Book review: The Greek Salad (Grammatakia series)


The Greek salad is a delightful book that teaches Greek in a unique way; not only does it teach a host of useful words and phrases, but it also introduces the reader to many facets of the Greek culture. For one, this book in the Grammatakia series is all about the infamous food culture that is immense in Greece. Sofia is celebrating her name day and is preparing a typical Greek salad for her guests, but the ingredients are not exactly cooperating. Instead, they are busying themselves with various Olympic games! The illustrations are a joy to behold, especially the ones featuring Sofia’s cousins; they are a truly delightful bunch! There is also a sheet of stickers inside the book that I’m sure will delight students of Greek of all ages. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the series will bring. I recommend this to anyone who loves my country and would like to learn a bit of Greek without worrying about its (admittedly) painfully difficult grammar! (I received a free copy of the book in return for my honest review.)

My rating:




Looking for a short book that will teach you a little Greek and entertain? And I don’t mean just the kids! Look no further  – check out this brightly colored delight on Amazon now! (Available only as a hardback)
