I highly recomend against Pimsluer as you get no real grasp of the language from it.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Especially with Greek there are many ways to say the same thing, and pimsluer just doesn't give you the knowledge to handle that - nor to even read Greek.
A good place to start out is [i[Colloquial Greek: The Complete Course for Beginners[/i] found here http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0415325145/ref=pd_bxgy_text_1/002-1872092-0430467?v=glance&s=books&st=*
.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Also the tapes are helpful for hearing the flow of the langauge.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
If you are up for the challange of a book with no English in it (except the vocabulary section in the back) there is a book called ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€¦Ã‚Â¾ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂÃƒÆ’Ã‚ÂÃƒâ€šÃ‚ÂÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂµÃƒÆ’Ã‚ÂÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¾ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Âµ ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â»ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â»ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â·ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â½ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¹ÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂºÃƒÆ’Ã…Â½Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬; which I find is very good.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š This has advatages of creating an immersion feeling, but not good if you have no experience of the language nor frequent contacts with native speakers.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
But why speak Greek when the language of Christ and Apostles was Russian?! Po - po!
