Word for the Travel Wise (07/20/06)

Each day I post a word that I find online somewhere that tickles my fancy or one I’ve pulled from my own very personal foreign language vocabulary bank, but what I’d really love to do is the whole immersion thing some place like Greece. You know, spend months soaking in sun from the sky and the sounds of the people… Ah. How good life could in Santorini for a few months. Don’t you agree?

Online sources for learning Greek for free include BBC Languages and AGNI. The courses at BBC Languages are incredible. Probably one of the best you’ll find online and audio can even be found for today’s word by clicking here. Amerispan offers Greek immersion and language courses in Athens. Pretty pricey, but hey it’s Greece!

Past Greek words: toh karavee, Pascha, aigolios
