Student testimonials

  • “My biggest achievement was learning the reception computer systems, it was quite challenging to get used to but with practice it was easier. Another achievement was learning some Greek words such as how to say ‘good morning’, ‘hello’, ‘good evening’, ‘how are you’. I found learning these phrases helped with my customer service skills to Greek guests.”

  • “The destination that I stayed in was good as it was very practical for us to live in as well as being an interesting place with plenty to do there. The local people were extremely friendly and would always smile and say hello when we would walk past. The people who I worked with came from different countries such as France, Ireland and Albania and all praised how nice all the Cretan people were all around the island.”
