    Hello posters,

    I am pleased to announce the opening of Greek Resources Suggestion sticky. This thread accepts suggestions for resources that help learners in various aspects of the Greek language. Contributions, upon approval, are to be listed in Greek Resources. Please note that this thread is NOT the Greek resources collection but a place to suggest resources that other posters may find useful.


    Please make sure that your suggestions contain the following items:
    a. URL
    b. a short description of the Web page: what information it presents, how the info is presented and so on.
    c. one and only one category label

    Below is an example contribution:
    Quote:Softwares - A Firefox add-on to enable easy input of Unicode characters: to enable macron and brevis shortcuts.

    Category labels

    In order to easily locate resources, approved links are going to be sorted in separate sections, each of which consisting of links relevant to a particular section. Please use category labels to suggest where the posted resources should belong to. Below are the category labels tentatively created. If you come up with a resource that fits in none of the labels, you are free to propose a new category label in your suggestion post.

    Online Lessons/Tutorials, Words and Phrases, Literature, Pronunciation, Web Services, Media, About Latin, Dictionaries and Other Reference, Softwares

    Hello ppl,

    I found a very interesting (so as not to say great) site on Greek... but I don't know how to categorize it... It seems to have "everything" (haven't seen all the material "in there" just yet). It has language and literature related material... (I've seen some exercises, literary texts, links to online dictionaries) I think it's a nice site to browse for those interested in Greek language.

    Misc. resources (don't know a better category label, maybe you have more inspiration) - Greek language and literature gateway (in Greek). Η πύλη για την Ελληνική Γλώσσα.

    Hello again,

    browsing through my files I came across an older one with some links. I thought it might be nice of me to share them.

    Grammar: (Modern Greek) - Phonology, Morphology, word order, a brief history
    (I found it quite useful especially for reference.)

    Misc: - literature, arts and science and other aspects of Greek life through the ages.

    I think this has to be the best online Greek-English dictionary I have ever used. Sorry if someone's already posted this link.

    Following are two websites which may be usefull to beginners studying greek. They both have pretty much the same content but in different forms. The first site is a blog site that I put together throughout last year keeping track of the topics covered in evening classes I attended both as an aide to revision and to help anybody catch up who missed a class. The second URL covers the same information but in a more regular website format which is probably much easier to view. They were both written by me so may well have several errors, but I have had the Greek teacher of the course go through and correct what errors he found.

    Description: Course notes put together through a year 1 beginners Greek evening class. This site also contains various posts about activities going on with the class, but the bulk of the posts were notes on topics covered in class
    Category: Other Referance


    Description: The "referance" content of the above blog site transcribed onto seperate webpages per topic for easier printing and to get arround the problems some people have getting to blog sites. All the class activity related stuff has been excluded from this site - it's purely language course notes.

    Hope they may be of help

    Hello! I found these:

    a) URL:

    Description: A modern Greek-English / English-modern Greek dictionary. Not complete, but including many common words - with pictures. The best part is that you can listen to how the words are pronounced by native Greeks! Very good place for beginners! It is a project by "Yale University Center for Language Study"

    Category: modern Greek dictionary for beginners :)

    b) URL:

    Description: Exercises and tests on ancient Greek (it could well be described as an educational game:) ) by "University of Victoria"

    Category: ancient Greek exercises...

    I did a quick search and I didn't see this mentioned anywhere (though I am terribly sleepy and might have skipped it, in which case I apologise in advance):
    Description: Modern Greek slang, Greek>Greek dictionary. Apparently one can also add definitions to a term, rate existing definitions etc. when registered, although registration is not required to simply look terms up.

    Description: A multi-technical online glossary of terms for a wide spectrum of applications including chemistry, medical, computer, engineering and industrial fields.
    One can also participate, by sending in submissions of new terms, or by informing of terms that are not currently included, so that they can be added. English <> Greek.

    A Wikipedia-style encyclopedia site with a nice Greek>Greek dictionary, including plenty of colloquial words (I've been finding lots of Kazantzakis words there!:)). Just enter a word (or topic, for that matter) in the search box at the top of the page.

    CAUTION for non-native speakers: Since it's a wiki, if it cannot find your word it will prompt you to add an entry! Unless you really know what you are doing it's probably best to only enter queries in the "Μετάβαση"/"Αναζήτηση" box at the top right-hand side of the page. ;)

    A useful site (extensive, though not all-inclusive) for the translation and better understanding of financial terms is:

    This is the Home page, so you must click on 'Λεξικό Όρων' to start your search. Explanations are provided for quite a few complicated concepts, in Greek, easy to understand, and very helpful!

    About above:

    I'll second that. It's the only place (online or in a printed dictionary) where I was able to find σκοινοβασία, tightrope-walking. (I should have been able to figure it out, but I didn't.) Of course, it's Greek->Greek, which provides *more* practice…

    Description: In this page you can watch greek movies online for free. If you look around, you 'll definately find other interesting things too, like ancient greek literature or texts concerning greek mythology which could be read for practice. But the movies section provides a good opportunity to practise the listening skill!

    Hope you find it interesting too! :)

    Hello, everyone! I am an experienced language learner who has recently started learning Greek. I've translated about 60 words from English to Greek in an Excel spreadsheet, and I would like to get a native or advanced speaker to look over them and make sure they are right before I memorize them. Is there a place where I can do this on this forum, or are there other websites where I can get help with such things?

    Thanks in advance for your answer!

    Description: This is my site that I'm building basically as a place to collect resources exactly like the ones you all are sharing here (in fact, I've listed a lot of the ones already mentioned, and I'll be adding links to the many excellent ones you've found that I knew nothing about). The entire focus of the site is Greek and Levantine Arabic learning materials, so if you have suggestions on things I should add, please feel free to PM me.
