About This Class

You learn by doing. This is particularly true for languages. That's why it's so important to practise what you're learning. In this course, you won't just watch lectures and do exercises, you'll practise in the lectures.

This course is for complete beginners and is mainly taught in English. There are four sections, and each section builds on the knowledge of the previous one:

  1. Introduction and Alphabet – by the end of this section you’ll be able to produce the sounds that each letter in the Greek alphabet represents.
  2. Letter Combinations and First Words – by the end of this section you’ll be able to read a few words in Greek.
  3. Reading Names, Places, and Dishes – by the end of this section you’ll be able to read some names, places, and dishes in Greek.
  4. Four Basic Conversations – by the end of this section you’ll be able to have four short conversations in Greek.

I use activities within the lectures to make the lessons as interactive as possible and include quizzes at the end of sections 1 to 3 so that you can check how much you’re learning.

If you want to learn a bit of Greek before you go on holiday to Greece or Cyprus, if you work with Greek people and want to impress them, or if you're embarking on an epic language learning journey, this is the course for you.

Transcripts

1. Greek for Complete Beginners: Introdutcion: Hi everyone. My name is Chris and I'm the teacher of this Greek class. I'm a diploma qualified English language teacher and teacher trainer. I grew up in Cyprus and so I speak Greek. Staff did the taxi formatted. There was not the Abbasid, a limbic Andromeda, get some acid that was not hitting their cities. Seen Amelia's styling the gap. So this class is for complete beginners. In the beginning, I teach you about the Greek language, so you have some background knowledge. And afterwards I go through the fundamentals. So you'll learn how to read Greek letters and also how to have four basic conversations in Greek. In the class project. I challenge you to record yourself speaking in Greek. This class is for people who are interested in the Greek language, who might be doing business with some Greek people or going on holiday to Greece or Cyprus. So if you want to be able to read Greek letters and Greek words and have four basic conversations in Greek, then this course is view. Okay, let's go. 2. 1.1 The Greek Language: Hey guys. So in this video, we're going to look at the Greek language, a bit of background on the Greek language to provide you with a base. We're going to start by looking at the course objectives. We're going to look at these throughout the course because it's a Latin language, it's very important that you constantly review and constantly look at your objectives. So as I said in the preview in this course, you will learn the sounds of the Greek alphabet. You'll learn how to read Greek words. So when you see Greek writing, you'll know how to pronounce those words. And finally, you'll learn to have basic conversations. In Greek. You'll have full conversations, each with a specific function. So in this video, we're going to look at a bit of background. You have six statements in front of you. And I want you to think about what the true or false. If you listen to somebody speaking English for thirty-seconds, and then you listen to somebody speaking Greek for 30 seconds. You'll realize that the two languages have Different written from a linguistic point of view, you would say the English as a stress timed language or contains more stress than Greek. So number one is true. Number 2, you see Greek as a phonetic language. And so the way, what's the written will also tell you how they are pronounced. This is true. And this is great because when you look at a word written down, you will have a pretty good chance of pronouncing it correctly. Number three, there are three different letters that create the e sound, as in feet. This is also true and it's something that people might say make the Greek language a little bit confusing. So you have three different letters and they all represent the same sound. Number 4. Similarly, there are two different letters that create the o, as in caught sound. So number 34 are both true. So in number four, you have omega, o and omega. Both of these letters represent the o sound. Number 5. Some letters can be combined to create other sounds. This is also true and you can see a patent probably that is emerging here. All of the statements are in fact true. So a number five. An example would be if you combine the epsilon with a yada, then you create an e sound. We'll look at this in depth a little bit later in this course. And the final one, number 6, is more for your information. In more formal situations, you will use the plural to show respect. We won't focus on that too much in this course, but it's definitely a good thing to know. If you think that you've had lots of information now, that's fine. No need to panic. Everything will become clearer at the end of this course. Okay, let's move on to the next video. 3. 1.2 Letters and Sounds: Okay, So we're ready to crack on with the Greek alphabet. So the way this is going to work is you're going to repeat the sounds of the letters with me and my floating head. So you can see my face and you can see the way I pronounce the letters. So that should help you articulate the sounds. So here we go. A, E, E, O, E. Oh, okay. So this is the alphabet and those are the sounds that these symbols make. Now the reason I had the letters pop up as because I wanted you to have a bit of a test. And essentially, we want you to be able to memorize the Greek alphabet as quickly as possible and the sounds that these symbols make. So having a look now at the alphabet, you can take a screenshot. You can take your own notes, but there are a few, a few vowels and consonants that we'll go through that look, maybe a bit different in English or they sound different in English. And so they need our attention. For example, this sound, and that's symbol doesn't exist in English. It's a sound as in thin. Another one is maybe if you look at this one at the bottom, that looks like an x. But it's not the sound it makes. It makes something like an H sound, maybe a harsher h sound sound. So let's have a look then at some vowels, some vowel sounds. This is an sound and it's only an acid and it's as in cat. So for example, if, if your looking at the word banana in English, that because I speak British English, certain, with a certain accent, that would be an r sound and the other ones will be, will be different. If you listen again, banana. None of those sounds sound like the in Greek. In Greek It's like cat. So in Greek banana is banana. Same width and this is an f sound as in bet and nothing else. So just be aware of that because sometimes when British, British people speak in Greek, an accident, this is, this is y. So these are the two different sounds to symbols for the same sound. And these are the three E's. E sounds. So three symbols for the same sound, ey as in feet. So again, you might want to take a screenshot, take some notes. Okay, moving on to the consonant sounds. There are a few that we need to point out. This is between a y and a z sound. So yeah. This is a sound, for example, the word. Yeah, so yeah, the first letter, the first sound is sound. Then this looks like a BA in English is actually a sound of v, as in event. And the name of this sand is actually V, V alpha beta. This is a sound which doesn't exist in English unless we combine the sounds. And so, so this is a sound, this looks like a D, but it's actually a sound. As in this, not a sound. This is between an upper sound. So it's B. So let it be, this one looks like a P, but it's actually sound like rolling our sound. This is a sound as in thin. This is a sound like in the word hexagon, so it's cooks. And this is between a D and a T at the sound. And finally, the S in Greek. We have the sigma. This is what the letter is called. And everywhere you see this symbol, the circle with the line on top. That is a sound. You won't see that symbol at the end of a word because at the end of the word we use this symbol at the end of a word. We call it the Delhi go sigma, which means the final sigma, the final S. So whenever a word ends in a sound, then it will be sigma. Sigma, like in my name, police. Police. So my name ends in a sigma. Okay, moving on. Well, now that you know a bit more about the Greek alphabet and you've had a bit of an explanation. How into repeat with my floating head again and see, see how you feel. Hopefully you feel a bit more confident about doing this now, okay, here we go. E, e x. Oh, oh, okay, So now hopefully you feel confident enough to be able to to know what sounds the letters make. If you're not, then you can go back and do those exercises again. But this exercise will test your memory. So you will see letters popping up onto your screen. And you'll have a couple of seconds to say the letters and say the sounds that they make. And then I will, I will dictate the letter, I will tell you the sound so you can check your answer. Here we go. E, a, e, I, o. Oh, Okay, and that's it. So again, if you feel like you're not confident enough, go back and check and have a look at the previous slides, and then come back to this to test your memory. In fact, it will be good for you to do this exercise again and again until you feel confident enough with the alphabet. Okay, On to the next section. 4. 1.3 The Alphabet: Okay, Now that you know the sounds that the letters make, you're also going to learn the names of the Greek letters. I've written the names here so you can see them and start learning how to read Greek words. Also, the Greek letters are quite commonly used around the world, so you probably know a few of them already. This exercise is going to be the same as in the previous lecture. You'll see my floating head on the top left saying the names of the letters. And you can repeat with me. So here we go. Alpha, the Gamma Delta Epsilon c d Theta Kappa lambda me, me. See omicron. The sigma epsilon phi c omega. Okay, and that's it. So before you start this exercise, you should go back and do the previous one as many times as you need to feel confident that you will remember them before you start this one. It's the same exercise as in the previous lecture. So let us are going to pop up onto your screen and you have to remember what the name of the letter is. You say the name of the letter and then I'm going to say the name of the letter so that you can check your answer. Here we go. Delta yotta. Need epsilon zeta, eta omicron. Deaf He, kappa rho, lambda me. See omega epsilon alpha. See phi B, sigma V. Okay, and that's it. The next section is letter combinations. See you there. 5. 2.1 Letter Combinations: Okay, This is section 2 of the Greek cause for complete beginners. And that's just review our objectives. So we said in this course, you will learn the sounds of the Greek alphabet. We're halfway through this and we still need a bit more practice. We're going to learn how to read Greek. We've not got that far yet, but we're going to start in this section and learn how to have basic functional conversation that in Greek, we have not started yet. So first we're going to look at letter combinations in vowel sounds. On the right-hand side, you can see some words which may seem a bit daunting to you right now. But this is the idea. This lesson is going to help you read those words. On the left-hand side now you can see alpha plus Europa, alpha plus yotta. This combination of letters creates an S sound as in pet. And on the right-hand side, this first word you can see you have that combination. So that word does not say guy. It says Gai, gai because of the combination of alpha and yotta. Okay, means, and so this is the first combination. Second combination is epsilon, delta epsilon plus Yoda. And this creates an e sound as in feet. And in the second word, you can see we have this combination, epsilon plus Yoda, and we also have the combination of alpha plus yotta. That means that the second word does not say a My, it says Embed Image. And that means I owe Chris image or Chris, I'm Chris. So that's the second combination. Third combination is Amika Toyota omega 0, 0 plus yotta ie. That creates an e sound as in feet. This is the same sound as the epsilon iota. So you can see the third word looks a little bit more complex. Here we have a letter combination, epsilon iota. Then we have this one here and that one there. So two omega o yoga. So this is an e sound. This if you remember, is a sound as in Nest. This is an OH, this is an E, E 0. So this word is not be in, not be eNobe o. Now the reason I've chosen this word that might seem slightly complex is because it means it's a winery. It's the place that you go. If you're going to Greece or Cyprus. And you want to do a few, a few tours of binaries and go wine tasting, then you are looking for that. You're looking for the eNobe o, which is the winery. So the next combination is omega o plus epsilon, Ami kiloohm plus Epsilon. And this combination creates an oo sound as in Pune. And in the fourth word, you can see the Omega Epsilon combined. And this word does not say, Boy. It says buh, buh and puh means where. Bu, bu, bu, bu. Where is the winery. So that's Bu, and that's the fourth combination of vowels. The fifth combination is alpha plus epsilon, alpha plus epsilon. And here you create an sound as an avocado or as an Africa, depending on the letter that follows. So the fifth word over here, you have this combination. And that is af, after. And after means this. This. And the final combination is Epsilon plus Epsilon. And this creates an F as an ever or F as in preference, depending on the letter that follows. In the example on the last word we have here. If Callisto, callisto, if had histone. And this means, thank you. Okay. These are the combinations of letters for vowel sounds, and we'll move on to consonant sounds now. Consonants. Again, you can see two words. Again. It might seem like gobbledygook to you or it might seem very confusing. But the idea is that at the end of these couple of minutes, you understand or know how to read those. So first, we're actually, we can do both of these at the same time, the gamma plus gamma. So plus and plus. They both create a sound which is between, doesn't go and as an angle, right? So here you've got the combination, this word and goody. Goody, goody, which means Q, cucumber and gooey. And you have the guy here. And this would says in getFollows in GitHub us. And this lovely word means brain and give Alice. So a few other points to note before we move on. The first one is to do with punctuation. Semicolon is not a semicolon in Greek, it is a question mark, the question mark. So when you see that symbol, you can see the, you can tell that it means a question mark. For example. What does that say? It says, ease sake EBITDA is Secchi prayer means are you separate, Ru, separate. C at the end there is. And that means I am referring to, I'm speaking to a woman. A female is rare. And so the semicolon here is actually a question mark. Second to note is that syllable stress is indicated by a small line above the vowel. This is good news for you because you know where to put the stress. For example, here we have the word Alaska, a lava, which is Greece in Greek. And the stresses on the second syllable, three syllables et al, la, la, and stresses on the second syllable, denoted by this small line above the letter lambda and lambda. So these are the letter combinations. Again, I don't expect you to, maybe to have memorized that just from the lecture. You can take a screenshot, take some notes, and then do the quiz before moving on to the next section. Okay, see you there. 6. 2.2 First Words: Okay, Moving on to some basic phrases. So here it gets a little bit more interesting. You can see phrases or words on the, on the left-hand side. And by the end of this section, you will know how to say these and also what they mean. So let's begin with the first one up here. This is a phrase that almost everyone knows. It's Yasu. Yeah, so yeah, so means hello. It's informal. I usually use it with people who are the same age as yourself or younger or with people you know very well? Yes. So second one is the Ganges. The Ganges. The Ganges. It is how are you in formal for how are you? It also actually means what are you doing? So literally it means what are you doing. So you will know which meaning is used depending on the context. So when you've got the context, you'll know which one is being used. Hadi go, which is pleased to meet you. Had it go. The fourth word here is the one that we learnt in the previous lecture, which is if Callisto, and it means thank you, Datastore. And the last word here, seeing NAMI seek NAMI, tsunami, which means sorry or or excuse me. Okay. So I'll just go back there. Yeah. So means hello. The gummies, me. Hawaii. And the next one had ICA pleased to meet you. If I stop, means thank you and see you. Nami means sorry or excuse me. Okay. So now we're going to practice these, these phrases so you can see the word on your screen. I'm going to give you a bit of time to say the word, bit of time. And then I'm going to repeat the words so you can check your answer. Okay, so say that word. Yeah, so the Ganges category Signal me. And that is the basic phases. The first words will come back to a lot of them in the first conversations. So you can maybe go back and review that if you if you struggle with that. And that's it for section 2, see you in section three. 7. 3.1 Reading Names: Okay, onto Section 3, and just to remind ourselves of our objectives. So in this course, we said that you will learn the sounds of the Greek alphabet. We've completed that, done that, and we're moving on to learning how to read Greek. What we haven't done yet is then had to have basic conversations in Greek. We'll get to that soon. So you'll see some names written in grief on the left. And the challenge here is two. To deduce what the names are in English because the English names. So have a look. I'll give you about 30 seconds to see to give you a chance. Okay. You can stop now. Okay. That's 30 seconds. First one is Suzanne. Second one, Daniel, third one, Kevin. Then we have Melissa, and finally an easy one, Tom. So this shouldn't be too tricky. The reason these exercises Here's to give you a bit of review, give you a bit more confidence and a bit more practice in reading Greek script. A couple of things to note. First of all, you can see the letter combinations here with Suzanne's name, omega epsilon Suzanne. And also you'll see the relevance of of the small line above the Alpha in Suzanne's name. This means that this is clearly not Susan. It's Suzanne. Relevant because the stress is on the second syllable here, stresses on the second syllable. Another couple of things to note. One is actually mainly this one, the pronunciation of Daniel's name. Now the name Daniel in Greek, you can see that the sound is between a and a TRE. And that's why we have this the knee before the DAF and Danielle. And you can see the difference. You can hear the difference in how his name is pronounced and Danielle and the rest of fairly simple. And so move on. We'll do another memory exercise in which you'll see their name pop up onto your screen. I'll give you a bit of time. And then I'll repeat. I'll say I'll tell you the answer. So here we go. Suzanne, danielle, Kevin. Melisa. Tom. Right. Let's make this a bit trickier. Now, I'm going to speak to you in Greek. So the next part of this section will be in Greek. I know it might be a bit difficult, but bear with it. You'll be fine in the end. And you kind of know the instructions anyway. So this will be a good chance for you to be immersed in Greek and see how you feel to get out of your comfort zone. Sufi, ascii, lipid, the Pinto? No, madam low-status. Get that Bonilla day metapoem in the photo on Noma, Aphrodite. Afro DT. The lifted or anomer. Low needs us. Low need us. But thereto anomer, Sophia. Sophia, the Datastore, Noma, Nao fetus. And they all fetus. Dope, MTO anima, a left 30-year a lift 30 daughter and anonymous. Bonilla did to Obama. Give me that. That's a spot to anima Yana. It looks nice as this society. Low need us. Sofia. Nao fetus index, the leader summit, the maxima Mathematica. 8. 3.2 Places and Food: Okay, We're back to English. I hope the immersion into listening only in Greek wasn't too traumatic. But it's what you will face when you go to Greece or Cyprus. So you can be prepared for it in some kind of way. So you can see a map here of Greece and Cyprus. We're moving on now to places and food. So essentially this is more practice in reading Greek letters and being comfortable with reading common words and places and foods in Greek. So you can see a, B, C, D, E. I'm not sure how good your geography is. You might be excellent or it might be awful like mine. But the idea here is to just have a bit of fun with, with language and with the lessons. So we've got places here. So we have our places. On the bottom left. You need to map the place names on the bottom left with the areas on the map. Again, I'll give you 30 seconds. You can stop now. Okay, time's up. So here you have, you have that difficulty festival of reading the names in Greek and then figuring out what they actually are. For example, the, the name in Greek might be different from English. And so you'll need to work that out yourself as well. But hopefully you did a good job. And here are the answers. So number 1, Athena is C, That's where Athens is. So that's Athens and English. Next one is, the next one is Thessaloniki. And that is this law, Neechi, you do just say it the same way. Some people call it Salonica. Always sounds a bit strange to me. Third one, keep ROS is down there. That's the island of Cyprus. So that is a country, not a city. And it is obviously different in Greek, deep rows in Greek and Cyprus in English. Santorini, number four is their iconic island. Santorini is pretty much the same in English. Santorini in Greek, Santorini in, in English. So you can see the difference between the deaf and the T of English. Pronunciation of those is slightly different. And finally, is if Bacchae, which is that small island there, and in English would be ithaca. Okay, so hopefully you enjoyed that and had a little bit of a chance to look at the map as well of Greece and Cyprus. Moving on now to food. Now here is a menu that might seem a bit daunting because the soul in Greek, of course, when you go to Greece or Cyprus, you'll find lots of menus in, in English as well as in Greek. But it's always nice to be able to, to work out the, the Greek and not just use English all the time. So if you are faced with a Greek menu, this is, these are some of the dishes that you might, you might come across. So firstly, let's go back here. Obviously you can see, you can work out the, the three, the three titles or subtitles of the menu. But bigger. Or if Degas, starters and Kyrios Beata, beauteous Beata, main dishes, tissues and the pia deserts. And we're going to spell this in English. 2-sat, yes. Okay. So you've got your status, your main dishes and your desserts. And here are some pictures that will help you. Now in Santorini, especially you'll get these specialty of Of the island that dominated gift there this with just small deep fried, deep fried tomato. We balls. Fantastic, Very nice. Then CQI is a popular dish with yogurt and cucumber and other hubs means unknowns are lambda. Is this here, which is an OB gene salad literally translated, but it is a little bit spicy. I think there's quite a lot of garlic in there as well. Lusaka us, you probably know, is probably increases national dish. Very, very popular in, in Greece. They Zola hearing me is a POC shop. Topology, is octopus right there. Suv like also, like key, depending on whether you're in Greece or Cyprus, SUV is singular, so lucky. And SUV like gap is plural, is how you would you would say it in separate Greek in Cyprus. Calamari is round here. Calamari is squid. Love wacky. Here. C bus. By that, get at Nicea. Lamb chops over there. Gifted this gifted ICA. Are here. They are small. They're meatballs, Lusaka, Spotify egos. And we're going back to almost a cast hosted by egos, means vegetarian, vegetarian Lusaka. And then we'll move on to the deserts back lavas is this yummy thing done there by clovis is a pastry with pistachio nuts. I think it's honey. Very, very nice. Resume is rice pudding, which is quite popular. And fruit those Atlanta is fruit salad, as you may have guessed. So again, maybe a good moment for a screenshot here. Obviously you can go over this again later on. One of the best things about going to Greece and Cyprus is of course the food. So I'm listening activity here. You can see the menu. The menu that I used before to teach the vocabulary and have a listen. And think about what I order. Yeah, I would echo that Barrow tomato gift there, this giddiness Beata Lusaka fortified ego, battle, buck lava. So what did I order? You can pause the video here if you want to write your answers down. But these are the answers. So borrowed tomato gift Devis that battle means I'll have, I'll have, I'll take literally translated. But in English we would say I'll have, It's about automatic giftedness. And then for the main dish I hadn't Osaka, Osaka ego. And for dessert I had back lama or clubhouse. Like love AS s missing there. Okay. So that's it for the places and food. Again, I encourage you to review and watch this as many times as you need to in order for you to memorize all of this. See you in section four. 9. 4.1 The Conversations: Okay, so you've made it to the last section of the course. And just to remind you what you've done already, you've learned the sounds of the Greek alphabet. You've learned how to read Greek words. And now you're going to learn how to have for conversations in Greek basic conversations. Okay, this is the first conversation. And this conversation is introducing yourself. This is the conversation. Lastly, me, Maria had IGA, Maria, avoid my Yarbus cerebelli. Okay. That's the conversation. And now I'm just going to pick it apart a bit. So from our previous lessons, you should know that yes, who is hello? And actually you should know the whole of this sentence, e-mail, I'm and Medea. So in Greek, you will say if you're a woman, you say E, you'll use e. And if you're a man, you'll use 0. So email Mario's for example. So yes, so EMA Medea. Yeah, so email Mario's. And then the next person says, Heidegger Maria, how you might remember means pleased to meet you. And then the other one says a volume or euros introducing himself. And finally, Medea says hero Bali, yellow body. This is another way of saying, pleased to meet you. So a little bit of variety, the FPU, you can use either one. And that's the first conversation. So this is the second conversation. And it focuses on asking someone whether they speak English. So here is the conversation, here is the dialogue, and you can listen to it. Trigonal me, me La, Liga, me out. Thank God. Right. So you can see Maria very happy that she's met someone who speaks English. Here. Signal AMI, we said could mean sorry or excuse me. And clearly here means excuse me because she is stopping a stranger. Here. We've got molality. Molality. And that is speak. Do you speak? Do you speak? And then we have here Anglican and giga is, you probably guessed is English. And that S is in there. Means yes. And he says me, look, here. He means I speak I speak English. I mean, a lot bigger. So that's the second conversation. In the third conversation, you'll be asking how much something is. Here is the dialogue. Going on the bus? I love a lot. In this set. I have a bottom. Okay, so it's getting a little bit more complicated now. But really, you only need to remember a few things. First of all, NAMI is review and we said previous conversation, it means excused. And then we have vasa in posa in. So if we just separate this, this sentence into two different parts of boss, I mean, it is how much is and the resolver law is. You may remember from the previous lesson, that is rice pudding. So dot is overflow. How much is the rice pudding? And here you can see the the question mark that looks like a semicolon, but it's actually a question mark in Greek. And celebrate those is the waiter. Ok. And he says, in this book, yeah, mere medieval. In it's, it's for euros, for one, for one dish, 0 for one portion. And then Maria says, oh, they're subtle. Borrow. Again. You might remember. Borrow. You might remember that Roboto from the listening exercise in the previous lesson. Subtle pattern means, maybe you've guessed it, means I'll take it. I guess I'll have that part of my horrible handwriting. And over here or there, or there means, great, great. I'll take it. Okay, I thought the battle and that's the third conversation. Okay. Here's the fourth and final conversation. This is the dialogue and you can listen to it, so you can only win it. I let them. In fear for these, we have both dust Alexia, appellant, the opt-in go Zina again. Now that might seem a little daunting, but remember, we're asking where the toilet is and that's what Maria is doing. And so you can see the first word, tsunami means, excuse me. As we learned in the previous lesson. Over here, we have into a letter. And that should be fairly obvious. It is the toilet. And over here in a is, and where is Poo? Where is the toilet? So, point a to a letter. Now, assertively, daughters, who is the waiter? The waiter says, it's straight on. You will see at all on the right opposite the kitchen, it's there. Now, I'm not going to dissect these sentences because the most important thing for you is to be able to ask the question. Of course you want to understand the answer. Luckily, in Greece, people are very keen on making gestures and using body language. And that's the last conversation. Now, it's time for you to practice. You will do this through a quiz first to check that you understand the vocabulary. And then you're going to go through the conversations one by one. And you're going to actually speak to practice. 10. 4.2 Hello, I'm...: Okay. This is practice for the first conversation, which is Hello, I'm oh, yes. As email. Just to remind you, this is the dialogue and listen again. Yes, even Maria. Maria, avoid my yogis cerebelli. So in the next slide, you'll see an instruction to introduce yourself. And then you have a prompt to speak. And you listen afterwards to check your answer. Here we go. Okay. Hopefully you said something like this. Lastly, me, Maria. Maria away my yogis cerebelli. And that's the first conversation. 11. 4.3 Do you speak...?: Okay, Here's the second conversation and here's the dialogue. And you can listen to it. See you know, me, me, me out, thank God. Right. And now it's time to practice. You would go. Hopefully what you said sounded like this may lead to Angelica. Oh, thank God. And that's it. The second conversation. 12. 4.4 How much is...?: Okay, This is the third conversation. How much is cosine? Is the dialogue? And you can listen to it a lot. In this set. I have really, I mean, at the bottom. Okay, now it's time to practice. Here we go. Hopefully, you said something like this. A lot. In this set. I have really, I mean, at the bottom. And that's the third conversation. 13. 4.5 Where's the...?: This is the fourth and final conversation, whereas the buena here is the dialogue. And you can listen to it. So you can only win it. I let them in FEM for these me up. What does Alexia? I've been on the upswing go Zina, again that OK, and now it's time to practice. Remember, you're practicing to say, Excuse me, where's the toilet? Hopefully you said something like this. So you can only when do I let them in if fear for me or post test Alexia, I've been on the uptick go Zina again. And that's it. 14. Bonus Lesson: Numbers: Okay, This is a bonus lesson in a Greek course for complete beginners. And it's the numbers in Greek. Couldn't really let you go without teaching the numbers in Greek. So repeat with my floating head. V0, three-year, etc. Okay, those are the numbers in Greek. Again, you can do that exercise and go back again and again until you feel confident to do this. Now you can test your memory. I'm going to just swipe so you can see numbers popping up on your screen and you need to say what number it is. I will say the number so you can check your answer. Epitaph. Then the V0, this setup in xy in there. That a year. And that's it. Thank you very much. 15. Bonus Lesson: More Greetings: Hey guys, So this is the last lesson in the Greek horse for complete beginners. And I wanted to do it on video instead of on PowerPoint for a number of reasons. Mainly because I was bored of using PowerPoint. And I wanted a bit of, a bit of variety to end the course with. This lesson is really important. So far, I have taught taught to you. Yeah, so, yeah, so and this means how low and it also means goodbye. It is used in informal situations and you can only use it when you're talking to one person. If you're speaking to somebody, you're meeting somebody for the first time in Greece or in Cyprus, we would use Yes us. Yes us, Yes us. This is plural of yesterday. So if you're meeting more than one person, if you're meeting someone you don't know for, for the first time, or you're meeting people in a more formal situation than you are to use Yes us, Yes us. Next, I want to move on to three pieces of vocabulary that are very useful in Greece and in Cypress, especially because they're so commonly used in those countries. The first one is Good morning. Gallium. Gallium, gallium matter. So definitely if I was meeting somebody in the morning, I would say gallium into instead of Yasser. Second one is gullies better. This means good evening. Galleys. Speller. Got lease, bear, garlic, spare. Again, I would use this in the evening instead of yes or no, Yes us. And the final one is gallium Ithaca. This means good night. Golly Nika, galley Nikita got a mic there. Again, very commonly used. So really worth noting. Okay, and there's the bonus lesson on greetings. You can try the quiz next to see how much you understood of that. Yes, us. 16. What Next?: So what do you do now that you've learned the basics of Greek? Well, that really depends on why you're learning Greek in the first place. If you're going to Greece and Cyprus on holiday, you don't need to learn Greek at a high level. But when you're there, you can speak Greek to the locals. They will absolutely love you for it. It might seem a little scary, but once you do it, once, then it'll get easier and easier. The other thing I strongly recommend is when you go there to buy a small notebook to keep track of the vocabulary that you're learning. And it's really going to be interesting to the back on the notebook. And you'll learn so much just by doing this. If you want to learn Greek to a high level and communicate effectively, then I recommend the following. The first is to follow teachers on social media. There are some really good Greek teachers out there on Instagram and Facebook. And I recommend you follow them. You can also join some groups like Greek language learner and greed language and culture on Facebook, they're really good communicate communities to join. The second thing is to use applications like I talkie and memorize to help you. If you use memorize just ten to 15 minutes a day, that will really help you out. The third thing you can do is to immerse yourself in the language. And this is for, for serious learners, you need to make Greek for the next two or three months. Make it your goal to speak Greek every day as much as possible. Putting post-its around the room, things like that, and listening to great music, all of that kind of thing. And the final thing is, of course, to take a longer course and a face-to-face course. This is still, I think, the best way to learn. You meet new people who have similar interests to you and your learning. You improve so much quicker. Okay, that's it for me. Thank you very much for joining this course and good luck. Your Greek language learning journey. Cool. See you later.
