Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program. This complete Greek course includes all of Phases 1 and 2 – 30 hours of spoken language practice and two hours of reading instruction.  With this product you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progressing to a mid-intermediate level of speaking, understanding and reading Greek. Every lesson contains an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced.  Emphasis on pronunciation and comprehension. At the completion of this course, you’ll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary, and experience the language and culture with a deepening insight into a new world. Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30 for each Phase. These lessons, which total about two hours, are designed to first give you practice sounding out the Greek alphabet, then to progress to reading for meaning. Before you know it, you’ll be reading Greek with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A PDF file containing the combined Reading Booklets to be used with the audio lessons is included.

 About the Greek Language

Comments about Greek (Modern) Phases 1-2:

Pimsleur Greek has joined my arsenal of self study tools. I am fortunate to be able to attend classes locally. However, class only meets a few times per month and different students show up at each class. The instructor is very flexible, teaching to multiple levels of fluency. I like being able to supplement with something more structured.

I listen to the lessons in a quiet environment first to be sure of my pronunciation. I follow up by listening again in my car while commuting.

I like the fact that the student is required to speak in whole sentences that include multisyllabic words.

I appreciate the reading lessons, but I really wish that each audio listen included a word list. I am both a visual and auditory learner. Seeing the words helps me to learn them.

Comments about Greek (Modern) Phases 1-2:

I use the product nearly every day.
I like its accessibility on my IPad and phone.
I wish that there was just a little more repetition as words are introduced. I find syntax difficult for the verbs, and at no point are those gone over in a way that I could go back and review.

Great product, it's really helped build my learning of Greek, i'm disappointed there aren't further stages though, a stage 3 phase would be fantastic in my opinion.

Comments about Greek (Modern) Phases 1-2:

Very easy to use. Excellent native speakers. Within a few weeks I have been able to pick up some very important phrases.
I have also been told that I am speaking Greek with virtually no foreign accent. So the Pimsleur course really worked well for me!!
I wish they would release a Greek 3, because I would certainly purchase it.

      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.
