Achaia Adult Education Institute

Achaia Adult Education Institute focus on organizing and offering education packages for learning the Greek language as second to social excluded society groups free.

Learning the Greek language and the basic elements of the Greek culture is vital for us, because in this way the learners obtain language and communicative skills and the practical social and intercultural abilities, which are very important and necessary in life.

With these skills the socially excluded groups are encouraged socially and personally, as they become active European citizens,

we are really very experienced in organizing workshops for adults, because we have in the past implemented a lot of workshops for Adults, hosting European Teaches and Educators in Patras. In 2004, we implemented and organized successfully a workshop for 20 European Teachers/Educators and 5 Greeks with the theme: ‘E-collaboration for student and teachers: tools methods and examples of good practice’, (Socrates-Comenius 2.2 course GR-2004-003) in the Hellenic Open University premises for 7 days, successfully.
