Learn Greek in Crete
Learning Greek abroad in Crete, Greece is one of many language immersion programs offered by AmeriSpan. The peninsula of mainland Greece is surrounded by more than 1400 islands, 169 of which are inhabited. This land of ancient sites and architectural treasures offers much more than age-old spectacular natural sites, including an extremely rich flora, and cultural and modern diversions ranging from elegant museums to luxury beach resorts. Modern Greece is the result of a diverse mix of influences: Romans, Arabs, Latin Crusaders, Venetians, Slavs, Albanians, Turks, Italians, not to mention the Byzantine Empire.
The best time to visit Greece is late April to mid-June just before it becomes a popular vacation spot. Roughly four-fifths of the country is mountainous hence it is the perfect backdrop for trekking. During the winter months, a delightful and less expensive alternative to the Alps, skiing and other winter sports are the attraction in the mountains, southern mainland and on the island of Crete.
