Summer School 2017 is organized by the Department of History (Ionian University) and is addressed to those who want to learn how to speak Greek and also to those who want to be able to raise their skills in order to be able to think in Greek. Attendees will also be encouraged to develop argumentation by using the Greek language and to put into practice that gained knowledge on issues concerning historical, philosophical and other subjects.

Moreover, summer school is organized in an environment that blends the exquisite beauty of the natural landscape, with the unique architectural, artistic and cultural presence of a place that is part of UNESCO’s World Cultural Heritage. That place is the City of Corfu, where the foreigner students will have the opportunity to live a relaxed and memorable experience while learning the Greek language, history and culture by combining the past times with the present, and thus broadening their intellect and aesthetic horizons.
