I bought this book to brush up my Greek, so am not a complete beginner. What I like about it is that it is set out logically and clearly and the printing is very clear. Normally I would not buy such a book by a non-native speaker, but this author has amazing credentials and it is possibly an advantage that she herself had to learn Greek and can see this from a pupil's point of view. The reason I didn't give it five stars is the unfortunate number of mistakes, especially is the key to the exercises, everything ranging from a misplaced accent, through adjectives which don't agree with their nouns, to, in one place, omitting a bit chunk of the sentence. It would appear that this has not been proofed by a Greek speaker. Apart from being irritating, this does not bother me too much but, if I were a complete beginner, I would probably be feeling quite confused by now (and I'm only up to Chapter 7 so far!). In spite of this, I am glad that I chose this book to refresh my Greek and would recommend it to others, though not necessarily complete beginners.

So I started the book 2 days ago, and I feel like it was a great investment! It is unbelievably hard to find a decent beginner's book to learn Modern Greek (at least I have found it difficult), and I'm so happy to have found this book! With that said, this is definitely for the individual who wants to learn Greek, not just gain some phrases for the trip!

While skimming through it I could see the author has tried to include as much vocab and grammar as possible. I personally love the Greek-only audio recordings as I find it to be a more effective way of learning.
My one complaint with the recordings: When the audio asks you to repeat after the speaker, the native sometimes says hard phrases/words all at once. It's a minor detail though, I suppose that's what forces you as a learner to really break down the words and try to learn it until you can repeat it easily.

To make the most out of my book I've created a notebook where I re-write the dialogue and vocab. I am taking it nice and slow, and making sure I understand the dialogue/lesson before moving on. Obviously this isn't anything special just an obvious way of reinforcing the material, but I am surprised how many people on Amazon slam a language-learning book before even trying to create their own method of learning!

I know I just got the book, which is why I'm only giving it 4 (perhaps I should have waited, but I couldn't resist!). I will do my best to update once I get through it, and see if I should give or take a star. I have confidence in this book, and recommend you to check it out if you are struggling to find a serious introduction to this beautiful language.

P.S. I did have some knowledge of the alphabet prior to buying it so I didn't think much of how the book just dives in. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, this might be a shock for those who have no knowledge of the Greek alphabet as the book only goes through the alphabet once and immediately has you reading. I wouldn't worry about that though, if you truly feel lost even with the book there are plenty of sites online to help with the basics of the alphabet, just do a search. Good luck!

I purchased the paperback because the Kindle edition is marked as not including the audio CD's but the paperback I received did not come with any CD's either. When learning another language it is rather important to be able to hear it... This book looks good but without the CD's don't bother buying it.

I originally reviewed this title as a Kindle book, and criticized it for not including some substitute for the CDs with the e-book. This review is a review of the hard copy, with CDs. I have been studying Modern Greek seriously for 4 years, in a classroom setting, and of all the Learn Greek On Your Own book-and-CD combinations that I have tried, this one is unique. I know now that the only way to really learn this language is through studying Greek grammar. The language IS its grammar, to a greater extent than German, or Italian or French. All of the other Learn Greek packages I tried were, basically, thematic phrase books for tourists, with chapters on what to say in a restaurant or taverna, what to say in a shop, how to find a hospital, how to say "I have a stomach ache", etc. This book actually presents the grammar, in detail, without page after page of examples, and leaving out some variations, but it is otherwise thorough. To someone unfamiliar with the language, the book may seem to rattle on about meaningless details, but, simply put, there are no meaningless details in modern Greek. Every word in a sentence is affected by, and in turn effects, all the other words in the sentence. The interaction is so complete that the word order in Greek sentences is unimportant. By that I mean that every article, adjective, and pronoun is tailored precisely to a specific noun or verb in the sentence, such that word order really doesn't matter the way it does in English. This book is not the only way to learn Greek grammar, but it is thorough, and if you work through it, you will actually be able to construct an understandable sentence, question, or reply in modern Greek.
PS-there is a movement within the Greek-language-education community to eliminate the dual-language approach, i.e., translating Greek words into English, or German, or French, for each national audience. So a lot of Greek language textbooks have been yanked off the market in favor of the Rosetta Stone approach-a picture with Greek-only; no other language is used in the book. Of what's left, this book/CD combination is a rarity.
