Thanks so much

I just wanted to give a big thank you to the company and the Greek team. Learning greek has always been important for me because it was the language of my grandmother, who was born and raised in Greece. I loved to sit near her and listen to her phone conversations in Greek as a child, but I could never understand them. I picked up a few words here and there, but we don't really get to see each other much anymore... I have recently regained my will to learn and I'm very happy Duo has decided to release the Greek course so conveniently for me.

Maybe now I can just say at least one sentence to my grandmother in her beautiful native tongue :)

You're making me teary eyed. I know the feeling and I really hope the course will get you there. Don't hesitate to ask for assistance. Say hi to your γιαγιά from another granny.

An enormous thank you to the Greek team, both contributors and alpha testers for all the hours of unpaid work they have done to bring this course to us. Thanks also to the Duo staff for all their efforts.

I have only one problem with the Greek course so far and that is that I really have to be dedicated to learning Greek now, as I have to fulfill a promise I made to a friend many years ago ..... to learn Greek as soon as there was a course available ..... A promise I am now delighted to keep. :-))

That's great! It's really cool that your grandmother is Greek, my grandmother and parents are Italian...But Italian isn't nearly as cool as Greek <3
