Basic Greek for those that are unfamiliar

I remember doing posts like this on YouTube in my early days but they were so bad that I deleted them after a couple of years. They are still in Facebook ‘s memory bank though so when that the day turns up in memories I get reminded of the progress I have made.

Dimitri, the presenter does these videos so much better than I could ever do and with more subtitles as they are very difficult to synchronise.

In case you are wondering why I am promoting these videos it’s to show the Greek language in the best possible way since who better than a native speaker in his home country. I most certainly couldn’t do a better job. It shows the different levels of understanding that are present as you progress in your language learning journey. I hope you all find them informative like I have.

As this is the first video in the series there are 2 to follow and if you wish to just watch them without my commentary here they are :-

The effect of English on Greek

More complex Greek

Best wishes

    I have always been fascinated by Greece and Greek culture and history, I have yet to visit Greece. The only Greek words that I know come from the prayer of”Christos Anesti” (they used to teach it to us since I belong to the Greek Orthodox church, but I have forgot about it:D)
