Anyone who has taken students abroad know how hard it is to introduce students to local languages and give them a chance to gain basic proficiency in those languages. Peter Schultz, a buddy of mine down at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, has made an effort to produce a short primer for students travelling to Greece.
Two things to know. Peter is an absolute rock-star. Not only is he completely proficient in Modern Greek (he got his Ph.D. at the University of Athens), but he’s also an experienced leader of student trips to Greece.
The coolest thing about this is that it’s being funded through Kickstarter meaning YOU (dear reader) can get in on the ground floor and help fund a great project. By funding it through Kickstarter you can help make the book affordable for students who travel abroad (and who often have saved, scrimped, and spent their precious savings just to get abroad and don’t have much left over for an expensive book!).
The book has been reviewed by experts and Peter’s credentials are impeccable. He needs $2,350 to make this happen. Go and make a donation to a brilliant project.
