I am Greek born in the UK and spke Greek before I spoke English and can speak quite well in Greek and read and write a bit. My daughter who is 4 is half Greek half Ghanian and knows a little Greek. My mistake was not speaking to her as much Greek as I should of when she was small and know I want to get on track and teach her more Greek and be as fluent as me and better. I write on my blog the ways I teach her Greek and Ghanian with my husbands help but I do not know of any resources for childeen aged 4 that is fun and enjoyble so if anyone knows of any Greek resources out there Id love to know, or Ghanian (“,)

A good source for learning the alphabet it the website filoglossia ( It teaches, in the first lesson, the letters and their combinations, with gif images showing how to write them, as well as audio samples.
For some cool lesson with audio, you can register at ( The registration is free and you will have acess to many lessons which get more complex as you proceed, and with interesting conversations by the teachers. I learned a lot with those lessons, so I highly recomend them.

We speak non-native German and are looking to refresh that through this challenge. We are also beginning Modern Greek and I mean beginning. Our goals in Greek are to learn enough to survive there on our own for a couple of weeks. I would like to learn as much as possible without sacrificing our daily efforts in German.

I’ve written a post on my blog of our first 3 weeks learning Greek and how I try and make it fun for my daughter and how we have overcome obstacles. Here it is you may find it helpful with our Greek and German too.
Plus if you have any fun helpful tips on learning a language I would love to hear about them (“,)
