Description

Includes 60 lessons and reading instruction (32 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and 2 reading booklets

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

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.

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.

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.

      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.
