Agata – It all began with Agata. She is the founder of the school. She is passionate about Greek and created the ‘Greek Freaks’ blog and the OdkryjGrecje.pl portal. Agata is a Modern Greek and English philologist and linguist with pedagogical qualifications and over 10 years of experience in teaching foreign languages.

“My favouriste form of teaching is through Skype. It allows you to save time and money and offers the comfort and flexibility of studying whenever you have some free time. I recently discovered online group courses, which allow people throughout Poland and all over the world to study Greek together.”
Myrto – Graduate of Greek Philology Master in Teaching Greek as a second/foreign language at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
Myrto lives in Athens and teaches adults and children at all levels. During her Erasmus period in Sweden she realised how much she loves the multicultural environment. She also started teaching some Swedes the Greek Language and the feeling was great, so she turned her hobby into a profession, by deciding to do this Master. That is why she loves her job.
From then on, she has taught many people the Greek Language. During her internship at the University, her students have been people of various nationalities, Erasmus students and students from all over the world. She continued to teach the Greek Language at the Modern Greek Language Teaching Centre of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens and now she gives lessons through skype. She enjoys that, because of the amazing possibilities the technology provides to students and teachers.
She is passionate about foreign languages, so she speaks English, German, Swedish and Italian. She also loves the research, so she never stops doing research and speaking in conferences on Linguistics. Her main research interests include the importance of Pragmatics in teaching Greek as a second/ foreign Language.
