Language holiday in Greece is a fun way to combine Greek language courses and holidays. Due to the popularity of this holiday type, there are Greek language courses for foreigners in many parts of the country, from popular destinations such as Crete, Lefkada, Paros, and Athens, to fewer tourist places including Andros, Chios, Ikaria, Kavala, and Syros.
These language holidays in Greece usually take place in tourist season but intensive courses may also be organized during winter. Levels vary from beginners to specific language courses, such as courses for archaeologists and classicists. These language holiday packages usually include accommodation and cultural tours or other activities in the region.
