Lesson 1

- The Greek Alphabet

   You are looking at the first Greek grammar lesson "the Greek Alphabet".
Make sure you learn the sound of each letter and learn how to write it. We have included audio of the name of the letter and an example of a Greek word to avoid any confusion among regional accents (i.e. English, American, Australian...).
When you think you've mastered it, go ahead and click the link for Lesson 2, which will teach you the double letters.
