This course in Modern Greek, consisting of 100 lesson units in 13 volumes, is one of the Defense Language Institute's Basic Course Series. The course is designed to train native English language speakers to Level 3 proficiency in comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing Modern Greek. (Level 5 is native-speaker proficiency.) Lesson units contain sections of basic sentence dialogs with translations, pattern drills, grammatical analyses of the structures presented in each unit, exercises, and vocabulary listings. All Greek material appears in Greek orthography. Volumes I-VII present the Demotic, spoken form of the language. Volume IX introduces Katharevousa, the literary, written form. (Oral drills in Demotic are continued throughout the course.) The cultural content of the material is aimed at orienting American military personnel to Greek cultural patterns. (AMM)
