a possibility to socialize with others as well as Omilo-team members, and chat about anything you want.
You will be divided into “breakout rooms” with 4-6 students every time. Make sure you have your drink ready and relax…as in any other cafe!
This online event takes place on ZOOM.
This is a live event, and there are no reductions in case you can not make it for a particular evening. It is like missing a class…or being too late in the class.
No recordings will be sent.
After buying your ticket, you will get a detailed update about how ZOOM works (it’s easy ;)) , as well as more instructions about the Omilo-cafe.
Not sure what to expect?
Read below some comments of students who joined in one of the first three events :
Hi Maya and Dimitris and all the teachers!
Thank you so much for everything. Again it has been such a wonderful experience, even more in those times.. It felt like being in Athens, enjoying the very positive OMILO Spirit together with you and some classmates. My feedback: All thumbs up!!! If you are planning another Online-Workshop it would be my pleasure to join again, so please let me know. Stay safe and healthy.

Dear Omilo team,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for inviting me to join the zoom course.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole week, and the presentations were all fabulous – I’ve got so many new things to see, try & do now. Being the only ‘new’ girl I was slightly apprehensive about joining an unknown group, but I needn’t have worried as I was made to feel very welcome right from the start.
I already feel part of the Omilo family. This has definitely encouraged me to continue my learning.

Just wanted to tell you I did enjoy all evenings so much. Thanks for the great idea, I so admire all your creative energy. It is perfect. Hope to see you soon one way or another. Keep healthy,

Thank you for letting me attend to the ONLINE Cultural Week! It was a great pleasure for me. Especially the first evening, at the moment Dimitris suddenly appeared on my screen and we were in contact! Wow!
Just like the first day on a course in Maroussi! And then the others came on, some of them known, and some other unknown, but nice people.
The sixth day I missed you 🙂
Would love to be invited again
What a great way of learning more about a country and culture which I’m passionate about – still lots to learn….Thank you for organising this event. these things are hard work but thank you and it was good to get involved and see everyone- like a little Greek family coming together…. I would be very happy to get involved again.
Much love, Anita, UK, April 2020
This event was perfect. We really had a chance to experience a true Greek Pasha.
Your idea was marvellous. I do hope to see you again in person once this corona crisis is over. I do wish that the situation will not harm your business too much.
Book your ticket now!
The Omilo-team is looking forward to seeing you soon online.
