This little book was designed to introduce you to some basic principles of modern Greek. While it's not a "pocket phrase book" or a "vocabulary book," it is an ideal text for the serious student, traveler, and explorer searching for a fast introduction to one of the most glorious languages in the world. Most importantly, this book is meant to be fun! We all learned our first language when we were kids. That's a fact worth keeping in mind. In one sense, learning the basics of another language asks that you become a little kid again, that you do things little kids do all the time: that you enjoy yourself without fear, that you make mistakes without worry, and that you play. If you can do that, if you play with the material that we've put together for you in this little book, then you'll learn some basic Greek, and you'll have fun doing it. Now, stop reading this English! Go GET YOUR GREEK ON!

Review:

"Just the thing for an English-speaking student's first semester of study in Greece. A genuinely helpful introduction that makes experimenting with a new language a truly fun experience." - Jeremy B. Rutter (Professor Emeritus of Classical Studies and Sherman Fairchild Professor Emeritus in the Humanities, Dartmouth College.) 

"I needed this book forty years ago!" - Andrew Stewart (Professor of Ancient Mediterranean Art and Archaeology in the Departments of History of Art and Classics, Nicholas C. Petris Professor of Greek Studies, and Curator of Mediterranean Archaeology at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology, The University of California at Berkeley.)

"Learn to speak Greek like Zorba!" - Jenifer Neils (Elsie B. Smith Professor in the Liberal Arts, Case Western Reserve University.)
