* combine known elements into increasingly longer sentences and strings of sentences,
* create with language and function in informal situations,
* deal with concrete topics in the past, present, and future,
* meet social demands and limited job requirements,
* begin reading for meaning.

Note: In order for the Pimsleur Method to work correctly, you must first complete the Level I language program before proceeding to the Level II language program.

 

About the Greek Language

Greek has a documented history of 3,400 years, the longest of any single natural language in the Indo-European language family. It is also one of the earliest attested Indo-European languages, with fragmentary records in Mycenaean dating back to the 15th or 14th century BC, making it the world's oldest recorded living language. Today, it is spoken by approximately 17–25 million people in Greece (official), Cyprus (official), Albania, Bulgaria, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), Italy, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Egypt, Jordan and emigrant communities around the world, including Australia, United States, Canada, Germany and elsewhere.

Greek has been written in the Greek alphabet (the oldest continuously used alphabet, and the first to introduce vowels) since the 9th century BC in Greece (before that in Linear B), and the 4th century BC in Cyprus (before that in Cypriot syllabary). Greek literature has a continuous history of nearly three thousand years.

Greek is a language distinguished by an extraordinarily rich vocabulary. In respect to the roots of words, ancient Greek vocabulary was essentially of Indo-European origin, but with a significant number of borrowings from the idioms of the populations that inhabited Greece before the arrival of Proto-Greeks. Words of non-Indo-European origin can be traced into Greek from as early as Mycenaean times; they include a large number of Greek toponyms. The vast majority of Modern Greek vocabulary is directly inherited from ancient Greek, although in certain cases words have changed meanings. Words of foreign origin have entered the language mainly from Latin, Italian and Ottoman Turkish. During older periods of the Greek language, loan words into Greek acquired Greek inflections, leaving thus only a foreign root word. Modern borrowings (from the 20th century on), especially from French and English, are typically not inflected.

Like most Indo-European languages, Greek is highly inflected. Greek grammar has come down through the ages fairly intact, though with some simplifications. For example, Modern Greek features two numbers: singular and plural. The dual number of Ancient times was abandoned at a very early stage. The instrumental case of Mycenaean Greek disappeared in the Archaic period, and the dative-locative of Ancient Greek disappeared in the late Hellenistic. Four cases, nominative, genitive, accusative and vocative, remain in Modern Greek. The three ancient gender noun categories (masculine, feminine and neuter) never fell out of use, while adjectives agree in gender, number, and case with their respective nouns, as do their articles. Greek verbs have synthetic inflectional forms for:

* mood — Ancient Greek: indicative, subjunctive, imperative, and optative; Modern Greek: indicative and imperative (other modal functions are expressed by periphrastic constructions)
* number — singular, plural (archaic Greek also had a dual)
* voice — Ancient Greek: active, middle, and passive; Modern Greek: active and medio-passive
* tense — Ancient Greek: present, past, future; Modern Greek: past and non-past (future is expressed by a periphrastic construction)
* person — first, second, third
* aspect — Ancient Greek: imperfective, perfective (traditionally called aorist), perfect (sometimes also called perfective, see note about terminology); Modern Greek: perfective and imperfective

 


The Pimsleur Language Learning System  is an audio language acquisition mode fashioned by Dr Paul Pimsluer that highlights proactive engagement over rote memory. Within the training, the listener will repeat words and phrases delivered by indigenous presenters and produces new content by inference. As new keyword phrases are presented, the audience is inspired to echo some older key phrases. The prompts for any supplied word or phrase are gradually spread out in ever-increasing intervals. In between Nineteen Sixty Three and 1971, Dr Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi training courses while teaching at the UCLA The Pimsleur method stresses on skill in conversing, at the same time as competency in reading. These two aspects are developed as a result of 30-minute sessions, which are reiterated until a ranking of no less than 80% comprehension is achieved before moving forward to the following lesson. Inside the course of the tutorials, students pay attention to indigenous people of the subject spoken language as they communicate words and phrases in simultaneously the foreign language, as well as the student’s most important language. At calibrated periods, learners are persuaded to duplicate a phrase shortly after being attentive to the presenter. As the individual progresses through the program, the interval grows, as does the dimensions of the vocabulary. The programmes are made up of 30-minute regular practice sessions and short reading lessons
