Guestbook of Greek Language & Culture Centre Lexis
José Luis López Banzo (
Αυτό το καλοκαίρι έμεινα τρεις βδομάδες στα Χανιά να κάνω μαθήματα ελληνικής γλώσσας στο σχολείο Λέξις. Στόχος μου ήτανε να περάσω τις εξετάσεις ελληνικών Β2, και χάρη στη βοήθεια των καθηγητών της Λέξις, πέτυχα.
Θέλω να εκφράσω εδώ την ευγνωμοσύνη για όσους δουλεύουν στο σχολείο, ιδιαίτερα στην Μαρία, ακόμα και στην Κατερίνι, οι οποίες μου παρέδωσαν μαθήματα. Ευχαριστώ για την απασχόλησή σας, για την καλωσύνη σας. Σε λίγες μέρες προχώρησα ταχύτατα και σταθερά. Δεν θα το είχα βγάλει πέρα χωρίς την βοήθειά σας.
Μου άρεσαν πολύ και οι πολιτιστικές δραστηριότητες που διοργανώνει το σχολείο. Πάντα αισθάνθηκα σαν να ήμουν στο δικό μου σπίτι.
I began to learn greek language on my own, long time ago. Afterward I studied in several academies, but, without a doubt, Lexis is the best greek language’s school I ever knew, and I hope to repeat.
Thanks a lot.

Harald Helmreich (
): Greek Course
It was in the first weeks of September 2015 that I followed a course of Greek for beginners. We were only three students so that the studies were particularly intense. Maria was an outstanding teacher for all of us in the sense that we not only made considerable progress in our ability to speak and to understand the language but also in the sensitive way in which she created a very positive atmosphere in the little group. In my judgment you cannot have a better introduction into language and culture.

I had been studied Greek for a year or so before attending a two-week course at Lexis and I have to say that it was an unforgettable experience. The teachers try to taylor-make the lessons according to the level and interests of the students. They also plan extra activities which help the people deep diving in the Greek culture. I have to mention especially the movie collection which I appreciated a lot.
I strongly recommend to attend a course here if you whish to speak Greek (and not only learn, but speak.
Ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ Ζενοβία, Βαγγελιό, Μαρία και Καρολίνα. Ελπίζω να σας δω σύντομα.

): Thank you!
Ευχαριστώ πολύ για κάθε πράγμα στο σχολείο. Δεν ξέρω πως μπορώ να εκφράσω τις ευχαριστίες μου. Το σχολείο είναι τέλειο, τα μαθήματα είναι διασκεδαστικά και χρήσιμα, οι καθηγήτριες είναι καλοκαρδές, καλλονές!Οργανώνουν πολλές δραστηριότητες – μουσείο, ταβέρνα, δημοτικοί χοροί και μάλιστα μαγειρέψαμε το ελληνικό πιάτο! Η θέα από το σχολείο είναι θαυμάσια, υπέροχη! Κοντά στο σχολείο βρίσκεται ένα καφενείο, που μπορείτε να φάτε νόστιμες και φρέσκες τυρόπιτες και πιείτε ένα φλιτζάνι αληθινού ελληνικού καφέ! Μου άρεσα πολύ αυτό το σχολείο!
Πραγματικά στα Χανιά υπάρχουν πολλά αξιοθέατα και όμορφα μέρη!
Ιδιαίτερα ευχαριστώ την καθηγήτρια μου – Ζηνοβία για κάθε τέλειο μάθημα που είχαμε μαζί και πολλές νέες γνώσες!
Με εκτίμηση, Αγγελίνα

Colin Dixon (
): Accelerated Greek!
This is a really special place. I've been learning Greek for five years, and I ran out of textbooks a long time ago. For several years I've been coming here for individual lessons, and each time my Greek accelerates noticeably. I want to speak authentic everyday Greek, but also to discuss professional, social and historical topics in 'higher register' Greek.
My teachers here are not only great language teachers, but also great conversationalists - always prepared with interesting topics, and always able to anticipate where I might want to go. Time flies, but I always feel like I've worked hard, in a satisfying (not tiring) way.
Added to this, Chania is the perfect place to study. Not only is it beautiful, but the scale of the place makes it easy to just wander around, listening to Greek language all around you, and trying out new vocabulary.

B. Moser + K. Fuhrer
We spent two weeks at Lexis Centre and had a really good experience there. We were part of a group of 3 or 4 persons aged between 40 and 60 years following an intensive course at intermediate level. 4 lessons a day were quite much, since we got homework in addition. Serious learning also means a review of what already has been done, which takes time as well which you might miss for visits of beautiful and appealing Chania.
Zinobía was our teacher. This friendly young mother taught us the secrets of Greek pronounciation, orthography and grammar. She was very good in finding descriptions and forming examples. Besides the lessons we visited a museum and were invited by the school to a joined dinner where we shared very fine lokal dishes. Another day all pupils were cooking a Greek meal together. The owner of the school works also as teacher (and cook!). We can recommand this school to students of all levels of knowledge.

Tanja Bole (
): A great experience in Chanià!
The Lexis school was a pleasant surprise for me as I arrived in Chania this summer. I was in Crete for the first time, alone, and I found in the school a friendly atmosphere with many young teachers always willing to help and make you feel "home". The intensive course I followed was held by a high educated teacher, the lessons were very interesting, intercative, and of high quality. In the 3 weeks I spent in Chanià the school organized many recreative activities (cooking days, dinners, visit to the old city, arch.museum and art gallery etc.) so I was always in touch with other courses' students, coming from all over Europe, exchanging experiences and having fun together. Overall I advice this school to everyone who wants to learn modern Greek but at the same time spend holidays in a place rich with history, where nature is marvellous, and people are joyful and openhearted. For sure I will come back next year!
