"Lessons For People Who Love Learning Greek": The 5 Best From The Blog For 2017

As the year slips away, I thought to share with you the 5 most loved articles from the blog - along with a huge thanks to you, dear reader!

Looking back at 2017, I'm grateful how both Alpha Beta Greek blog and the Bibliotheke have received and keep receiving your love and encouragement ever since they went online in May.

When I started this project the only thing I was certain of was my own passion for teaching Greek and sharing the wonders of language learning with others - both as a teacher and a learner of languages myself.

Now, a bit more than 6 months later, I feel lucky and privileged to have met so many of you and have shared with you the love for the Greek language.

People from Canada to Vietnam, from New Zealand to South Africa we all share the same passion. It's amazing.

You're part of this project and above all you are a huge inspiration. Ευχαριστώ - Thank you!

So, as a roundup for 2017, here are the 5 blog posts you loved the most:
