Throwback! Learning Modern Greek
My Greek teacher, Marinetta Papahimona, ever the inspirational woman that she is, keeps the faith. As we learn more Greek and start to turn on autopilot, droning on in our little dialogues about going to the beach on the weekend and ordering at a restaurant, we are more concentrated on the ink on the page than the substance of the conversation.
See Traditions Come to Life!
The national carnival known as Apokries is celebrated in Greece during the weeks before lent commences leading up to Greek Orthodox Easter. All around the country traditional celebrations take place, unveiling some of Greece’s most colorful, fun, weird and wonderful customs. CYA Spring Semester Students can also join in the festivities happening a stone’s throw away from their doorstep in Athens.
Lighting the fireplace, escaping to a beach house for a day, cooking genuine Greek food, laughing, dancing, sharing deep thoughts about the world, are just some of the memories CYA students have been sharing with us about their lives in their host homes during their semester in Athens.
