5.0 out of 5 stars A great help for self studying modern Greek 27 Jun 2007
By Mr. B. M. Abel VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
the bext textbook for self study, 27 Jun 2007
By Bernard M. Abel "bearliners" (Langley, Berks, Angleterre) - See all my reviews

Learning modern Greek can be a bit of a daunting task.
Specially if you have some knowledges of classical Greek . The modern pronunciation, the iotacism, words that looks alike but do mean something different.. well, it can be a bit scary.

Now, I must say that "Greek Today" is a REALLY GOOD self study textbook.

TEXTBOOK: The main book is quite thick and is in a A4 format. It comes along with a workbook that I definitely recommend as it gives great exercises and a great way to make sure you know your vocabulary. All the explanations are in English,and also, the course comes with 2 CD roms, 1 for Mac, one for Windows, with recordings of the dialogue by Greek actors.

Studying that course is pleasant, an easy task and honestly, it makes modern Greek a Doodle to learn compared to its classical sister. NO ghastly hard conjugations, reduced declensions.. what a joy. Greek Today gives you all the pleasure of learning a great and lovely language without the headaches. The website also gives you extra material to study and loads of texts, videos and is very user friendly.
I have tried other textbooks, and THIS one is by far my favorite.

WORKBOOK : This 200p, A4 format workbook is the must buy complement for anyone already using the main textbook "Greek Today" by Peter Bien

Each chapter of that workbook does match each chapter of the main coursebook and gives you loads of various exercises, drills, Multiple choice, crosswords, fill in, phrases to translate..
along with some interesting input about Greek actual culture and civilisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent workbook 22 Jun 2007
By Mr. B. M. Abel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This 200p, A4 format workbook is the must buy complement for anyone already using the main textbook "Grek Today" by Peter Bien

Each chapter of that workbook does match each chapter of the main coursebook and gives you loads of various exercises, drills, Multiple choice, crosswords, fill in, phrases to translate..
along with some interesting input about Greek actual culture and civilisation.

All the explanations are in English, BUT, do not expect to be able to use that workbook UNTIL you have mastered the Greek alphabet 1st chapter of the main textbook.

Studying Greek only by relying on that workbook is indeed a wate of money and time, as you would not have a clue what the book is talking about .
Like its title does say.
This is only a Workbook (even though a great and user friendly one, I must say) and you do need the main textbook to take full benefits of that excellent study tool .

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you have a Greek friend to help! 3 Jan 2008

Very detailed format. I am glad I have someone to help me as some of the lessons are confusing without added instruction. Definitely a book best suited for classroom instruction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed for home use only 8 Sep 2008
By K. C. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It has no answer key! It would be fine for a very fluent Greek speaker to use with a student, but not for a student alone, or in our case a non-Greek homeschool mom trying to teach her highschooler. The workbook includes a journal entry which is ridiculous. Who journals in a language they are just beginning to learn!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too advanced 26 Jun 2006
By Melody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was looking for a workbook that would be good for beginners. Practice with vocabulary words with pictures and simple phrases. This one had fill in the blanks, but the long sentences were in Greek and the multiple choises for the blanks were in Greek. No pictures, no hints. My boyfriend (Greek) made the comment, "Do they expect all the buyers to have a Greek boyfriend to teach it to them?" Obviously, I should have bought the text book to go with it, but that might have been too advanced as well. I settled on CD's for the car and that's worked out much better.
