We are happy to announce that the Omilo video course, “Everyday Greek Language”, is ready and is expected to be available online, from May 15th.
Do you also want to learn the daily Greek language? Would you like to be able to communicate in Greek at your hotel, with your Greek friends or order your food and drinks in Greek? Did you start learning Greek recently, but you were not in the mood to learn with typical course books, a classroom setup or a lot of grammar structures? If you feel like having a break from studying Greek formally, then here is another way of learning and motivate you to start speaking Greek from day one.
The video course is meant for everybody at a beginner’s level in Greek, as well as for those at an Intermediate level, who wish to review basic vocabulary and get new input. The course only requires you to know to read the Greek Alphabet. If you are not yet familiar with the Greek Alphabet, Omilo can help you out.
