By S. Pompa on June 1, 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I decided to learn Greek, I saw there were few resources on the market. I wanted something that had lots of audio practice, had a written manual, was mp3-friendly, had lots of exercises, had cultural notes and was comprehensive (after all, the best part of traveling is speaking the language, right?). I first looked into Rosetta Stone. I didn't get it because it was expensive, and people I knew who had used the first RS Italian course couldn't speak a lot of Italian. Even though there was an app you could use, there wasn't anything written. I looked into Pimsleur; same thing: nothing written. Neither had anything about Greek culture and how the language is used there.

I had used Living Language to learn German before a trip, and having arrived in Germany while only on the 20th lesson (out of 40) I was able to speak with and understand almost everyone. So I looked into Living Language's Spoken World Greek. It was everything I was looking for.

It's 15 lessons in a 300+ page manual; audio CDs I downloaded to my iPhone that cover both what's in the book and some extra for practice; numerous exercises; and for me, one huge asset, it was comprehensive.

The lessons are divided into sections for vocabulary and grammar, and dialogues. On the audio, the native speakers seem to fly through their speaking parts, but not so fast that you can't follow along. The vocabulary and dialogues are modern and up to date, and there are plenty of cultural notes.

What I really love is that, despite being comprehensive in only 15 lessons, they seem to understand the difficulty in learning a language that uses masculine, feminine and neuter nouns. Rather than throwing all these at you at once, they, along with singular and plural, are spread out across several lessons.
