Since you're knew, you might not know about the bonus lessons that duolingo offers. Bonus lessons are lessons you can purchase from the lingot store. These lessons include idioms, flirting and Christmas. However the Christmas lesson is only available to purchase at Christmas. Hope this helped! :)

Really?That sounds so interesting!It gives you a deeper insight into the language and its culture and especially in Spanish,where the idioms is one of the most important aspects of the languages.Thnks for the information!

Si basicamente tu idioma natal es el griego y hablas español, deberías crear un curso de griego para hispanohablantes. En la sala de incubación de Idiomas de Duolingo (Creo que haci se llama) esta la opción de ayudar o Crear un curso, te vendría muy bien para ayudar a hispanohablantes que quieren ir a Grecia o paises que hablan ese idioma. PD: Welcome to Duolingo ;).

Acabo de ver y para hablantes de griego solo hay para aprender Ingles, podrías contribuir en un curso de español en la incubadora de idiomas. Si tienes suficiente tiempo para contribuir y crear el curso lo podrías hacer. Si te decides por hacerlo te deseo buena suerte ;).

Buena suerte con su aprendizaje :) The Greek course should be here any time soon so there will be certainly a lot of people asking for help with the sentences on the forum, of course if you want to be helping this way. It's actually quite fun.

Most certainly. But I have no idea when :) I was planning to start it a month ago but there has been some delay and the course has not been released yet. I'm happy I've taken Hebrew instead though. I'm planning on starting two new trees around October: one harder and one easier (like now Hebrew+Swedish) but I don't know which trees to choose. Hungarian seems like the best choice for the harder one.

I don't know in which category to put Greek :) It's Indo-European but not a Romance language. Especially I wonder whether there will be a lot of unfamiliar vocabulary or it will be fairly similar. There may also be some new courses released in the meantime (although sadly it doesn't look like it's going to happen). And maybe I will read sometehing that will inspire me to start Greek as soon as possible :)

You should really learn Greek!And do not worry about the vocabulary,there are a lot of words of Greek origin in almost every language!(here is an article which can make you perceive this:http://www.enhancemyvocabulary.com/word-roots_greek.html).Greek is spoken by about 12 million people in the world and is an official language in Greece and Cyprus(however in Cyprus is spoken the Cypriot dialect-different to the vernacular language of Greece-which is a really interest dialect to study if you already speak Greek).You will learn one of the most Ancient languages in the world,a language with rich literature,a language wich has its origins from one of the most ancient civilizations in the world,the language spoken by Aristoteles,Euripides,Pericles,Alexander the Great,etc.Greeks live in every corner of the world and especially in Germany,Australia,USA,Albania,Romania,Sweden etc.The pronunciation is relatively easy and can become easier if you already speak Spanish(their pronunciation is almost the same).Everything in Greek is read as it is written,we Greeks speak very clearly and slowly in comparison with other people and we not tend to swallow syllabi or words when talking to others.The grammar is a bit tough though,but do not worry,even Greeks do not know how to use all the 4 cases appropriately!You will feel very proud of yourself by the time you have learnt this language and you will have the opportunity to understand the vocabulary of other languages better!:)Hope I convinced you:)

Thank you :) I'm aware that there are a lot of words of Greek origin across European languages (I'd even say that your list is way too short). But I mostly don't know if it has a lot of its 'own' vocabulary unfamiliar to me. For example I know French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese as well as other European languages strongly influenced by Latin but I can understand Latin only sometimes because the cognates are mostly used in specialistic terms (like science, politics) or they've just changed too much. When I see a text in Greek I can hardly find a few familiar words.

But now the more I think about it the more optimistic I get. Also, the big plus is the new alphabet. I actually already know it (ahh physics symbols :)) so it should be easy but I can't really read it and it would be nice to learn it. I especially love the Greeks for 'inventing' vowels! Just imagine we use abjads today... Frightening :D (you can't appreciate it enough until you start learning Hebrew or Arabic. Lately I've been having nightmares with the Hebrew script).

Yes, I sure will. But as I said, I don't know if I should consider it an 'easier' or a 'harder' one. It is all about the time I will be able to spend on Duolingo (I need twice as much time to complete the same number of lessons in Hebrew than in Swedish!) and I am not sure if doing Hungarian and Greek simultaneously won't be too much.

7/24/2016, 1:59:53 PM

https://www.duolingo.com/Dinnamarca

So,just prioritize them.You could learn Hungarian first if you have time because it is a bit harder than Greek and spend the summer of 2017 learning Greek :)
