Thank you Thala. I have inserted this item amongst the list of readers above and have created a line for "Masaresi: Your Greek Shop" under the Miscellaneous section.

Thank you very much for the link. I have inserted it under the "Miscellaneous" section. In passing, locating "Greek" in their list of languages is complicated by the fact that website designers have chosen the alternate spelling "Creek". :roll:

It's goal, as stated on the site is "to support Greek language education, to maintain Canada's linguistic & cultural resources and to foster intercultural awareness." https://greeklanguage.ca/en/

Here are four resources I'm using now and recommend:

Language Transfer

Easy Greek

Two interlinear short story collections with audio here and here. The stories are "on the theme of humans and time." So far I'm about halfway through the first book, and I'm finding the stories thoughtful and interesting.

And then three Assimil Greek courses have been published. The most recent (2017) is by Jean-Pierre Guglielmi. I believe it's currently only available in French. The initial lessons are short and simple, but the learning curve soon gets steeper. The course has a continuing storyline. The previous course is Le nouveau grec sans peine from 1996, and it's available in several languages besides French. Some discussion of these two courses in this post and the two posts following. And the original Assimil Greek course was Le grec sans peine.

This is all that remains of Post #1. What happened to the list of Modern Greek Resources?

Edit: Never mind.... all has become clear. In the meantime here's a link to the HTLAL (which looks like where all this stuff ended up):

This is a dictionary by a famous professor called Γεώργιος Μπαμπινιώτης. I don't know if it has already been listed here. Any of his videos you can find on youtube is more than worth it, if you are advanced.
