Andrioti School is located at the charming and quiet suburb of Corfu town, Garitsa, a minute’s walk from the picturesque Garitsa Bay. It is within walking distance from the historical centre of the town, and minutes away from the airport, which makes it easily accessible to everyone.
I had initially signed for an intermediate group class, but, unfortunately, when I got to Corfu, I was informed that the other members of the group had cancelled last minute, which didn't feel like a good start. However, the teacher, Vassilki, really did all her best to compensate for that and I received private lessons during the whole week which really helped me advance more quickly than I probably would have in the group. She really understood my needs and provided a lot of information which will help me in the future. I maybe missed having more of a chance to speak with people at my level. The last part every morning was dedicated to Greek culture lectures, but since the rest of the students were from the starting level, they had to be done in English, while I would have liked to have a bit more of Greek there too. Still, they were very enjoyable, the same as the full day cultural trip we did in Corfu town, including a lovely lunch by the sea. In all, I have to say that it was a lovely experience, even if it was not exactly what I had signed for. I would certainly recommend Andrioti school for Greek courses in a beautiful environment such as Corfu.Show details » Read more...

It was lovely meeting you and I hope we see you again in one of our next courses.
Να περνάς πολύ καλά!
The classes are well equipped and the excellent and friendly teachers make the lessons very understandable and so interesting that a course is definitely worth ist.
The location and the equipment fit well.
The City tour was also a highlight in the "School week".
My hotel was not far from the school an so within a short time on foot easily accessible.
Franz it was a pleasure having you in our class! I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Corfu and Andrioti School. I do hope we see you again soon! Keep up the great work!
I very much enjoyed the course I undertook at Andrioti School and found it a useful introduction to Greek languageShow details » Read more...
Thank you Tracey! It's been great meeting you! I''m glad we've been able to help you with starting off this journey to Greek language & culture!
Teachers fine. Maybe more small dialogue, because the level of the 'students' was different, but then the adjustment was quickly done. Location fine, facilities adeguate, activities very interesting, housing I took care by myself.
As I said, I would have liked to have the possibility to use the Greek language with the others and the teachers in small dialogues.
Thank you for your constructive feedback! We do hope we see you again in one of our future courses!
I had a great experience . The teacher was very qualified
She had the ability to speak mostly Greek but integrating just enough English
to make sure that everyone in the class was following.
It was challenging but rewarding. I realized my understanding is much better.
The school is very professional and personal at the same time.
The day out was also fabulous. I live in Corfu for a couple of years but yet rediscovered the magic of the Old Town .
That was a gift
I would come again for more intensive
Thank you for the review! We do hope we see you in one of our classes again soon! Keep practising!
Everything was really good. My congratulations to Andrioti School. Excellent !!!!!!!!!Show details » Read more...
Υοu've been an absolute pleasure to teach! Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future!
My young teacher was a very nice and competent person who explained the complicated Greek grammar in a way which is easily understood. The lessons were interesting and varied. As there were no other students at that time I took classes because of the season, there were no social activities which I missed but which is understandable. I am very pleased to have improved my language skills in one week.Show details » Read more...
Adelheid has been a pleasure to meet and teach!
Thank you for your kind words. Your passion for learning and your hard work has been an inspiration to us all! We hope to see you again soon in one of our summer programmes so that you can enjoy all the extra activities we organise for our students!
The few days I spent at Andrioti School were lovely. The location of the school is at the center so walking to and from the town was convenient, and the classrooms were very clean and well equipped. The staff I met couldn't have been nicer.
We had morning sessions with a small group which worked well, although the group's abilities seemed quite mixed.
We covered quite a lot of grammar and I would like to continue my studies by leaning to use more varied vocabulary, perhaps through sentence construction and repeating exercises, to make my overall conversation skills better.
All in all, it was a really happy place to study.
Thank you for your kind words! We look forward to welcoming you to our school again soon!
I spent two weeks there, the first week being private lessons with Vasiliki, and on the second week was a cultural class given by Vasiliki.
The private lessons went very well. Our objective was to understand more of the conjugation of Greek verbs, and this was achieved. It helped a lot that Vasiliki was willing to read and correct the small compositions I made to exercise my new knowledge.
The second week was very enjoyable, but less useful for learning Greek. This was partly because the class members had such different prior experience since the course was intended to be as much cultural as language learning, and because there was insufficient class participation. I suggested to Vasiliki that she should increase the participation, and she tried to do so.
I think that finding ways of getting more class participation is the key to turning your good teaching into excellent. Even having class members simply read a text is better than letting them sit as passive recipients.
Thank you for your constructive feedback Tony! I hope we'll see you both again in the near future. Till then ...
Teachers were all very friendly, loving and caring. My daughter liked all of them. At the age of seven she managed to make friends with other children at school. Now she really enjoys writing letters to them and even sends presents to them.
The atmosphere was really friendly there!
The location was perfect as the school is situated within walking distance from the historical center of the town and you can get there easily by bus from any part of the island.
The classrooms were modern and air-conditioned. There is a library and you can borrow any book you like there.
We attended Open Days in June, 2015 and we took part in different activities. They offered different variations and levels of the language.
I have never seen such teachers! The teachers who love children so much!
Thank you for your positive feedback! I do hope we can teach your daughter again soon!
I am fully satisfied.
Excellent method and high professionalism. Courteous and helpfull teachers.
Thank you for your kind words Andrea! I'm glad you enjoyed your course with us!
They had a very professional and organized approach. The teachers were very good and the structure of the teaching was very rewarding. It helped me improve my English standard and prepared me for the high standard academic English I was going to follow during the first year of my studies in England. The location was very near my home. The staff was polite and helpful.Show details » Read more...
