Emily & Danai from Greek Language Experts
Say hello to Emily & Danai from the Greek Language Experts! They were born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece and first met in kindergarten. Over the years they followed different paths and went to different high schools, but life brought them back together in 2019. Emily was already living in New York City and Danai was living in Athens. During the first quarantine in March 2020, online learning became very popular and that’s how the idea arose. Greek Language Experts is a website for foreigners that are interested in learning the Greek language. There will be classes for beginners, intermediate, and advanced level students with the choice of a group class, private class, or self-paced videos. Each level will have subsections in order to fully understand the Greek language and be able to speak with no fear or hesitation.

Term Limits, Transparency, & Ostracism in Ancient Greece
The ancient Athenians wanted to avoid tyranny, or one-man rule, at all costs, and thus they invented or adopted the ideas of rotation, accountability, and the use of the lottery. Rotation means term limits. No one could hold the same office for more than a year, except for the members of the Areopagus court (their version of the Supreme Court), who held their posts for life. Everyone else rotated out. People could serve twice in a lifetime.

Still trying to get me...
It really is a never-ending chase...
Every year when Lent starts
It never fails, when fasting begins for Pascha, I forget and eat something I shouldn't and then remember half way through.
Greeks at the table next to you
When the table next to you starts speaking Greek...
