More About the Author

Since graduating modern languages from Cambridge University in 1971 I have worked in educational publishing, specifically EFL publishing, with the majority of my career spent at Longman/Pearson. Since 1999 I have worked freelance as a consultant and project manager for ELT publishers, and have written Modern Greek materials with my wife, Hara Garoufalia-Middle.

Hara teaches Modern Greek at the City Lit in London. She first taught English in Athens with partners in a language school, then in London in various adult education centres, before concentrating on Modern Greek, first at the University of Westminster, then at the City Lit.

We are most proud of the Michel Thomas Greek courses we have written.

Start Greek with the Michel Thomas Method (Michel Thomas Series)

This is an excellent starter to learning this language, been trying on and off for a few years, but learned more in 20 minutes with this CD than anything else. There is lots of repetition and time to think about the response and the interaction element is fantastic. The "teacher" is clear and explains everything using interesting comparisons so that you can remember words.

I also order the Total Greek at the same time, the deliver on these items was excellent, ordered on the Monday and received by the Wednesday on the free delivery. Just a note, the Total Greek CD collection includes 8 CDS the first of which is the same as the Start Greek CD, so if you are likely to progress to the Total Greek package you might aswell just order this as it comes with the Start Greek CD anyway.

Excellent value for money, can't wait to progress further and put it into practice on my next trip to Greece!

This CD is the way to learn what is a difficult language. As a starting point I wish this had been available years ago. It is good for car and travel learning. Particularly in the car when you can repeat things out loud. The only irritating thing is you have to remember to skip the introduction which is rather long and could just as well be written on the box. Start to learn with this and you soon become confident enough to progress to the others CDs.

I did't know what to expect when i ordered "start Greek",but i have to say it does exactly what it says on the tin! we are off on holiday soon and I will be putting the course to the test. Even allowing for the fact that i am a "mature student", i was amazed at the ease with which i remembered the Greek language. I heartily recommend the Michel Thomas method!

Follows the traditional pattern of the "master" and very quickly had me confidently speaking some basic Greek. Like Michel's courses...It doesn't set out to give you voacabulary...it isn't a phrase book ...it does give you immense confidence to go further and a sound understanding of the basic principles.

A poor attempt at an introduction to learning a language. Setting aside for the moment the irritating voice of the lead speaker, I did not expect the recording to be of other 'students' stumbling over their pronunciation or getting wrong answers on my time. I want to hear how to say the words and what the optimum pronunciation should sound like. Generally unhelpful. I couldn't listen to the disc twice. I'll try another option.

Very disappointing as the Michel Thomas Spanish disc was very helpful.

I've used the MT method several times before so it was the obvious choice for beginners Greek. Good price and a good start to a new language.
