Finally, there is an incredibly interesting article on Fullspate named The Greek Proficiency Mania which refers to the rush of most Greek students to get this much coveted degree at too early an age. It also points out the need to enjoy the learning procedure and take your time through it, without trying 'to run before you can walk'. Most importantly, it highlights the need to do a degree in English at university in case your dream is to teach the language.
