A chance for young Australians aged 18-32 of Epirote heritage to study in Ioannina this year has been made available through the Study Abroad Ioannina program.
Students live on the University of Ioannina campus and have full access to all services offered by the university. Language classes are held weekday mornings. Multiple class levels are offered and no previous knowledge of the Greek language is needed. Dance classes, lectures, and excursions take place some afternoons, evenings, and weekends. Past outings have included trips to Meteora and Metsovo, Dodoni, Lefkada, Zagori, and Perama. Recent participants have described the program as an essential part of their understanding of the Greek language and Epirote culture.
The Study Abroad Ioannina program will take place this July, but there are also sessions for December this year and also you can enquire about programs in 2013. For more information, contact Costas Vassiliou convass@msn.com or call 0401 802 492.
