If you are thinking that learning Greek is difficult and expensive, you are wrong about one thing, it might be difficult (still not impossible) but it’s free if you go for state courses.
I personally take French courses to refresh my knowledges and I paid only 55 euro per level for the entire scholar year (from October till May). At the end you get a certificate for the language level that you've passed. I am happy with it and I thought of sharing this info since many of you might want to learn some Greek to integrate better in your new hometown or you may think of learning some other activities now that you find the time…
If so, please read all info on this link or see the passages that I copied for you further bellow:
