Three-week in-country programme in Crete, Greece (2-20 July, 2018)

 

Following our previous highly successful in-country programmes in 2015, 2016 and 2017, we are pleased to announce the dates for the fourth in-country programme for Modern Greek students. The programme will take place on the beautiful island of Crete (University of Crete, Rethymno), from 2nd to 20th of July 2018.
The Crete in-country programme is organised by the LOGOS Centre and the Modern Greek Section at Flinders University, in collaboration with the Centre of Intercultural and Migration Studies, University of Crete. The programme includes four hours tuition daily delivered by staff of the University of Crete, experienced in teaching Modern Greek as a foreign/second language. On completion of the programme students will receive credit - equivalent to a topic - towards their degree, provided they have been enrolled in LANG3500 Special In-Country Studies Topic or equivalent in 2018.
