Whatever you may think of the UK joining the Euro, I am afraid that prices have risen considerably over the past year, both in Greece and as a result of the pound having lost 20% of its value against the Euro. We have tried our best to maintain prices, but we have had to increase the price of some course books by approximately 10%. Sorry about this. SJ

Right, this series also  requires a wee bit by way of explanation, so pay attention there at the back of the class: There are 2 books to this series. The first is called "Greek Now 1+1" and the second, "Greek Now 2+2". Both of these text books have 2 workbooks to go along with them, though they are an optional extra. There is also an answer key to both parts of the textbooks, but you will need the workbooks, as the answers are to questions in those. Each part also has 2 cassettes, which thankfully are sold as a pack. I hope that made sense, but if not they are listed below in order:

An excellent course for learning Greek. The tapes make it suitable for "home-learners", though really these are classroom books. The fact that these books have English in, unlike the "Greek Now" or Communicate in Greek courses, make them far easier to understand.

Learning Modern Greek as a foreign Language: A communicative Approach, by Smaro Vogiatzidou. 2002. An absolutely wonderful course, involving a textbook, which comes with a cassette and a workbook, a book for oral practice and accompanying 3 cassettes.Unfortunately we are unable to offer this course in constituent parts at the moment which is a great pity as, in my opinion, it is by far-and-away the best course book to learn Greek that has been written. Clear chapters with superb grammatical explanations in English (!!!) would make this an ideal book to be used in a classroom, but to compete with the likes of "Greek Now" and "Communicate in Greek", this book really should be obtainable on its own with the option to obtain the rest of the series, as and when, one needs them. Saying that, this is exceptional value.
