Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes
- with Pimsleur it's that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own
pace, and wherever you choose. Greek Phase 2 includes 15 hours of
spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading
instruction, and is designed to be used after completing Phase 1.
- In the first 10 lessons of Phase 2, you begin to use the past
tense. Structures become more complex and informal speech is
introduced. Conversations become fuller, and learners are able to
discuss business and social activities, manage shopping situations,
and express their interests. As you progress, vocabulary is
expanded and fluency increases.
- The next 10 lessons of Phase 2 allow you to further combine and
build upon known elements, and produce longer and more complex
sentences. You learn to bargain with shopkeepers, deal with
business situation, get and give medical information, and discuss
- In the final 10 lessons of Phase 2, you've doubled your
vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You'll
gain experience asking for assistance, finding a location that is
some distance away, and using relative structures - faster, slower,
etc. Sports and leisure activities are explored, as well as
shopping, changing money, and future travel plans. By the end of
Phase 2, you're speaking at a mid-intermediate level with
near-native pronunciation, and you are comfortable meeting most
social demands and limited job requirements.
Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons,
which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice
reading Greek, and to provide you with some insight into Greek
culture with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at
things you'll see when visiting Greece. A Reading Booklet to be
used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.
