"The immersive approach, expert faculty, beautiful setting and wonderful food combined to make this the perfect summer getaway for any avid hellenist."

"My experience this summer with Paideia was incredible, educationally and interpersonally. My Greek improved by leaps and bounds, especially in small group sessions with my instructor. I am very grateful not only to have this spoken Greek experience, but to have it in Greece itself and with so many wonderful and knowledgeable people. "
Danny O. '22
"Living Greek in Greece provides a context for ancient Greek language learning that is not elsewhere replicated. While using spoken pedagogy in modern-day Greece, the world-class teachers nevertheless see the program as a means to unlocking the niche of classical history, poetry and philosophy. "
