Excellent course for those with little or no Greek and, in addition to teaching the Greek alphabet and basic grammar rules, covered everything you would expect to need during a holiday or visit to Greece or Cyprus. The course is intensive but produces results. The tutor was friendly, helpful, enthusiastic, patient and very well-prepared. I would strongly recommend this course and this excellent tutor.
