Congratulations to the Greek team! :)

The scope of this word it to learn the letters Ι, λ, ι, ά, δ, α. It is so beautiful to start Greek with Homer!

What is Iliad? There's a few words that I've never heard before.

The Iliad is an ancient greek epic poem attributed to Homer. Homer was an author and poet of the ancient greece. (Not Homer Simpson xD)

Well, you must have heard of the Trojan war, that's what Iliad is all about!

The Iliad is an ancient Greek epic poem written by Homer. It is about the Trojan war. The sequel is called The Odyssey.

I'm with you on that one. I didn't know what Iliad was either

What about Shahnameh by Ferdowsi? Has anybody heard of that?

But this isn't the topic here, is it? ;-)

I am surprised that the pronunciation sounds like 'iliasa' - not 'iliatha'. Is this unusual?

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/beccapanagakos

i speak greek, and this is not teaching the alphabet right at all, i recommend just learning online somewhere else or something idk why duolingo made it so difficult


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ultra742

I've read the Illiad! It's SO good


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RileyPage8

I would like to see descriptions for the words we are learning


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Blue-olingo

Great new word to learn- I will have to study on Tinycards. Y'all might wanna too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pifta

The name of the novel is Ilias, not Iliad, and the name is Homeros, not Homer, at least we always learned so in school. Maybe that's why others don't recognize it either


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kirakrakra

Well: The name of the epic is Ιλιάδα in modern Greek from the genitive Ιλιάδος of the old name Ιλιάς < Ίλιον the acropolis of Τροία/Troy which got its name from the mythical hero Ίλος son of Tρώας the mythical king of Troy
