Some people find the only way to learn Greek is to have lessons, especially if they are free Greek lessons!
We found this excellent course when I first came to the island:
Learn Greek FREE - Click the button below
There are 105 lessons in total and the focus is on learning to SPEAK Greek rather than understand the grammar which puts SO many people off.
The only downside to these lessons is you need to commit a lot of your time, a half hour per lesson and you really need to repeat most lessons to make the words stick properly.
But if listening to a language is your preferred way to learn Greek quickly, then why not try an audio book?
Easy to download into your MP3 player or to copy onto a CD for the car or whatever.
Listen, learn and practice whenever you want. I find the ironing goes much quicker when I have to concentrate on listening to Greek...!
Update January 2020 - I've been using a fantastic app called Duolingo for the past year. It's a great way to learn both oral and written Greek. It's FREE to use, but it does have ads so if you want to get ride of them just pay a very low cost fee per month to lose the adverts!
If you really get confident after your first Greek lessons or after using an app like the one above, you'll probably need a dictionary as back-up.
We've bought several and some are better than others. Our best recommendation is the Pocket Oxford Greek Dictionary ISBN 0-19-860327-4
Or try this great little pocket sized dictionary/phrase book. It's cheap and much better than just a pocket dictionary. It also tells you how to pronounce the words properly:
The Rough Guide Dictionary Phrasebook ISBN 1-85828-643-3
Remember. Don't forget those Free Greek lessons.
