Hi Andees,

A question is, what Greek dialect you'd like to start with. In any case, you will need to have some very basic knowledge, as is the alphabet. You can study the alphabet (including listening to sound files) at Elpenor (1st lesson: http://www.ellopos.net/elpenor/greek-language.asp )

Then you go on to the second and third lessons - and after that (if you are still alive!) we talk again. :)

Hello Andees. Congratulations on your decision to learn Greek, which is the basis of Latin and almost all the European languages. I had an interest on etymology and Ι've created a blog entitled "English words of no Apparent Greek Origin". There you can find the etymology of words like parliament, sincere, vow, library, mortality, stop, script, etc. All of them have a Greek etymon, a Greek root. In each post, you can also find modern Greek words related to the etymon, so you can learn them easily.
Best regards.
John
