Special features of this book include guides to Greek Pronunciation and basic Greek sentence structure, a 60+ page English-Greek/Greek-English Dictionary, an Irregular Verb List with grammatical conjugations, and a 30+ page Greek Grammar guide.
I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to learn how to speak passable Greek, and only has about 2 or 3 weeks with which to do it. The edition of the book I have has a special offer for a FREE audio cassette. The book and the cassette together are an excellent way to quickly enable you to speak, read, write and understand Greek, at a reasonable level of skill.
If you are looking for something easy to use, yet really helpful and reliable I strongly recommend you to buy Hara Garoufalia's book instead of this one!
What the book lacks is any sort of interactive component. There are no exercises. No passages to translate or questions to answer to demonstrate your understanding. The book basically expects the learner to memorize the stuff by rote, a VERY outdated method of learning languages.
While very basic, "Teach Yourself Beginner's Greek Script" is much more useful, providing plenty of exercises (most of them fun and imaginative) to support the information in each lesson.
Off to find another more advanced 'teach yourself greek' book, I guess.
A CD accompanying a language course is very useful as you can imitate the speakers pronunciation, which is difficult doing it by reading a close resemblance from a book.
When you receive the book you will realise that this offer is only for US and Canada bringing a flimsy excuse in small print "due to foreign customs regulations"
I wrote to the publishers explaining that in my country there are no customs restrictions of educational material and if they could send me my a free CD.
Todate the publisher did not have the decency to reply to my request.
