Modern Greek has the longest documented history of any Indo-European language with more than 3,000 years of written records that exist in literature and other sources. It was once the lingua franca of the Mediterranean world and today is spoken by more than 13 million people.
And now, Drops would like to say Γεια (pronounced: ya) to Greek language learners and invite you to learn the Greek language, the latest addition to the app.
The Greek language is native to Greece, Cyprus, and other areas in the Mediterranean. It uses the Greek alphabet as its writing system and works in the language include the Iliad and the Odyssey and even the New Testament in the Bible. Today, it is recognized as the official language in Greek and Cyprus and as an official minority language in seven other countries. It is also one of the European Union’s official languages.
In learning Γεια, you’ve taken the first step to learning the Greek language. And it’s just one word of many that you can learn with Drops. You can multiply that knowledge by the thousands using Drops, learning both relevant and practical vocabulary. We’ve worked with local translators and native speakers to ensure you get a high-quality Greek language learning experience.
Maybe your goal is not fluency, but simply to be polite when interacting with the locals. Try Drops Greek to learn to say please (σας παρακαλούμε) and thank you (ευχαριστώ) and other phrases of courtesy all tourists should know.
The opportunity to swipe, tap and play your way to learning thousands of words in ελληνικά (elliniká)--that’s Greek for “Greek”, drop by drop!
The Drops team assembles useful, highly-relevant word lists you won’t find elsewhere. It’s one of the features in the app we’re most proud of because it offers you a customized and seamless Greek learning experience.
Whether you’re interested in talking about history or figuring out how to get around on your upcoming trip to Ελληνική Δημοκρατία (“Greece”), Drops is here to support you.
Before we say εις το επανιδείν (“until we meet again”), we’d like to invite you along on an odyssey with us. In just five minutes a day, you can start learning the Greek language. We hope you enjoy the journey.
Sound fun? Easy? Effective? It is.
