Παρακαλώ. You're welcome. I highly recommend the above links to my non-Greek friends who wanna learn some Greek, especially if they are interested in how the structure or the vocabulary of my native language, seems like.

I find listening to the radio really helps. London Greek Radio (LGR) is really good. They mix between speaking English and Greek (often one right after the other). Plus some great Greek tunes! http://www.lgr.co.uk/

Keyboard-wise, I absolutely recommend Google Input Tools:

https://www.google.com/inputtools/

It gives you the full ability to type in Greek, Chrome users can install it as a browser extension, you can see a visual representation of the Greek keyboard layout on your screen if you feel that you need it, and it is very easy to turn it on and off as needed.

I found this book very useful:

Title: Modern Greek Grammar Notes for Absolute Beginners, Subtitle: A User-friendly Grammar for Levels A1/A2, Authors: Poulopoulou, Maria.

It can be freely downloaded from here: https://repository.kallipos.gr/handle/11419/4393?locale=en

There is a PDF version and an e-book version of it. Especially the e-book version is very nice, in that version you can click on the Greek text and it will be pronounced by two people (a female and a male voice).

Thanks for the sharing. But I cannot open the ePub version of the book with any ePub reader apps. I don't know if there's any problem with the file or it is the problem of my devices.

    I've discovered that wikibooks has an awful lot of Greek lessons (https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Modern_Greek) and in a useful format that allows using them alongside Duolingo.

    Found this http://www.logosconjugator.org/list-of-verb/EL/1/ site for conjugations. I don't know how it compares to http://cooljugator.com/gr/ but I like how it lists all the tenses with each voice. This is how I learned it and I think it would be harder to learn without learning all of the voices together.

      You can do the free course of Greek from Mango Languages (212 basic and intermediate lessons) through de library system in the United States. A user explained in Spanish how to enter the page a while ago (I don't know if the process is the same now). (Sorry if I make mistakes, I am not a native speaker). The original explanation is here https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5914050 . I have made the following summary in English:

      -Go to the Kenton Library page: http://ezproxy.kentonlibrary.org/login?url=http://libraries.mangolanguages.com/kenton-county/start

      -Go in with the following "Library Card Number": 23126000001122.

      -Choose the language of the page (English, Spanish, etc).

      -Sign in with your e-mail.

      You have guest access here: https://connect.mangolanguages.com/kenton-county/login?u=772360 You only have to go to "all languages" and choose "Greek".

      Wiktionary!

      https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Category:Greek_lemmas

      Wiktionary is awesome, but just keep in mind that it may have errors, just like any wiki site. For instance, there said that the word for bow (like in a hair bow), φιόγκος, was neuter, when it is really masculine. I changed that myself.

      Also Wordreference is fine:

      They look great, thanks. And I didn't realize that you'd already posted xanthi.ilsp.gr, although you seem to kind of undersell it with only stating that it's a site that would help people with the alphabet.

      I greatly appreciate reading printed comics in modern Greek, in particular Asterix since I know the translation to French from my youth. You can find quite a large choice of comics heroes at http://www.mamouthcomix.gr/ . They are distributed in particular by https://www.facebook.com/pg/comicstrip.gr/about/?ref=page_internal . I bought 12 books, got them by post, and was extremely happy with this bookshop located in Athens - I recommend it.
