and culture or just want to dispel the myth that the Greek alphabet is difficult to learn, do join us in this immersive workshop where you'll learn to read in Greek, to greet people and to order the most delicious food and drinks.
At lunchtime be ready to form a team and play a 'pub quiz' with information and curiosities about so many aspects of Greece - history, geography, architecture, traditions, cuisine...
After such a fun-packed day full of interactive activities, you won't say "It's all Greek to me" ever again!
Suitable for Absolute Beginners.
