An excellent video about the history of the Greek language.

 

According to its author (Paul Jorgensen), this video is all about the Greek language, its history and development, and some important features of the language.

Excellent, indeed. My studying and learning of this language will never be "finished" and I love to see little lessons like this. Thanks, Admin!

How would you respond to his question at the end of the video:

 

To people who have studied Greek: What did you find challenging, and not so challenging, about Greek:?

Well...as a senior citizen, retaining vocabulary is more difficult than it would have been when I was younger. But conjugating verbs is what I find the most difficult. The only chance I get to actually use the language is during my annual 3-4 week visit to Greece, but I study it daily at home.

I'd think that conjugating verbs is a difficult concept for native English speakers (as it's not something they learned to do when they were young) but it would most likely not be that difficult for native French, Italian, Spanish speakers as they're already conjugating verbs in their native tongues, so the concept wouldn't be foreign to them.

Yes, I agree. People from those countries often comment about how easy it is for them to learn Greek.
