Learn Greek

Greek is one of the classic ‘root languages' so is a fascinating challenge to new learners. The very word ‘Alphabet’ comes from Greek – alpha and beta are the first two letters of its alphabet and it’s also where Russian Cyrillic is developed from. English speakers will recognise loads of words such as phone, photo and tele but the word Nai means Yes which can be confusing to some.§
