"Language is best learned intensively. The generous support of the Kallinikeion Foundation enables students to learn Modern Greek in a focused and dedicated way for four weeks each year. In addition to their language acquisition, our students are exposed to Greek culture within an international community of online learners. We thank the Kallinikeion Foundation for their investment in our students and their trust in Hellenic College to steward their beneficence."
