In April 2001 Prof. John Wells visited Greece, at the invitation of Dr Anny Georghountzou of the American College of Greece, Athens. Dr Georghountzou is an alumna of UCL, having done both the MA in Phonetics and her PhD in the Department.
Prof. Wells gave a well-attended public lecture at the ACG (Deree College), and also conducted a workshop on intonation with Dr Georghountzou's students.
He also managed to do some sightseeing.
