Hello George,


Your feedback is very helpful for us. I will forward your information to the rest members of the team for consideration before any future updates.

ευχαριστώ,


It would be very helpful to add phrases to the flash cards at some point. The lessons don't seem to follow any order. They're almost random. To allow a user to "save" and practice sections that need to be repeated the user either has to mark the entire lesson or only individual words.


It would also be a lot more useful to update the Greek Pod 101 dictionary to have all the verb conjugations. That way, users can go to one place and search for a verb and see all the tenses.


Thank you for responding,


George

Hello George,


Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the current system doesn't support adding sentences to the flashcards, only vocabulary.


We do hope you are enjoying the other features though, especially the free vocabulary lists.


About the verb conjugation and noun declension, please refer to the Beginner series. The grammar of this series focuses mainly on those two points.

https://www.greekpod101.com/index.php?cat=11

Then please also check the Upper Beginner series, especially lessons (2, 3, 6-8, 12-16, 19, 23, 24)


In Absolute Beginner there are also some lessons here and there (check lessons 2, 5, 6, 8, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 19, 20, 23) but for more detailed and intense verb conjugation learning you should check out the Intermediate series lesson 1-12:

https://www.greekpod101.com/index.php?cat=41

Please understand that at the Absolute Beginner level it's difficult to introduce all about nouns and verbs. It's a large part of Greek grammar and it requires some time and series in order to be covered.


For tables of verb conjugations, please check the following resource:

I hope all the above information will be useful. Please don't hesitate to contact us again if you need more help or have any questions.


Kind regards,

It doesn't seem very different. I still can't add complete phrases to the flash cards which is really one thing that makes Greek Pod 101 very difficult to learn with.


How do I do this?


Also there are no lessons that teach verb conjugation and noun conjugation for all the most commonly used words. Those lesson are here and there but there's no one spot to go to learn this.
