Learn another language the way you learnt your own.
You learnt your own language naturally and enjoyably: now you can learn Greek in the same way.
This is the first two hours of the eight-hour Greek Foundation Course. Join Michel Thomas's Hara Garoufalia-Middle and Howard Middle and two students in a live lesson and within the first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases. You will learn the language with the students, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course.
Join the millions of people worldwide who have learnt a new language with the Michel Thomas Method.

I have been so impressed by this that I have ordered the CDs with the Foundation and Advanced course.
Very logical construction and approach, and it is easy to listen again and again.
I bought the course four days before my wife and I went to Greece. I only had time to listen through it once. When I arrived in Greece I could communicate on a basic level with the people. One of the nice memories from this vacation was the warm smiles from the Greek people who appreciated the effort one makes to speak their language. You receive a better service and in some cases you will get friends for life. This course opens people?s hearts, because it helps the user to show kindness and respect with just a small vocabulary. And the teaching methods a very effective.
An easy introduction. I play this every time I drive over to Greece from the UK and feel very prepared by the time I arrive.
I've tried several different 'Learn Greek' courses over the years and this is the best by far. Very easy to understand and well presented. I'm about to buy the Foundation course now. This is THE best way to learn the language!
About 10 years ago, after many holidays spent in Greece as well as covering the BBC Greek course, I attended Greek for Beginners evening class, and then embarked on the Improvers course - in total, a period of three academic years of evening classes, resulting in 'freezing' when attempting to speak the language. This was partly due to the written work being considered as an important part of 'homework'.
What a mistake! Although I now regret giving all my Greek Language text books and dictionaries away, it doesn't affect the enjoyment because one can relax and speak it as it comes and with a wonderfully, slightly zany character as teacher on the Introductory Programme , I'm at last having fun experiencing the language at the age of 79.
