Study abroad at ACT

I am just about to finish up my experience at ACT and had a pretty great semester. I loved getting to know the city of Thessaloniki and had great professors while studying at ACT. The local students were all eager to get to know me and integrate me into their school. However, ACT is a very small school so if you don't like that type of atmosphere this is not the program for you. I also found that the classes were easier than what I was used to, and the learning environment did not provide for as much intellectual discussion as I would have liked. However, I feel as though I learned a lot about the history of Thessaloniki and the culture today and that experience was priceless.

    Thank you so much for your comment Natalee!

    We are so sorry to hear that the small campus size was not for you, we do hope that you were aware of this before the program started and will be sure to make sure all students are more aware of our small student body in the future.

    The classroom discussions in the small international campus usually lead to a stimulating and exciting time in the classroom, especially during discussion periods, we are sorry to hear that you missed out on this experience!

    If there is anything other than the campus size that we could of done differently to improve your time in Thessaloniki, please do let us know! We want to offer the best experience for every student that chooses to study at the American College of Thessaloniki and appreciate your feedback.

TEFL program experience at ACT

The American College of Thessaloniki (ACT) offers a fantastic TEFL program. It is very comprehensive and the instructors who teach the program are very knowledgeable and helpful. They have different teachers for different sessions, each one specializing in various aspects of teaching English, which gives you a well rounded training. The curriculum for the program was well organized, and they teach you practical, hands-on skills that will help you in a real classroom setting. The classes are small therefore you have the opportunity to have more one on one interaction with the instructors. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to teach English as a second language.

Go Greek in Greece

Studying Abroad for the Summer Semester in Greece it has been one of the most joyful and thrilling experiences I ever had. I had the opportunity learn Greek, learn about the History and culture and travel inside Greece and visit some of the Greek Islands. This opportunity also gave me spiritual and knowledge growth.

Unforgettable voyage

Even with previous sailing experience, Sea Sailing 101 taught me more than I could have ever imagined. The instructor was knowledgeable, understanding, and fun! After we were competent with the material/activities for the day, we were able to enjoy ourselves and each other. I loved this course and it truly inspired me to continue sailing long into my future!

Never leaving

I had such a great time abroad, and ACT played a great role in this. Everyone included in the staff was incredibly helpful, and the teachers were more than amazing. The course material was something that I couldn't get at home, and neither was the experience! I had a great time, and I hope that I can return to Thessaloniki some day.
