Greece is one of the most popular European holiday destinations. It is especially popular because of its beaches, food, and the lively nightlife. Our wider region, the Peloponnese is a place of immense historical importance, as it possesses several monuments from different historical periods. This, combined with its beautiful beaches with crystal clear blue water, makes it a popular tourist-destination, especially during the summer.

Kalamata  (Greek:ΚαλαμάταKalamáta) is the second most populated city of the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece. It is surrounded by a beautiful environment that combines the sea with mountains, a combination that offers itsinhabitants and visitors not only beauty, but also chances to get in touch with nature, all year long. In Kalamata you will find a 4km long city beach that has been granted the Blue Flag Award of quality, where people can swim in the crystal clear waters or just lie and enjoy under the sun. Kalamata Beach has numerous cafés, beach bars, restaurants, and taverns and is also one of the beautiful places to go for a walk, day and night.

It is the perfect place to have your language internship. Apart from having the opportunity to visit some great places, you will get the chance to demonstrate your communication and presentation skills, as well as the ability to inspire students to learn your native language. Whether you are looking to boost your language skills, and gain some experience to improve your CV, or you just want to try something different, this internship programme in Kalamata is ideal for you!
