Conquered the Greek "Tree" Today!

I am happy to report my completion of all Greek (Modern) modules - 74 of them! I think it took me about 3 1/2 months. Despite this accomplishment, it's still all Greek to me (ha! ha!). Going to Crete this year, so this language should come in handy. Here's something you may want to consider: "The challenge in learning languages is not to do something somebody else has never done before; rather, it is doing the things that anybody can do, but most never will!" Hope many of you become Polyglots!!

What does "εις" mean?

It's the old form of the preposition σε, i.e. roughly "at, to".

I just began today! Do you understand basic Greek after finishing the Duolingo tree. I am excited to find out! How long did it take you to finish?

No. Far from comprehending Greek. Once you leave the Romance languages, it gets much harder to master the other languages. There are (4) categories of languages (I thru IV). "I" is the Romance languages: Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian and Romanian. Category IV is hardest--Finnish, Russian, Chinese and others. Since I have accomplished 4 of the 5 romance languages, I believe Greek (completing the tree) took me less than four or five months.
