I finished the Greek tree!

Wow! This was the most challenging thing I have done in a long time. I can't say I'm fluent, but I know a lot more Greek than I did when I started. Many thanks to the Greek team for their hard work creating, and now enhancing, this course. Now it's time to keep my tree golden and cement these lessons in my brain.

Congrats! Did you have any knowledge of the Greek language before? I thought to know Greek very well when I began the course, because I speak Greek for many years. Even though I find the course not easy at all. How difficult will it be for an absolute beginner?

I was an absolute beginner. The first challenge for me was simply learning to read the alphabet and pronounce the words. I felt like I was a little child learning to read all over again. I was also surprised by how little overlap between Greek and English, except in mathematics and philosophy. So, I found it a challenge to learn. I'm keeping my tree golden but I have to say that it is discouraging when 10 leaves turn in a day.

Now it's time to go to Greece! Or at least hear some Greek music.
