Learn Greek Modern for Beginners - Part 1 St George & Sutherland Community College

Learn Greek Modern for Beginners - Part 1

Greek is considered a rather difficult language. That explains the expression it’s all Greek to me!. But once you take a closer look, you will see that you already speak some Greek – Have you ever thought that words like theatre, democracy, music, logic, energy, diagnosis, philosophy, strategy, hexagon, psychology and many more derived from the Greek language?

This Modern Greek language course is a Beginners course and no prior knowledge of the Greek language is required. You are going to learn the 24-letter alphabet and the basics of Greek grammar.
