Welcome to SPEAK GREEK NOW — the most effective online Greek language learning system - designed to make learning Greek simple, practical, fast, fun, and affordable. You will be amazed at how quickly you will learn how to speak Greek!
My unique teaching method is the result of 30 years of research, field-testing, and professional development. Online instruction can help you pull all the pieces together so that you can master the Greek language in record time. Many programs make languages — especially Greek — difficult to grasp. Their programs focus on all the wrong things - words without context, rules of grammar that you barely understand in English and drills that don't make any sense.
This program is perfect for travelers who are planning upcoming trips to Greece — as well as for anyone interested in fully learning the Greek language - not only speaking it but understanding, reading and writing it!
The goal of investing in Speak Greek Now is for you to learn how to speak Greek with others effortlessly. There's no better way to do that than to have online tutoring so you can master your lessons and the language - and start speaking Greek just like someone who was born in Athens.
The best part? You don't ever have to leave the comfort of your own home! No traffic, no parking issues, no wasted time commuting. It is the best of all possible worlds. You can schedule half-hour or one-hour phone lessons from anywhere in the world at your convenience.
