Re: Learning a New Language with Duolingo

You could also try listening to some podcasts or watch YouTube videos that teach Greek. Quizlet is very useful for building vocabulary with flashcards, with lots of communal decks uploaded by people. You could choose the level of difficulty and some of them even have audio to help with pronunciation.
