"Teach Yourself Beginner's Greek" is the right course for you if you really want to learn Greek but are daunted by the prospect of complicated grammar, classes and coursebooks. This book starts right from the beginning and explains everything in simple English. There are hints throughout to make learning easy and you can learn at your own pace with plenty of practice of each new point. It is a friendly introduction to the language which will help you to understand and speak Greek sufficiently well to function effectively in basic everyday situations. The course will also offer you an insight into Greek culture. The book is divided into two main parts. Units 1-7 cover the basic structures and grammatical points you'll need in everyday situations. In Units 8-15 expand on that and give you more opportunity to reproduce language or to try creating new language yourself. They help you to put into practice and consolidate the language you have learnt in the first 7 units. There is a special section on the Greek alphabet and pronunciation at the start of the book. The standard Greek alphabet is used alongside transliteration throughout the book and English translations of all the dialogues are also given. In the first ten units the transliteration is given first but from Unit 11 onwards, there is a shift towards using the Greek script first so that you get used to working with it. There is a mini test at the end of every unit so that you can check your progress and three revision tests at the back of the book - one for every five units - so that you can assess and review any areas of difficulty. By the end of the course you'll be able to communicate in a wide range of real-life situations and have all the practical information you need to enjoy your next trip to Greece. The accompanying double CD provides approximately 2 hours of listening material. The CDs (0 340 87035 4) and book (0 340 87031 1) can also be purchased separately. Alternatively, the listening material is also available on a double cassette which can be purchased on its own (0 340 87034 6) or in a pack with the book (0 340 87032 X).
