1st rule of Duolingo: read the comments before posting.

2nd rule; read the Tips & notes on the page with the lessons

3.rd rule use the hover drop down hints....move your cursor over a word and the meaning will appear.

Now have a look at the links here. They are aimed at helping the learner form the ABCs through advanced lessons.

HOW TO ADD THE GREEK ALPHABET TO YOUR KEYBOARD Here are some links to easily convert your keyboard

For the web: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/23430663

For a cell phone http://www.wikihow.com/Change-the-Language-on-a-Cell-Phone

How to add the accent. On the Greek keyboard first type the key on the right of the Λ (L) (the semicolon :/;) then type the letter you want the accent on. On a mobile just hold the letter for an extra second or two and there will appear a variety of that letter with accents. Slide up to the one you want.

DICTIONARIES *(NOTE that no online dictionary is completely reliable. They only translate literally which can be far from the actual meaning. So, use with care.)

lexilogos seven in one My all time favorite. ==http://www.lexilogos.com/english/greek_dictionary.htm This also has a long list of resources. Be aware that any grammar books written before 1976 might be anachronistic

babylon Very good. ==http://translation.babylon-software.com/english/to-greek/

This is the most comprehensive and accurate source for Greek conjugations I've found: http://www.neurolingo.gr/online_tools/lexiscope.htm
