The intensive Greek-language courses for non-native speakers are offered under the supervision of the Hellenic Culture Center, a well-known Greek language institution. The courses are intended for students of all levels and include special programs for professionals.

The courses have been approved for the Comenius-Grundtvig Training Database for individual in-service training grants. Persons interested may apply for a grant to cover their expenses.

The presentations and the cooking, dance, singing and Greek-language lessons are held at the Zaira Hotel at Skala Loutron, 8 km from Mytilene, the capital of the island. Courses begin in June and wind up at the end of August. Rates start at 400 euros for one week (30 hours) and 750 euros for two weeks (60 hours).
