Why there are three authors on the cover page and photo here above, but usually only two names are mentioned in the social media and articles?

A little bit of history…
We,  Marina, Konstantinos and Dora, were teaching Greek for a long time at the Omilo-school in Greece. During our professional and friendly cooperation, we decided to write a Language Book together, for Intermediate Levels, focussing on vocabulary and listening exercises, rather than grammar. Something that did not exist and many students were asking for.
However, totally unexpected and only one year after the book was published, unfortunately, Dora passed away…
Konstantinos and Marina both continued to follow their passion and teach Greek to foreigners at Omilo, and at the same time write more language books.

From 2019, the digital version of Φύγαμε για ελληνικά! also became available [ebook], with downloadable audio files.

(note: On the audio files you do not hear the voice of Dora, since she could not be present when the recordings in Athens took place, back in 2013. However, you can listen to the voices of Marina, Konstantinos, and many others…)

 

Λίγη ιστορία…

Η Μαρίνα, ο Κωνσταντίνος και η Δώρα δίδασκαν για  πολύ καιρό μαζί στην σχολή «Ομιλώ» στην Ελλάδα. Μέσω της φιλίας και της συνεργασίας τους, αποφάσισαν να γράψουν, από κοινού, ένα βιβλίο γλώσσας για τα μέσα επίπεδα, επικεντρώνοντας στο λεξιλόγιο και τις ακουστικές ασκήσεις, παρά στην Γραμματική. Κάτι που δεν υπήρχε και πολλοί μαθητές το ζητούσαν.
Ωστόσο, εντελώς απροσδόκητα και μόνο έναν χρόνο μετά την έκδοση του βιβλίου, η Δώρα Στοϊμενίδου πεθαίνει…
Έκτοτε, ο Κωνσταντίνος και η Μαρίνα συνεχίζουν να ακολουθούν το πάθος τους διδάσκοντας ελληνικά σε ξένους στο «Ομιλώ» και συγγράφουν περισσότερα βιβλία γλώσσας.

Από το 2019, διατίθεται επίσης και η ψηφιακή μορφή του «Φύγαμε για ελληνικά!», με ακουστικά αρχεία που μπορούν να μεταφορτωθούν από το διαδίκτυο.

(σημείωση: Στα ακουστικά αρχεία δεν ακούγεται η φωνή της Δώρας καθώς δεν μπορούσε να είναι παρούσα στις ηχογραφήσεις που έγιναν στην Αθήνα, πίσω στο 2013. Ωστόσο, ακούγονται οι φωνές της Μαρίνας, του Κωνσταντίνου και πολλών άλλων…)
