The next day, they contacted him via Skype. Their conversation progressed without Mr. Grigorakis’ students as he was not at school. The students were thrilled by his directness of speech, his sweetness and his honesty when answering their questions. The students’ impressions were very good. The children stated that they would like to do it again because they had such a great time!
