1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, avoid until revised 25 Jun. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely loaded with errors and should be avoided, until they take the time to come up with a revised edition. Only gave it 1 star because it's not possible to give 0! I am only a student of Greek myself (certainly no expert) and yet I found it full of Greek spelling mistakes, Greeklish pronounciation errors, random spaces midword and inconsistent pronounciations and spellings, the formatting also leaves a lot to be disired.

Nothing special as a book but also so many mistakes!! I am Greek and got that for a friend but the amount of mistakes must mean that they just passed it through an automatic OCR software or something... If you have it I would recommend avoiding the suggested 'Do you have any children?' phrase. Or at least don't be too surprised if everyone bursts out laughing... :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version VERY Disappointing 28 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This phrase book is so poor I cannot imagine in what respect the publisher thinks it is suitable for a kindle.

I often find phrase books frustrating to use, will I find the word for 'tomorrow' under 'useful phrases', 'days of the week' or reserving a table / room etc. So I thought a kindle version would be so much better since surely I would be able to search the book. But no!

Even when I am on a page with the word I am looking for, the search facility cannot find it.

The dictionary has no way of navigating to a particular letter, so every time you look for a word you have to scroll from A.

I have not tried any other publisher's phrase books, but this one is not worth buying in the kindle version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this book. 26 May 2014
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If this had of been bought as a hard I would have taken it back and asked for a refund. There are so many mistakes that its embarrassing. Even as a new student of Greek I could see the mistakes the Greek letter P missing and words and phrases incorrect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors to be helpful 27 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just from viewing the first 20 pages you can see that lower case π [pi] is missing from words, for example μπύρα [beer] is written as μύρα. Since visitors with no Greek language experience will probably use the phonetic pronunciations, this may not be a problem for many users, but not much help when deciphering menus or street signs. Very sloppy of Collins to release this Kindle version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Collins Greek phrasebook 28 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this was riddled with spelling mistakes, especially letters that had been missed out. It was only useful if you already had a good enough command of the language to know that letters were missing. For beginners it is hopeless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy book on Kindle 25 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We're taking this with us on the Kindle when we go to Greece on holiday for the first time and have been using it alongside an audio learning Greek course. It seems to be well organised, covering the basics, and gives you phrases for a range of different situations. As is often the case, the pronunciation guides are a bit fanciful, which is why having an audio-based course which encourages you to mimic the phrases is really essential if you want to learn to communicate. I would rate this as a good second string to an audio learning course. One problem with the Kindle version (ours anyway) is that the Greek letter pi (lower case) fails to display at all in the earlier sections of the book. It seems to be ok in later sections.

1.0 out of 5 stars too many errors 25 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very poor. There are loads of errors both in the Greek and pronunciation. If you don't know any Greek, this will mislead you. Do not buy.
