Wow. The Percy Jackson and the Olympians books are more famous than I thought. :)

I really enjoyed those books too. :)

That actually is one of the reasons why I started Greek.

As a mathematician, I decided to begin my study of Greek with the Στοιχεῖα, Euclid's Elements. I had no trouble simply diving in at the Definitions and Proposition 1, because I already understood what everything meant.

σημεῖόν ἐστιν, οὗ μέρος οὐθέν.

ἐπὶ τῆς δοθείσης εὐθείας πεπερασμένης τρίγωνον ἰσόπλευρον συστήσασθαι.

I will keep your recommendation in mind for when I get to that level in Modern Greek.

It does get confusing, however, before I started, my mom bought me a book called Greek Alphabet Code Cracker, not even knowing I was interested in Greek (I wasn't at that time). That book is very useful to help you learn the Greek Alphabet (despite the weird cover). Anyway, it is much easier to understand Greek, if you know the alphabet. Not saying you should learn Greek. It is a hard language and it is only my "part-time" language. (Spanish is my "full-time" language.

Ελληνικά γράμματα με ίδιο ήχο με τα Αγγλικό: Greek letters with same sound with English: Κκ, Λλ(Ll) Μμ(Mm), Νν(Nn), Οο(Oo), Ππ(Pp) Ρρ(Rr) Σσ(Ss), Ττ(Tt), Φφ(Ff)

Ελληνικά γράμματα με διαφορετικό ήχο από τα Αγγλικά: Greek letters with different sound from English: Αα, Ββ, Γγ, Δδ, Εε, Ζζ, Ηη, Θθ, Ιι, Ξξ,Υυ, Χχ, Ψψ

Ελπίζω να βοήθησα I hope to help

Yes. There are some Greek letters with the same sound, in English, and there are only 24 Greek letters (two less than English). That does make it easier.

I decided to try Greek as a part time language and I’m definitely getting better at it

Χρησιμοποιώ έναν μεταφραστή τώρα, αλλά αυτό με ενέπνευσε και τώρα παίρνω ελληνικά

Ι think you want to say "και τώρα μαθαίνω (=learn) ελληνικά". Right? ;) I am Greek and I know that it's a complicated language (and not as useful as English or German). So I admire people who try to learn! Συνέχισε να προσπαθείς!!!
