Greek Language Resources
Greek is one of the world’s oldest languages and today Modern Greek is spoken by approximately 17 million people. Learning Greek will increase your understanding of European history and culture; many of the most important philosophical ideas and literary genres came from Greece.
Modern Greek is descended from Classical Greek and still uses the same 24 letters of the alphabet. A good many Modern Greek words and roots will already be familiar to you, especially those of you with a scientific or technical vocabulary. Knowledge of less widely known languages, such as Greek, will make you stand out to an employer, so why not start learning Greek today?
