Dear friends, we thank you once again for your interest in the Pontian Dialect lessons, organized by the Pontian Community of Melbourne.

The response has exceeded our expectations, which is very pleasing. Since our announcement about the commencement of these lessons, within a few days, we have had requests of participation from Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and all around Australia. We continue to receive new requests on a daily basis.

Currently, those having demonstrated interest are so many that we have had to create a second group. The lessons will continue on a weekly basis, every Wednesday and will be repeated for the second group every Thursday. You are all welcome to join us in this beautiful journey to our roots, just drop us an email to [email protected]

I would like to specially thank once again our teacher Mrs Yiota Ioakimidou for her contribution, desire and passion for this important work. We thank you all for your participation and wish you all the best with the continuation of the lessons!

On behalf of the Pontian Community of Melbourne,
Gregory Sembelides
Pontian Dialect Lessons Coordinator
