Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction on 16 CDs, plus a reading booklet

Greek is the official language of Greece and one of the official languages of Cyprus. Many modern scientific and technical words in English are derived from Greek, and it has been estimated that 12% of the English vocabulary is of Greek origin. This course teaches Modern Greek.

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat!Greek I, Comprehensive includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons.

  • In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
  • In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
  • In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of this unit. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Greek and to provide vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading Greek with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

    Comments about Greek (Modern) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    I downloaded Greek I about a week before traveling for vacation because I have had such a great experience with other Pimsleur Languages and knew that even with just one week I would learn some key words for my trip. I learned enough to order food, direct a taxi to my hotel and even enough to have a short conversation with an old Greek man who owned a restaurant and spoke no English. I doubted whether I could manage ANY Greek in that short of time but Pimsleur method makes sense and teaches you what you need to know, not random words like other methods.

      Comments about Greek (Modern) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      Traveling to Greece soon - I feel confident already that I'll be able to communicate in simple terms through lesson 7. I love hearing the correct pronunciation and the way the lessons build on each other. It breeds confidence!!! I've tried live mocha and a little bit of Rosetta and this far exceeds those programs because of the conversation focused aspect of Pimsleur. I also liked reading the free book on learning languages to help me know how my brain and memory functions. So far I'm loving the product and have recommended it to others. .

      Comments about Greek (Modern) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      I have used Pimsleur to learn the basics of Portuguese, Croatian, and most recently Modern Greek. I have found it to be very effective, and well curated to begin right away with the phrases you'll need. Doing daily lessons has been very effective for me, and I have been confident in using my language right away.

      My only real reservation, is that the program seems to be geared toward men who are trying to pick up native girls. It is amusing, but seems chauvinistic.

      Comments about Greek (Modern) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      I purchased the Greek mp3 program lessons 1-30. This program works for me! I use it 30 minutes each day and often repeat the previous lesson before starting a new one. The conversations are fun and always keep you applying new learning in a variety of ways. I often pause the lesson to give me time to respond before the speaker says the answer. I use this on my iPhone over my car radio when traveling. I wish the volume was louder as sometimes when my phone rings it is very loud compared to the voice on the language program. I would highly recommend this program and method to others. I am using it in conjunction with other books to understand how to read Greek. Also wish the program came with a written dialogue and index of the conversations. Sometimes you just need to see the words written out. Overall I give this five stars.

          I just started Pimsleur's beginners Greek and it is by far the best language program I have ever come across! I am attempting to learn Greek as my 4th language and this technique is so much easier than any technique I have ever experienced. I am thrilled! I just wish I would have known about the Pimsleur cd's sooner. Thank you!
