Hi Joe,


Thank you for contacting us and I'm sorry to get back to you late but I had to consult the rest of the team first. We are aware of this and improvement of this old series is already under discussion, however, I can't say at the moment when this will happen. I do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, please let me know.


You will find προτείνει (3rd person) as προτείνω in the first person in the dictionary.


Kind regards,


Stefania

It would a lot easier if the Lesson Notes were written in Romanization form AND in Greek spelling. I reached to someone who was able to help me find the Greek spelling so I could add the following words, that were in the Lesson Notes, to my Word Bank:


Χωριάτικη σαλάτα

Μουσακάς

Καλαμαράκι

Κατάστημα

Κύριο πιάτο


Προτείνει (protíni) was not in the Greek dictionary. Perhaps it is in the dictionary under a different form.

Hi Joe,


Thank you for contacting us.


In general, all the lessons with a vocabulary section introduce no more than 10 words so there will always be vocabulary you need to look up separately in order to add it to the Word Bank. I'm really sorry but it's the way these lessons were designed. From my experience learning languages, most text books also work in the same way.


Of course, if you have any questions about a specific word or phrase you can't find, don't hesitate to contact us :)


Kind regards,


Stefania

There should be an easy way to add all the Greek words covered in the lesson to my Word Bank for easy review. I can only add select words. I have to look in the Greek Dictionary and add them from there. Some words I cannot find in the greek dictionary, such as katástima, Horiátiki saláta, Musakas, etc

Γεια σου Ρενέ,


I think what you are looking for is a structure we call δυνητική οριστική and is usually part of a conditional or a modal phrase:

It's not a tense per se, that's why you haven't found it on Lexigram.


More details about Greek conditionals on lesson 24 of the Upper Intermediate series:

Also, the lessons on modality (21, 22, Upper Intermediate) might seem helpful as well:

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Γειά σας,


I am trying to understand the verb tense and how it works in Greek. I understand that it means "I would like" which is a conditional verb form expressing in that case politeness... but I cannot find that verb form in lexigram.gr. What am I missing here?


Σας ευχαριστώ!

Hello Mary,


I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble navigating our website.

Please let me know if there's something specific that gives you trouble and I will assist as much as possible.


I understand that it might appear complicated at first, but once you get familiar with it, it will be quite easy.


The main thing to focus on at first is the "Browse Lessons" button. Once you select a series and a lesson (according to your level), you can click on "lesson audio" in order to listen to the whole lesson and "Download PDFs >> Lesson notes" in order to have a visual aid to the audio lesson.


I hope this is helpful. Please don't hesitate to ask in case you have any questions.


Kind regards,


Stefania

I would love to make use of this site but it is far too complicated. Very discouraging! I spend more time trying to figure out the site than studying Greek. Other members of my family who are really computer literate are having the same problem. I think this not a winner.

Hello Ιουστίνα!


There is no difference! It's just an alternative form on the following indefinite pronouns:

κανένας/κανείς, καμία/καμιά, κανένα

They are declined as ένας, μία, ένα and only in singular.


By the way your sentence is PERFECT! Everything in place, words, accent marks, commas....:smile:


Good work!

What is the difference between κανείς and κανένας? Thank you.


Ναι, μου αρέσει πολύ το σουβλάκι, ειδικά όταν το τρώω σε μία ταβέρνα στην Ελλάδα.

Yes, I like souvlaki very much, especially when I am eating it at a taverna in Greece.
