Now that you know where to go, what forms you have to fill out and what you want to do when working in Cyprus, we would like to give you a little piece of advice. Cyprus is a really friendly island and as we have mentioned throughout the website, when you are holidaying here it is not necessary to speak the language but if you wish to be working in Cyprus long term and your vocation will bring you into contact with the locals we would strongly recommend a crash course in the fundamentals of the language as we found that having no language skills at all proved to be a hurdle when dealing with business matters.

Give the following course a try. It won't cost you an arm and a leg or alternatively, visit our Learn Greek page for further ideas.

It is very quirky and lots of fun if you are not the studious types, like me. It makes learning easy - no verbs, adjectives and heavy stuff. Just lots of memory jogging silliness to help you along the way. The teacher includes funny anecdotes and a few jokes and the new words, phrases and language rules are gently introduced and reinforced through subtle repetition without ever being tedious. In fact, despite a distinct emphasis on non-work, the course proves very effective and enjoyable, and its format is ideal for learning anywhere you like. So, if you only want to learn to speak the language, this course is highly recommended.

It worked for me - Seriously!
