NO MATTER WHAT ROSETTA STONE or an infinite number of other language-learning companies would have you believe, the best way to learn a language is through immersion — to be thinking in the language all the time, to be learning its rhythms and patterns, and to be listening to native speakers speak it.

One way to practice Greek and even exchange your language too with native speakers,is over a coffee with elderly cosmopolitan Greeks.

All the lonely elderly people that have a coffee in this cafe,agreed for a discussion in Greek with Thessaloniki InterNations members that are interested or even practice in french and German since some of them studied abroad too.

Lets go beyond beatles song:

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

and enjoy a conversation with some of them.

While it says something about our society that this is the case, the elderly in Greece tend to be somewhat neglected, and thus are often happy to have an audience, or at the very least a conversation partner.
