You’ve studied grammar. You’ve learned new vocabulary.
But you still want to improve your speaking skills.
You want to be able to start a chat or hold a conversation but you feel you don’t have many opportunities to practice spoken Greek. Like a muscle that needs exercising to become stronger, you might be wondering how to find more opportunities to practice, improve and make your Greek speaking dream come true.
No magic is involved. Greek Recorder is an online program that helps you speak more & improve your Greek without Skype lessons, in just 3 weeks.
For 3 weeks you practice with short and relevant to your interests speaking prompts. You record your answers and you get my detailed feedback about your use of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. By the end of the program, you feel more confident and energized to start a chat with locals, friends and family.
During these 3 - Weeks the program will help you:
Become more confident about everyday life chats and conversations with locals, friends and family
Identify where you need improvement, by receiving personalized feedback on your speaking
Monitor your progress with a step by step plan without getting overwhelmed
Express yourself & talk about things that matter to you
Feel excited and happy about seeing yourself speaking more and more Greek
Here’s what my student Ian says:
“Your approach is the most useful tool I have had as yet.”
“I thought that this program would not deliver my expectations. I needed a program that would enable me to progress and keep me motivated.
Now, I have more realistic expectations about my progress and sustained motivation. This was provided by your many hints and tips.
The recordings enabled me to compare and contrast my speaking with yours, improve and monitor my progress, identify words and phrases that I need to improve. Your approach is the most useful tool I have had as yet.”

How does the program work?
Your weekly schedule
Because there are no online appointments or Skype lessons, you don’t have to worry about not being available on certain days or times.
Practically, this means that you receive your supporting worksheet (one each week) on Thursday and then you have one whole week to finish the 3 speaking tasks, send them to me and get my feedback.
You can send all your speaking tasks in 1 day or spread them out in the week. It’s up to you. Every study week is from Thursday to Wednesday.
Your speaking tasks (voice recordings)
You choose the theme of your interest for the 3 weeks of the program. After all, it’s all about talking about what interests you, right?
With the help of the supporting worksheets (vocabulary and phrases) you reply to the speaking prompts of your choice.
Then, you record your answers & send them to me. You can record using your phone (if your phone doesn’t have this option let me know - I’ll suggest a simple to use, free online tool).
The juicy part! You receive my detailed, personalized feedback in audio and written form.
This is where you find my detailed comments about grammar, structure, better/alternative word use, pronunciation and intonation.
And because the feedback is about your own unique way of speaking, you can implement it right away. By right away I mean next time you open your mouth to speak Greek. (I might add some fun etymology facts too, if you’re into that!).
Depending on your individual needs, I suggest extra resources about a grammar point you can review or new vocabulary, for example.

Here’s what my student Mardie says:
“I wanted to improve my ability to speak Greek. Danae offered me a way to achieve that.”
“I didn't think I had any more free time to devote to extra language studies, but I wanted to improve my ability to speak Greek. Danae offered me a way to achieve that.
I found the supporting worksheet easy to understand and I could read it quite well without having to look up too many words in the dictionary. Recordings made me more conscious of my pronunciation of Greek words.
Also, when Danae offered audio comments on my oral submissions I could understand what she was saying to me. That made me full of joy and encouragement.”
