Last night I got chucked in at the deep end in terms of understanding fluent fast colloquial Greek speech. It is so much easier to understand when the speakers have a good command of the language so both there accent, manner of speech and grammar are on top form. I spent an throughly enjoyable couple of hours listening even though I mostly knew the content of the stories already. I think this helped along with English interludes and the occasional picture.

I still have much to learn here but I have most definitely crested that hill and I saw a picture recently that said that if your thinking of giving up remember that the fruit is the last thing to grow on a plant. Ie it takes a very long time to see your efforts being rewarded but when they do it’s so sweet.

Thankyou for all your efforts and keep going as you will get there!

Best wishes
