Our Language School is fully Licensed-Registered-ISO 9001, with certified teachers. The Linguistic Lab – Language & Beyond! The Linguistic Lab (LL) initially started out as an English Language School by Labis Filis, a graduate of Indiana University in Economics & Business management. Upon his return home to the beautiful coastal area of Xylokastro-Greece the locals would bring their kids to Labis for help with their English language studies. After his army service, he officially established The Linguistic Lab in 1989 which soon became a very successful endeavor with 3 area brunches. Licensed – ISO 9001 – Registered, with personal care, native English-speaking certified teachers, inspiring classroom settings equipped with today’s technology, and involved in the community, LL has gained a special niche over the plethora of large language chains. Highly respected in its surroundings, the school runs year-round and incorporates a curriculum from Kindergarten to Proficiency levels. To further enhance the school’s mission (and due to Greece’s lack of an actual student exchange program), Labis launched the Home-Stay Program where English-speaking students stay with selected host families whose kids want to practice their English – a successful win-win awareness exchange! A spirit of progress and personal growth, Labis also sponsors awareness & outreach in the community by engaging guest-speakers on pertinent educational issues for both parents and kids (from children’s psychology to environmental practices, etc.). It suffices to say that The Linguistic Lab practices a positive awareness education that is beyond language. In retrospect, LL added the Greek Language & Culture Program fulfilling our Omogeneia’s inquiries – Greeks abroad who want [their kids] to enhance their Greek language and culture. With the school setting and the home-stay program running, we are honored to accommodate this special inquiry. The Omogeneia program is available year-round in either Home-stay or Group-guided arrangements (non-Greeks welcome). Easter in rural Greece is a spiritual & cultural wonder! This program is a heart-warming experience on both sides! Further, in lieu of parents’ inquiries, LL is now hosting an Adults Program for anyone wanting a local interaction in their travels, enhancing their experience and knowledge. This program is available year-round, only for groups. We are proud to celebrate the Greek language & culture with you personally! We have appropriately named our “beyond language” programs: ARISTONAUTS – different by design! By mission, it’s not just a tour. It’s a vacation, it’s an education, it’s hands-on interactions, in a celebration of Greek language and culture – exploring the helix of time to develop knowledge–wisdom–truth. All programs include ground-transportations, accommodations, meals, site-tours, plus a multitude of things to do. All programs incorporate either language lessons by the option, available to anyone. See pertinent pages for details. With Greece’s financial crisis there has never been a better time to visit. Come, explore with us – BE AN ARISTONAUT!!! OFFER: FOR EACH 10 PARTICIPANTS, ONE IS OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE!
My short time in Xylokastro was spent with Labis Filis. He explained the history of the school as well as his experiences as a teacher. Labis also showed my friend and I each location. more
