Video: Overview of the Greek Language (Ελληνικά)

Greek language overview video

The lowdown on Greek

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of Greek including its history, where it is spoken (global distribution), the evolution of its writing system, an overview of how the language works, what other languages have influenced it, what regional varieties exist and much more.

Paul includes example samples of the Greek language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.

This video is all about the Greek language, its history and development, and some important features of the language.
