This is a real fun book with which you can learn basic vocabulary (clothes, animals,countryside, home, parts of the body, around town, useful expressions).
It contains games and puzzles like matching games, find the hidden objects, search a word, label the picture, etc. and tear-out flashcards to memorize the words. In the beginning, it has a pronunciation guide describing the sounds of Greek and of course it contains the answer key to check your progress.
In its new, updated version, this book now DOES include the gender of the nouns (you learn every noun with its article, which didn't happen in the previous versions of the book). It now also contains an accompanying CD that will help make pronunciation easier.
Vocabulary doesn't need to be a pain anymore with this book! (What a pity that they haven't published something similar for intermediate vocabulary!)
