Speak and philosophize in Classical Greek

21st Anniversary Celebration

03rd August-17th August

Travel to Greece and improve and deepen your knowledge of Attic Greek. Which friend of Hellas wouldn’t be tempted? In the entire world there is only one opportunity to do so.
Students from many countries and backgrounds assemble in a large, shady garden on the rocky shores of the Gulf of Corinth and discover to their surprise that they can converse, read and discuss stimulating ancient texts all in the language of ancient Greece. 

The seminar, a project of the Hellenikon Idyllion, has been offered by the center's founder Andreas Drekis for twenty years as a special opportunity for students of ancient Greek. His hotel also hosts musicians and artists, whose concerts and performances enliven many an evening. A short trip to see objects of interest and a production in an ancient theatre is also possible.
The Hellenikon Idyllion is located on the north coast of the Peloponnese near Aigion, a Greek vacation destination thanks to its particularly alluring and relaxing character. Accommodation is available in rooms with 3-4 beds for student participants. Single and double-bed rooms are also available to adults upon request.

The price for accommodation in the 3-4 bed rooms and for the course is 300,00 EUR. It is a promotion project  of Andreas Drekis, Hellenikon Idyllion

Please register (mandatory and binding) with Prof. Stefano Pagliaroli hypnomachos@libero.it
