That's why it requires No Time! The course is introductory-level and will help you master the basics of the language for business or travel; yet the grammar and sentences are contemporary and not simplistic. There is extensive vocabulary and conversation practice, plus an explanation of the language's structure and grammar. The course consists of two hours each of conversation, speaking, and vocabulary ( = 6 hours).

Item Code : SPOK18161
Includes 6 sixty-minute audio CD discs, and a 356-page textbook. Everyday speech of educated Greeks. Text in Roman transcription and Greek orthography. Spoken Language Services is "the original self-study language teacher." Featuring techniques pioneered by professional linguists during World War II, these no-nonsense courses have been used successfully by thousands of students to jump-start their foreign language training. No other method has proved more effective than the simple listen-and-imitate method these courses employ. In fact, it is the same way we all learned as children to speak our native language! Most of the courses in the Spoken Language Series were prepared originally by professional linguists under the aegis of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Linguistic Society of America. Books are self-instructional and are accompanied by cassettes keyed to the course material. Cassettes are recorded by native speakers and cover conversations, pronunciation exercises, and TRUE-FALSE tests. Each word or phrase is spoken first in English* and then twice in the language of the course, with a pause after each utterance to allow the listener to repeat and imitate. The cassettes can be used for practice without the text. Grammatical explanations are given for the language content already learned. The learner gets systematic development of the linguistic structure instead of first learning a grammar and then trying to fit utterances into it. Course material covered in Book I is roughly equivalent to one semester's intensive study (8 class hours per week with 30 hours outside practice). At the end of the course the learner should have a good grounding in everyday vocabulary, grammar, and usage, and be able to communicate with native speakers. This could be exactly the course that you are looking for!

THE PIMSLEUR METHOD: With the Pimsleur Language Programs you don't just study a language, you learn it -- the same way you mastered English! And because the technique relies on interactive spoken language training, the Pimsleur Language Programs are totally audio -- no book is needed! The Pimsleur programs provide a method of self-practice with an expert teacher and native speakers in lessons specially designed to work with the way the mind naturally acquires language information. The various components of language -- vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar -- are all learned together without rote memorization and drills. Using a unique method of memory recall developed by renowned linguist, Dr. Paul Pimsleur, the programs teach listeners to combine words and phrases to express themselves the way native speakers do. By listening and responding to thirty minute recorded lessons, students easily and effectively achieve spoken proficiency. No other language program or school is as quick, convenient, and effective as the Pimsleur Language Programs. The Pimsleur language courses are offered in both the "Basic" and the "Comprehensive" programs. The Comprehensive Program is the ultimate in spoken language learning. For those who want to become proficient in the language of their choice, the Comprehensive programs go beyond the Basic Programs to offer true spoken-language fluency. Using the same simple method of interactive self-practice with native speakers, these comprehensive programs provide a complete language learning course. The Comprehensive Programs are available in a wide variety of languages and run through three levels (thirty lessons each). At the end of a full Comprehensive Program listeners will be conducting complete conversations and be well on their way to mastering the language.
