We’ve all travelled abroad with the best of intentions when it comes to speaking the language, only to falter when it comes to the crunch. This quick and constructive course gives you the Greek you need to talk to the locals – and crucially, the confidence to put it into practice. As well as providing essential vocabulary and phrases, the course also aims to improve your understanding of spoken Greek, so that you can feel sure of yourself in two-way conversations.

Buy this after you have achieved a level of competance using the Michel Thomas method - by the same people as this book. Although they say this is for beginners also, it is not as helpful as their other work to build knowledge of the structure of the language. Once you have mastered that I can see that this book will be really useful. Till then - in my opinion - it is best left on the shelf.

In just 75 minutes you can learn enough Greek to get by on your holiday. Elisabeth Smith has used her wide teaching experience to write a fun audio course that teaches you enough to communicate all your basic needs. The course comes on one 75-minute download and teaches only the essential words and phrases, which are extended by the use of body language. The accompanying booklet lists the words and phrases taught on the recording - a written record of what has been learned.

A useful tool to include amongst other audio books in the approach to learning Greek. Easy to listen to.

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.

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.

By listening to these specially composed melodies with their rhythmic repetitions of Greek and English a few times, you pick up over 200 essential words and phrases that will not just be on the tip of your tongue, but will be burned deeply into your long-term memory in next to no time.

I purchased this along with the Michel Thomas book and the One Day Greek book. Repetition is the key - but I think I might go mad if I continue to repeat the Earworms learning tape.... the music is beginning to mask the vocabulary.

I think too that it's value lies more in building vocabulary than teaching the structure of the language, something the Michel Thomas tape achieves very well.

I am glad to have the Earworms book - variety is good in any repetitive method - but I won't be buying book 2 just yet - although I have ordered the foundation and advanced courses by the Michel Thomas method.

The One Day Greek book is also an easier listen than this.
