Γεια σου Amber,


Thank you for contacting us about this. I suggest you start with the very basics: the alphabet and the pronunciation. We have several series dedicated to these, so please consider starting with these ones:

https://www.greekpod101.com/lesson-library/greek-alphabet-made-easy-video/

https://www.greekpod101.com/lesson-library/ultimate-greek-pronunciation-guide/

https://www.greekpod101.com/lesson-library/pronunciation/


When finished with these, you would then be ready to start with one of our main series, the Absolute Beginner series. We have several of these, I share one with you now:

https://www.greekpod101.com/lesson-library/conversational-greek-for-absolute-beginners/


You can always look for more lessons using our Lesson Library feature at https://www.greekpod101.com/lesson-library/.


Later on, as your knowledge is growing, you can go to Upper Beginner, Lower Intermediate, Intermediate, and finally the Upper Intermediate series. Each lesson of these series contains a dialogue and focuses on grammar, vocabulary, vocabulary usage, sample sentences and cultural notes.


Apart from the lessons, we also have hundreds of vocabulary lists for you to enrich your vocabulary. You can check out these at https://www.GreekPod101.com/Greek-vocabulary-lists/


I hope this is helpful. If you have any more questions about the website or Greek, don't hesitate to contact us again. Wishing you all the best!


Sincerely,

Hi Nuno,


Thank you for contacting us and for your kind comment as well!


If we were to separate the expression in syllables according to syllabification rules of the Greek grammar, then yes, it would have to be:


Κα-λώς ο-ρί-σα-τε.


I guess the voice actress is just separating everything as if it were one word and to be honest it can be written as one word too, "καλωσορίσατε," because we do have the verb καλωσορίζω (to welcome). Both versions (separated, not separated) are correct.

Hi,


Great job with the lessons, I'm loving learning Greek!


I have one question about this lesson: when separating in syllables, the teacher says "ka lo so ri sa te". Shouldnt it be "ka los o ri sa te"? Apologies for the lack of accents, UK keyboard...


Keep up the great work!

Hi Melania, Lauren,


Below are the answers to your questions.


Δεν means "not" and it's a particle we put in front of verbs to make them negative (like when using "don't). It is pronounced exactly like the English "then" (the tongue is between the teeth). It is never pronounced with a Z sound.


Κάνει is the verb "to do" in a form that means "it does".


Τίποτα means nothing.


What this sentence literally means is that "it does nothing", "it's nothing", i.e. "it costs nothing" to the person to do whatever favor or deed he or she did. It's a way to answer when someone says "thank you".


Kind regards,


Stefania

I have the impression that Δεν (in Δεν κάνει τίποτα) is pronunced Zen with a Z. Is it correct? Or is it Den ? 😳😅

Having the words broken down by syllable is quite helpful. I do have to get used to trying to say it faster. These lessons are helping greatly

Hi Caroline,


Yes, they would be different expressions:


you're welcome = παρακαλώ

welcome (to Greece) = καλώς ήρθες (στην Ελλάδα) in informal Greek or καλώς ήρθατε (στην Ελλάδα) in formal Greek.


Let me know if you have any more questions.


All the best,


Stefania
