It's a possibility. That's the best answer at this time.

Ναι, probably. The English-Greek team are almost done with the beta stage, so they may start the reverse course soon. But first it has to be approved by Duolingo, reverse course must be stable (Phase 3), etc.

Right now, you can learn the language of Ελλάδα (Greece) through the reverse course (English-Greek, which I'm currently using right now) and hopefully, there might be one soon!

Don't worry about the instructions. If you know what it says in English, you'll get along :)

A very useful link for the Greek alphabet: http://www.ilearngreek.com/lessons/alphabet.L1.asp

Tip:

If you see accents, they are pronounced louder than the other sounds, as in some languages. The accents are in the last three syllables.

If you need any more help, I can help you (edit: you can go to the English-Greek discussion forums also).

I'm sure that eventually, a Greek course will be made. Currently, a team is working on an English course for Greek speakers. While you wait for Greek, please enjoy the five courses we currently have, soon to be seven.
