        Comments about Greek (Modern) Phases 1-2:

        I am learning modern Greek to be able to make basic conversation while traveling in Greece. The Pimsleur courses 1-2 give intensive instruction in about 600 words (about 10 words per day). This is a good foundation, but you'll still need to learn some more words, using a language book of some sort. What I found is that I needed to repeat the whole course, starting at lesson 15 or so, to really hammer home the language into my mind. I notice there is a con below for "too fast". I don't agree that this is a con. You just need to repeat the lesson if you feel it is going too fast. Because I got the MP3 version, I can put it on my smartphone and I'll probably repeat the course (starting at lesson 15) a third time. The best thing is that the Pimsleur is a fairly effortless way to get a basic foundation with correct pronunciation. I wish they had a third course however.

        Double benefit

        By Audrius

        from Earth

        Comments about Greek (Modern) Phases 1-2:

        I have finished both phases of Greek. Each lesson is very unpredictable, with nice humour what makes you dive into learning and wait for another day to continue the course. I've started learning a month before a trip to Greece, so after finishing first phase I already tried to communicate in Greek. People who knew that it was my second visit in Greek were astonished to hear speaking me in their language. It was a big pleasure to surprise my friends.. I am grateful to pimsleur program very much not only for Greek. While learning the courses I also improved my English, because it's not my native language. So I got double benefit. Thank you for such valuable product and I wish more people find out about it in order to erase borders between different nationalities.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I would change "post office, newspaper and post cards" into more modern and actual things related to recent time. It's not enough 2 phases to achieve intermedia level, I think. I feel myself as strong beginner now and I am eager to learn more.

          A fantastic way to learn Greek! A very natural way to learn and is certainly very effective. I can now confidently hold short conversations in Greek and have been able to achieve this in a fairly short period of time. Put in the work and effort and you definitely get great results using this method.

          Comments about Greek (Modern) I-II:

          This course has really helped me understand conversations in a local Greek community. It is VERY effective with recall. Even if I get busy and fall away from my studies for a while, one simple review of the lessons and it comes back immediately. You will be able to speak Greek on a pretty limited basis when you complete these two courses because you will have a pretty small vocabulary. Producing the third course in the series will definitely help in these areas.
