Product Description

Dr. Pimsleur's extremely accessible and successful program teaches you language in the same way a native speaker would-through exposure to everyday, normal conversations. Instead of chopping up a foreign language into a little bit of grammar and a dash of vocabulary, he presents the entire language course as a complete whole. And rather than memorizing repetitive drills that only dull learning, his "input/output" system of learning actually challenges your brain through teaching information, and asking you to recall what you've learned.

Basic Greek will provide you with the vocabulary and language tools to learn the basics of a foreign language quickly and easily. You can listen anywhere, from in the car to jogging, while the audio-only instruction teaches you spoken language organically. 30 minute lessons, with both grammar and vocabulary, are designed to optimize the amount of language that can be learned in one sitting. The Basic Pimsleur Program is comprised of the first 10 lessons in the Pimsleur Comprehensive Level 1 course.

Publisher's Description

Greek is the official language of Greece and one of the official languages of Cyprus. Many modern scientific and technical words in English are derived from Greek, and it has been estimated that 12% of the English vocabulary is of Greek origin. This course teaches Modern Greek.

Greek, Basic
  • Ten 30-minute lessons of spoken Greek language instruction (the first ten Units of Pimsleur's 30-Unit Comprehensive Program).
  • Essential grammar and vocabulary that teach you greetings, numbers, how to order food and drinks and to give and ask for directions. Learn to speak with near-native pronunciation.
  • No mindless repetition! Converse with native speakers in natural (and useful!) conversations.
  • Easy, fast, fun and effective language acquisition.
  • Completely Audio - anytime, anywhere. No computer necessary! Unlike expensive software programs which tie learners to a computer, Pimsleur courses are available in CD or mp3 format to meet your needs.

Author Bio

Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method based on two key principles:  the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training that he called "Graduated Interval Recall."  This Method has been applied to the many levels and languages of the Pimsleur Programs.

Editorial Reviews

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." -- AudioFile Magazine
"EXTREMELY ACCESSIBLE...each section within the lessons is short enough to hold our attention, and there is enough repetition to teach even those who consider themselves slow learners...Pimsleur [programs] are extremely thorough and easy to use -- quite lively!" -- Boston Herald
"Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish (or Russian, Italian, and Japanese) while cooking all with NO WRITTEN MATERIALS!" -- New York Daily News
"Designed for the ear and not the eye...the lessons provide PERFECT 30-minute bites of work." -- St Louis Post-Dispatch
"Learn to habla español or parlez français before your next trip aboard. The interactive LESSONS CHALLENGE STUDENTS to use new words in conversation instead of memorize them." -- American Way (American Airlines inflight magazine)
"I tried other language programs with little success...This is the best by far!" -- Pamela A. Mitchell, Pilot, International Society of Women Airline Pilots
