What's a good free crash course on Greek? Nothing more complex than "Hello. Where is __? How much is it? (I'll take it || That's too much). Thank you. Goodbye". I'm sure I could do it in English -- I've been to Mykonos on vacation before and all the shops could speak a plethora of languages -- but I'd like to be polite and use their language as much as possible.

Nothing? I 'm really only interested in basic pleasantries.

When I went to Russia I had a vocabulary of maybe twenty words but the natives were tickled pink that I made an effort at all. I'd like to do the same in Greece,

I am sorry. I have no vices for you to exploit.



Wouldn't Duolingo be sufficient for this purpose?

I don't know. Would it? I've never used Duolingo .

I am an autistic asshole that is incapable of understanding anything that isn't face value. Please consider my disability when reading my posts.

If Greek is like any of the other Duolingo courses, then it would be sufficient for this purpose.

:unsmith: i like nice words


The Science, Academics, and Languages subforum is probably a better fit for the question. Their Greek thread is about Classical Greek, but you could ask in the small questions / chat thread
