After asking many of our students about their problems in Greek, we realized that the main issues of people related to their Greek are SPEAKING and UNDERSTANDING everyday natural Greek. Some of the responses we have had from people:
“The thing I find most difficult in Greek is to understand what words mean and some of the main difficulties I have are to understand someone having a conversation or to fathom the fast-talking Greek Newscasters I’ve seen on TV.”
“I find it very hard to understand the rapid talk of native speakers of Greek, and find it difficult to speak Greek myself.”
“I’m quite shy about speaking Greek.”
“I think for me the greatest difficulty is the depth of the Greek vocabulary, as I’m only trying to learn Greek now at an older age, and I never stuck it out in Greek School as a kid.”
“I think not only is the vocabulary complicated, but also I find it hard to sort out the many ways you use words and the many different situations when you use them.”
Most of the responses are the same or similar to those listed above. Taking this into consideration and really wanting to SOLVE your problem, we have been thinking about how we could help you. After an in-depth analysis, we decided to create the 50 natural Greek expressions course so that you can learn common Greek phrases and words.
Why did we end up designing this course?
Because we think that it is very important to learn expressions people use in everyday life. We want you to learn expressions which are difficult to find in textbooks, not so much because they are not useful but because the spoken language is changing so fast and real life is so much more dynamic than a textbook.
