Place: Corinth, Dako's Café Koliatsou 73

Date: Monday 9 September 2013

Hours: 18.30-20.30

The 1st meeting took place at Dako's Café in Corinth, a place with friendly and pleasant atmosphere.

- Coming to the point,

the yesterday language café meeting might be considered successful, in general. Fairly good participation. 15 participants, out of whom 1 from Afghanistan and the rest, of Albanian origin. They were pretty excited due to the fact that they were going to learn Greek by means of conversation without having to do any kind of homework or beforehand preparation.

- As 1st meeting I focused on:


1) The participants introducing themselves to one another,

2) Presentation & explanation of Metikos Program in addition to the benefits it probably brings about, as for e.g. Certificates, richer CVs and so on and so forth.

3) Information about language cybercafé including efforts in convincing and encouraging them to take part even in the internet language café as another useful method in practicing the language in written, regardless of their knowledge in Greek.

4) Filling in the enrolment forms & attendance registration

5) Renewal of the next meeting (on Wednesday 11 September 2013 at 7 p.m until 8.30)

- Remarks


a) Judging from the participants' mien (except from the afghan youngster), I didn't find them so open to get to know each other 'cause the majority already knew one another beforehand.

b) During the presentation of the program the participants seemed to be very interested, asking questions about the history of language café, other places where this program takes place or even if they could practice Greek in written.
